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.
