It was my first visit with Dr Walsh. He knew my concerns and after going over my recent blood works and going over my past stress tests, which were done at a different location, he went over what happens to the inside of the blood vessels as you get older and have some plaque buildup, and then told me that going thru all those tests again, and taking all kinds of medications to try to reduce the plaque, will have little effect, even after a long period of time, and could cost a lot of money that I don't need to spend. I really like a Dr who is thorough, and doesn't try to have you do things that he knows are unneccessary. I have already and will continue to refer folks to Dr Walsh.

while my visit with Dr. Walsh I was explaining my symptoms which I believe was heart related and he was able to explain to me what was actually going on had nothing to do with the heart. Because of his experience above and beyond a cardiologist he was able to give me more information as to what was going on and put my mind at ease and that I was not having any heart issues. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Dr Walsh has been my go-to for heart health for years. Great “bedside manner”, insightful, thoroughly prepared, focuses on his patient, asks the right questions, offers wise and practical advice for dealing with issues. Keeps up with the latest potential solutions. And he is a nice, respectful man.
