Largo, FL |
Dr Walsh is the best
Pinellas Park, FL |
I am very happy with care received at Dr Walsh office from him, his staff, and corresponding treatment at Largo Medical Center. I would definitely recommend Dr Ron Walsh to everyone.
in Clearwater, FL |
He and his staff have always expressed the epitome of professionalism, expertise and courtesy during my many years as his patient.
in SEMINOLE |
I was referred to Dr Walsh in December 2011 by my pcm. Each visit (annually) has been handled professionally from the front desk to the nurses to the Dr and to the scheduling desk. Dr Walsh reviews my ekg comparing to previous years and talks WITH me (not to me) as to the results. He asks questions of what I am doing and if I have problems doing anything specific. I would highly recommend Dr Walsh and the whole associate base to anyone in need of a cardiologist.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!
in Seminole |
Dr. Walsh is the best Cardiologist I have encountered. His professional knowledge, his excellent bedside manners, and his genuine concern for his patients wellbeing is unsurpassed.
Seminole, FL |
Dr Walsh puts you at ease when you meet him. He takes his time explaining what he feels is the best approach to my treatment. Never did I feel rushed but always feel like I was informed and active in my heart health care. I would and do refer him to friends and family.
in Cape Coral, Florida |
I met Dr Walsh about two months ago because my cardiologist here in Cape Coral said I needed an operation, and Dr Walsh felt differently. He did tests and found another route he'd like to do combat my issues. I loved him so much when we met, I switched to him, well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive!
in Largo, Fl |
This was a first appt. with Dr. Walsh. I feel so happy and safe that he will be my doctor. There wasn't anything I would change about this first visit and first impression. I attended a seminar that he gave and found that he was very comfortable and eager to answer questions and teach. That was important to me. I have already recommended Dr. Walsh to my neighbor who is looking for a new doctor.
in Largo, FL |
Dr. Walsh is wonderful! Gave us all the time we needed to address our concerns and plenty of extra time to be sure we understood totally what what we should and should not be concerned about. He really went the extra mile to make us feel confident when we left the office that we were in good hands. Thank you Dr. Walsh
in St Petersburg, FL |
Would not recommend. A very nice man who should have retired four years ago.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us at The Heart Institute, so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please call Christine Perry at 727-489-5417.
