Dr. Walter and Virginia Surgery Associates provided excellent services. They were able to diagnosis my issue immediately and were amazingly responsive and caring. A serious problem undetected by other physicians was resolved with a procedure and out-patient surgery. High marks for professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern.

I received the most professional and complete care for a bilateral hernia repair thanks to Dr Walter and his fine staff at VSA and at the Glen Echo Center. I could not be more pleased. This was my first surgery and I am 69. I had some trepidation and all that was immediately mitigated by all involved. Mike Finn

Dr. Walter is awesome ! My daughter had been to 3 emergency rooms, seen numerous doctors and no one could diagnose her condition. Doctor Walter listened carefully to her issues, suggested a few more tests and diagnosed her problem - mals. Dr. Walter's nurses were very helpful in the process as well. I am convinced that if we had not met Dr. Walter, my daughter would not have a gall bladder and she would still be in pain and we would still be searching for her issue.

Dr. Walter was fantastic. I got through my surgery with very little pain and everything went as expected. I was up and moving around in a couple days and didn’t even miss work. If I ever need surgery again he will be my surgeon.

Had minor abdominal surgery and Dr. Walter was great. Was able to perform the surgery within days of initial appointment. Short and sweet. No issues and I'm recovering quickly.

Dr. Walter performed an emergency appendectomy a couple of weeks ago and saved my life. He did a nice job in making sure my wounds healed nicely. Thank you Dr. Walter!

Dr. Barry Walter is an outstanding surgeon and 100% committed to the care of his patients. He saved my life from colon cancer which was a complex presentation! Post precautioanary radiation treatment Dr. Walter was committed to address my chronic bowel obstruction condition which other doctors I consulted offered no real solution. Dr. Walter unturned every stone ultimately leading to a capsule endoscopy which uncovered radiation enteritis , surgically resolved the issue offering me NEW HOPE!!!

He is a doctor who does not care about his patients, he does not mind finding appointments for close surgery, despite having a lot of pain the patient has to wait, and his nurse is the same, she does not answer the calls nor return the messages, too bad doctor and bad attention.

All he had to do was remove my sutures from my operation to remove a cyst 10 days prior. He couldn't accomplish this task and left a suture behind, which generated scar tissue and a rash. When I called after hours to complain about the situation, nobody from VSA returned my call.
