It's always a pleasure as well as an honor to see Dr. Walsh and again shake his hand as it was his hands that saved me from not being here 19 years ago last July 9th, so this is why it's always an honor to go see him.

Dr.Walsh and his office staff are professional and very friendly. Dr.Walsh is always accommodating when giving you answers to questions you may have and he always gives you his opinion which I like. I am sent appointment reminders via email which I appreciate and there's never too long of a wait when you get to the office for your appointment. I completely reccomend Dr.Walsh at the Heart Institute in.S.Pasadena,Florida. Thank You for great care!

I first met Dr Walsh in 1989. A friend of mine had a very bad heart and Dr Walsh was recommended to me. A few years later Dr Springle had recommended him for me when I had a heart problem. Dr Walsh is a excellent doctor. I have been going to him for over 20 years now. I have also had other friends that has used Doctor Walsh. and We all really like him. He is very through and and very good. He really knows and explains every thing to you. My husband also used him and really liked him. Some times his wait time is long but that is usually when he called in for an emergency surgery. As you know we cannot always schedule a heart tack. The staff will always let you know when this happen and they will give you another appointment if you are unable to wait.
