This doctor defiantly saved my life by replacing my aortic valve with two heart bypasses. Awesome surgeon and a very nice person.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Our experience with Dr Walinsky was nothing but amazing! My father was delivered to Memorial Hospital due to heart attack and per diagnosis surgery was needed. We were blessed to be in Dr Walinsky's care and him perform the surgery himself and watch my father post recovery at the hospital. Dr Walinsky understands the crucial condition his patients and their family members are in and approaches you with patience, knowledge & expertise. Thank you Dr Walinsky for all that you did for our family!

May 31, 2016 Dr. Walinsky replaced my aortic valve. He, and his staff cannot be rated higher by me and my wife, Joan. I am a 70 year old man and could only have anticipated a few more years of life without this operation. My heart is now evaluated as excellent, by other doctors. After 8 spinal fusions, my experience with surgeons and hospitals has not been uniformly excellent, but this time I could not be happier. I am deeply, deeply grateful.
in Corrales, New Mexico |
I owe my life to Dr. Walinski and his amazing staff. If not for his patience and caring I would not be alive to thank him. His attention to every detail of my care and his patience in helping me heal will never be forgotten.
