Dr. Walsh is probably the best doctor I have come across. He is courteous has a great personality and really cares about his patients. After my surgery I had a concern but couldn’t meet him during office hours. He stayed until 6 pm on a Friday to put my mind at ease!! How many other doctors would do that? I highly recommend him.

Dr Walsh is an amazing cardiovascular and general surgeon and I highly recommend him for superior medical care. I have been a patient for almost 7 years without his professional medical skills I would not be here today. Thankyou Dr Walsh and his nurse Mrs Rose.

He performed neurosurgery on my 3 year old daughter and saved her life. He was very calm, confidant and reassuring at the most difficult time of our lives.

Dr. Walsh has been very hands on and very informative through out my entire process. I has complications post surgery and he has been and continues to be kind, compassionate, and caring as I go through the healing process. He explained everything wonderfully and takes the time to answer any questions I have and ease any anxieties I have. I would recommend Dr. Walsh any day of the week!
