    in Asheville, NC |
    I have since moved from New York but I just wanted to express my appreciation for Dr. Walfish and all he did for me when I was ill with Lyme in his care. I always felt that Dr. Walfish had my interests and my health as a top priority and he seems to have inexhaustible energy for thinking through and planning the best care on an ongoing basis. He's a very serious doctor but also a bit of a healer. It was great feeling completely taken care of by a competent professional who obviously cares.
