He took a look at my eye not more than 5 seconds may be and told what it is. That shows experience. It was a minor thing anyway, but his confidence in diagnosing it is fantastic.

My son is in medical school and saw him lecture. We went to the office after he said how nice he seemed. We just think the world of him. Best surgeon and bedside manners.

Dr. Walsman is a skilled and caring ophthalmologist. The first time he treated me my regular eye doctor (Dr. Donald Cinotti) was not in the office, and I had an emergency. Dr. Walsman gently lifted my lid and removed part of a beetle that had flown into my eye. Though I also love Dr. Cinotti, Dr. Walsman's hours fit my schedule better. Two years ago, he performed cataract surgery on both my eyes, and I now see 20/20. I cannot praise Dr. Walsman enough

I have had Glaucoma surgery from Dr. Walsman, and have been a quarterly patient at his Millburn office for several years. He is an extremely qualified and caring doctor, who explains problems in layman's terms and keeps patients calm and comfortable. My children see him as well. I highly recommend his services.

I was referred to him by my general Ophthalmologist because of my lens becoming dislocated after cataract surgery. Dr. Walsman answered all of my questions and was able to easily explain how he would suture my lens back in place. Everything turned out just like he said it would. He really is amazing and I am so happy to have been referred to him.
