I first went to Dr. Walsh several years ago and he did a great job with both my knees for a torn miniscus. Prior to going I had read a lot of negative reviews and had actually called my doctor to refer someone else. He told me that he could but Dr. Walsh had been doing this a long time and was the best choice. So I went and at the beginning I did not find him to be very warm and friendly. But I soon found out that I was mistaken and that once I made an effort to engage in more dialogue with him- he was great!He did a great job with but my knees but due to severe arthritis in my right knee I just had to do a total knee replacement 4 weeks ago. I have no complaints about the surgical procedure and the follow up in his office has been just fine. An old work friend that I have known for 40 years just happened to be in his waiting room on my last visit. He told me that he has horrible knees and would not go to anybody else than Dr. Walsh. My wife is having a hip replacement by him next week

It sounds like Dr. Walsh is a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Unfortunately, I only dealt with Mr. Hyde. My first encounter with him was in the ER for a dislocation. There he berated me for going to a different doctor for my replacement surgery. In my follow-up appointments, he was very cold and abrupt. Now anytime I have to deal with him. he is rude and difficult. He tells me one thing, then when I call to do what he told me, he has an RN call and say I'm not his patient. I have found a new ortho.

My name is Angela Collier I had an independent exam request by State Farm. He lied on the report call me overweight obese which has nothing to do with shoulder. He lied that I was not injured in a car accident. His lies caused my medical claim to be denied. The Drs. that are treating me now said I need surgery and he says I don't. He is very rude and made up many lies in this report that has cause me to file complaint with medical board and BBB also State Farm to investigate his report.

My experience was a nightmare, Dr. walsh was a second opinion for my employer’s insurance. Dr walsh jerked my arm 3 times examing me. Had to see my dr. After extreme shoulder pain, laid in bed 5 days, until i received mri and surgery after dr. Walsh reported I didn’t need any surgery and work full duty. My dr. Relocated a torn bicep and I’m 80% pain free. Went thru my own insurance after bogus report from dr. Walsh. Dr’s help people and not take bribes from insurance companies to lie.

My daughter got hurt during a soccer game ER doctor said she fractured a bone in her ankle. Follow-up with Dr. Walsh and after a look at the xray said there was no fracture and somehow xray was misread. Thank you Dr. Walsh for being thorough and not just going along with what we were told. Cast was off and boot on in 30 minutes. Saved us lots of valuable summertime!

I broke my arm in several places in March 2016. He was the surgeon on call at CDH. He was abrupt and abrasive. He made a comment about my arm having too much "meat" (his exact words), making surgery difficult. His staff took my stitches out too early, resulting in a 3 inch gaping wound that took 2 months to close. I ended up seeing another ortho for post-op care because he honestly embarrassed/shamed me and that's not easy to do.

I had revision elbow replacement surgery from Dr. Wash March, 2017. Although I went there with many problems from previous surgeries done by a different doctor, Dr. Walsh stepped in and did an absolutely miraculous job. I thank God for Dr. Walsh. He is a very pleasant, confident doctor. I would recommend him to anyone, he is the best in my opinion. I wished I had found him sooner and it would have saved me a lot of grief.

Dr. Walsh is a professional and caring Doctor. He responds to messages and has been a great surgeon for me. Because he is so knowledgeable in his field I was able to have him do my left and right hip replacement and my partial left knee replacement in the last few years. He listens to you and his surgical staff are wonderful people. I originally found out about Dr. Walsh through a person I use to work with a long time ago. And, after my surgeries I've recommended other people to him as well.
