    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.
