He doesn't even deserve one star. Completely misdiagnosed blown out ligament. Now need surgery instead of the PT he prescribed after his 60 second exam after two visits. Go see anyone other than this guy (can't even use the word Dr).

My husband had surgery a few years ago. A problem resulted and Dr. Wallach did not return our calls- despite numerous attempts. His staff assistant Renee does not ever answer her phone or return calls either.

Staff had attitude with my crying teenage child simply because she was crying over her injury....more
