Dr. Welsh is always such a thorough and caring physician. She is a master at her work and always a delight to see and talk with. I have always felt so well cared for by she and her staff.
Dr. Welsh and her staff are the best! I've been coming here for over 20 years and I highly recommend BACD.
Dr. Austin and the wonderful team at BACD changed my life. I have always had eczema, but it was manageable. During the pandemic, I had a severe flare that covered my whole body and was so painful. It would not go away, and persisted for over a year. My old treatments did not work. I went to see Dr. Austin who took action, made a plan, and supported me throughout the treatment. Within 6 weeks, my skin was clear and has stayed that way. I am pain free. Now, she is helping me look and feel my best. BACD puts patients first. They support you with medical expertise and true care. Highly recommend!
