One physician suggested putting me on dialysis. Was seen by Dr. Walia and her treatment plan prevented me from having to be placed on dialysis. This is a blessing and we are very happy with all that Dr. Walia has done for me. Would recommend her to family and friends.

Dr. Walia met me in the hospital while very ill and mentally discouraged. As a young woman with a lot of life to live I was scared and afraid. Now 8 months later and still in healing I have never been more confident in my health. This is not because of medicine or lifestyle changes, but because of my doctor. She is compassionate and intelligent. She truly makes a difference and I look forward to her guiding my healthcare, as needed, for a lifetime. Monica@Janelle are also the best nurses ever!
