Dr. Walchak's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Walchak "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

This content was provided by Dr. Walchak "I understand the value of a physician-patient relationship and feel it is important to have open communication with patients. I believe treatment requires looking at the overall health of my patients and not just the present condition or issue."
