Lisa Welch, MD, the host of The Good Doctor, has her own private practice in metro Atlanta. A native of Tuskegee, AL, she received her undergraduate degree from Auburn University and obtained an MD at Morehouse School of Medicine (1993) in Atlanta, GA. She completed her Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at Eastern VA Graduate School of Medicine (1993-1996) in Norfolk, VA. She’s married and has one daughter.
Dedicated, compassionate and engaged, Dr. Welch brings more than 20 years of experience to her medical practice. Growing up in a community where receiving basic medical assistance was a challenge, she was inspired, at a very young age, to be an advocate for those who are underserved and have minimal or no health coverage.
Her commitment to her patients extends beyond a routine check-up. She encourages her patients to understand the importance of their family medical history and how it directly relates to them. According to Dr. Welch, “There are a lot of health issues that we see today that can be prevented or easily managed if the patient understands their medical history. Many health issues we see today are genetic or the result of family tradition or bad habits. Health issues apply to everybody, they are not color blind, and my goal is to inform, educate and encourage my patients to live a quality life.”
In a time where some doctors have become more self-serving, ignoring those that are underserved, Dr. Welch remembers her days as a youth and her desire to serve this community. She provides quality care to her diverse patient roster and also offers practical solutions on how to manage their healthcare during these challenging economic times.
Over the past decade, medical shows have dominated the airways and have become a platform to deliver important medical messages to its captive audience. With some shows reaching more than 10 million viewers, these shows often have more influence than credible TV news medical reporters, national news magazines and special reports on health. TV doctors are becoming the authority when it comes to medical conditions, but it is TV and the doctors are actors.
Enter in Dr. Lisa Welch. An accomplished internist for 20 years, Dr. Welch is a real doctor, with a real practice with real patients that offers real information that can save real lives.
