Dr Walzer is very thorough and very knowledgable. I have been his patient for almost 30 years and would highly recommend his practice. He is very demanding of his patients and will be the first to tell you if you need to lose 10 lbs; he's not a yes man. His staff is patient oriented and pleasant.

He is very informative and caring. I liked him because he doesn't seem to be rushed like a lot of other Dr's and answers all my questions. I was going to another urologist for years who kept me on antibiotics for years. Dr Walzer found my problem & was honest with me. The Dr that tied up my bladder raised it to high and was causing me problems & said I don't need to take the antibiotics. After I stopped the medicine I didn't have any infections. Nice he sees me every 2 yrs not every 6 mo.

Rushes you too much. You get 10 minutes and then basically get pushed out the door. If you go past your 10 minutes he gets up and opens the door and begins to walk out. He usually says...come here...let me give you this... walks you over to a cabinet of samples and gives you a sample of something and tells you goodbye. Was rude several times when I went. Only went to him 4 times and that was more than enough. Definitely do not recommend him.
