Accepting new patients

It is important to me that my patients receive personal, compassionate and thorough care that is of the highest quality. As a cardiologist, I view patients as a whole instead of list of symptoms. I actively listen to questions and concerns patients may have and educate them on how to improve their health – and stay well. I have a special interest in treating hypertension and helping patients achieve their blood pressure goals.

Care Philosophy

We would recommend Dr. Walchak to anyone who is looking for a Cardiologist who is very kind and interested in all your cares and concerns. Questions are answered and conditions discussed in terms that are easily understood . He takes time to listen.!!!!! We both said to each other when we got to our car" He is such a nice man and he knows what he is doing". We are thankful for him.
I work with Dr. Walchak and I would recommend him in a second. He is a very thoughtful person with great integrity which he incorporates in his excellent patient care and work environment. Not to mention he is very intelligent. I love picking his brain and he always comes back with the latest statistics. He is someone I would send my family members and friends to!
