Dr. Walsh is the best. I travel from NYC to see him. Have been to him multiple times with different issues. Made diagnoses that other doctors missed. Simply outstanding. I trust him. I'm a doctor myself.

Unless your old and in the office constantly, there is zero chance of getting an appointment or having your prescription refilled. There's a reason why all young doctors are leaving this practice.

Was admitted to Hosital under Dr. Walsh's care on emergency basis -- very satisfied. He respects patients wishes. I find him extraordinarily understanding not to mention qualified.

He has been my primary care physician for over 25 years and is the most caring and compassionate doctor. He is the best primary doctor I have ever had. Have recommended him to everyone I know.
