Dr Walsh is a wonderful surgeon. He is compassionate and caring
in Harrisville, RI |
After experiencing arthritic pain of both thumb joints as well as DeQuervain's tenosynovitis. Dr.Walsh was very thorough in his examination and explained everything to me in detail. We discussed different options for treatment and the decisions were left up to me. The DeQuervain's was relieved during my first visit! After conservative treatment for my arthritis I made the decision to undergo LRTI surgery. Dr. Walsh was very compassionate throughout my recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Eric Walsh!
After waiting 45 minutes past scheduled appointment time, Dr. Walsh spent a total of 3 to 4 minutes in exam room, half of which was spent talking to med student. I didn't need surgery, but he left room before I had a clear idea of nature of injury or treatment. Poor communication skills.

I would highly recommend Dr. Walsh for any hand issues. He is extremely pleasant to deal with. Best hand surgeon Ive been to.
in Pawtucket, RI |
Dr. Walsh was very thorough explaining my surgery every step of the way. His follow-up care was very excellent. He was so good at explaining what to expect that I never even had to ask any questions about the care or treatment. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs any Orthopedic Surgery.

Dr Walsh is a consummate professional in all categories; as well as his supporting staff. His professional, soothing demeanor compliments his communication and surgical skills. He explains in detail, and is COMPLETELY thorough in his procedures. You will feel supported, not degraded. I've worked with him 3 times and he rates very high! I've referred family to see him. I've never felt so trusting and informed .I'm experienced and was blessed to get to meet him. You need to choose him.
