I could go on and on about how horrible of a doctor he is but there is not enough time in the day. Long story short, this man should not have a medical license. God help you if you are sent to him by workman's compensation because he will lie and say whatever workman's comp wants him to. After my husband was told by 3 doctors that he needed surgery this so called "doctor" LIED and said that he was fine to go back to work. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy! WORST DOCTOR EVER!!

I've been in need of a total hip replacement for some time now, but other doctors have said I am too young and should wait. Due to the increasing pain, decreasing mobility and constant wear on the joint, I decided to to ask one more doctor. Dr. Walsh sat with me and explained my xray. He also recommended surgery, which I now have scheduled in 4 weeks. He was understanding and willing to listen. His staff were friendly and courteous. I know 4 former surgical pts of his who highly recommend him.

I had a serious wrist infection (carpal tunnel area) that required immediate attention and surgery. I saw him repeatedly asking him to admit me to surgery that I had an infection. He did not do so and the pain increased. Then a blood culture confirmed an infection. I was admitted to Edward Hospital and needed immediate surgery. I suffered for 2-1/2 days before the doctor operated on me! I Dr. Walsh is not qualified to operate on hand and wrist surgeries! See a hand specialist if you need to.
in Naperville, IL |
He didn't explain the diagnosis properly. He didn't really answer to my questions either. He wasn't interested in figuring out what has caused my condition and how I could improve it myself or at least make sure it doesn't get any worse. He only offered medication and if those wouldn't work, after that more medication. I'm very dissappointed.
Oswego, IL |
Horrible experience. Extreme long waiting time, then he spent 5 minutes with me. He and his staff are unprofessional and uncaring. I would never recommend him. Huge mistake to go there .
in Crest Hill, IL |
I was having increase pain in my left hand related to an injury. I went to the emergent care and they were not too sure why I was having this pain. I scheduled a follow up appointment with Dr. Walsh due to recommendation from emergent care. I was able to get right in. Dr. Walsh came into the room with great bed side manor. He looked at my x-rays and then assessed my hand and was able to tell me exactly what was wrong with my hand. After he treated my injury pain I was pain free within three days
