Dr. Walia is a highly skilled and professional MOH's surgeon. The way she removed a cancer and did a skin graft for me for cosmetic purposes was fantastic. She's a keeper. So Ochsner should give her any amount of money it will take to hold onto her. In fact, her whole surgical team was very efficient, experienced and professional. They are the A-Team. They anticipated and allayed my every concern. Don't accept second best, demand Dr. Walia and her surgical team for dermatology.

Outstanding Mohs surgeon. Dr. Walia is very personable as well as being very talented. With her Basil Cell Carcinoma surgery, there was no pain during or after.

Dr. Walia is amazing! I was referred to her by my local demotogist to have a basil skin cancer tumor removed from the corner of my eye. I was awake durning the procedure, and Dr. Walia was very personable with me through the entire six hour surgery. She removed piece after piece of my skin until the lab informed her that she'd gotten all of the cancer out. The most amazing part is the talent, passion, and care the was applied to the stitching to insure minimal scarring. She saved my face!

Dr. Walia is an incredible physician. I have a history of skin cancer and have had several Mohs surgeries. She removed a skin cancer in the middle of my forehead that is barely noticeable. She is skillful, knowledgeable, and caring. I'm currently awaiting scheduling of a second procedure with her. We need more physicians like her.

How could anyone rate this Dr. anything less then 5 stars. She is the nicest, smartest and most caring individual I have ever met. She is also is to be trusted wholeheartedly with the MOH's surgery procedure. She has left me with an almost invisible scar on my chest. Awesome is all I can say and lucky for me I changed from my dermatologist who is not affiliated wit Ochsner to one who is and I was referred to Dr. Walia. I can't feel more satisfied and thankful to have met her.
