Dr. Walsh Says:
"

I try my best to give each patient my individualized attention. I do not use mid level providers so you can be assured that I will see you personally to address all your orthopedic needs and conditions.

Dr. Walsh treated my daughter for an injury to her finger. He was great with explaining the xrays and answering all of our questions.

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...more

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.
