Dr. Walzel is 5-star all the way. He is very personable and has an unassuming nature about him. He put me at ease right from the beginning. He explained the procedure in terms which were easy to understand and I never felt rushed during my office appointments. He gave me ample time to ask questions. At my initial surgery consultation he even stopped in the exam room to apologize for being 5 minutes (yes...only 5 minutes) behind schedule and told me he would be just a few minutes more. And he ret

Dr. Walzel was the epitome of professionalism coupled with kindness , caring and concern. At this juncture in my life, I don’t take kindly to “going under the knife” but my Doctor allayed my fears with his kindly attitude. Other staff remarking on how wonderful my Dr was further allayed my fears. Seven days later I am still on the mend (I’m 76) but grateful and thankful to Dr. Walzel for taking such great care of me.

Doctor Jack Walzel is simply AMAZING! He is the most caring, dedicated and interested doctor I have visited. This visit was completely unexpected and even when he had a rough day, he made the time to have me in and check upon me. His staff is also great, very courteous and nice all the time.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Walzel twice with intestinal problems/pain. During my second visit and to my relief, he decided after I explained all the pain, etc. I had incurred the week before that it was time to remove my gallbladder. I am scheduled for surgery Thursday, September 27th. I am at ease waiting for the surgery as Dr. Walzel was very thorough in explaining what will be done during the surgery. He has what is called "good bedside manners" as he listens to his patient. I do

Everything was great except the treatment which I assume means the surgery which is scheduled for next week. I really appreciated Dr. Walzel taking time to draw the illustration and explain my situation in detail. I am concerned about the dietary restrictions in order to minimize bloating and other negative side effects. I have had these problems for the past six weeks and really would like your advice on this subject. Thank you for your assistance with my situation.
