- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I am surprised by the one star comments. I transferred from a variety of specialists to Dr. Walsh, and he had reviewed my records and focused on three areas of concern at the first appointment. At the follow-up, we tackled another issue. My medicines were changed, and he tracked how I reacted to them. Two suggestions stopped side effects altogether. I started out with a complete physical with him, which did take time, but he was totally present going over the results. He listened to every one of my concerns, and had follow-up ready for the next appointment. Not everything required his attention, and his staff handled routine matters, like scheduling tests. I had no wait for my appointments. His staff is very competent and respects privacy. The office is comfortable and immaculate. Dr. Walsh is intelligent, has a sense of humor, and made sure I understood what was being said. As far as I am concerned, he is one of the best I have been to - just like all the others at VA Hospital Center.
As a family physician who seeks a personal physician for my own care, its not surprising I have a high standard for that clinician to meet my expectations. I have been going to Dr Walsh for about 8 years and have never been disappointed. Not only is he bright, he is compassionate as well. His office staff continues to excel in their service and attention - and I most like the "team and collaborative" atmosphere I experience there. As a doc I do not always agree with his recommendations over the years for my care - yet he listens to my opinion and honestly he has been more often right than I have. He does the most thorough physical exam as well as listens to my concerns. I highly recommend him for your care.
Dr. Walsh is my primary care physician. Owing to a number of illnesses, I have several specialists dealing with me, and I have found it extremely helpful to have Dr. Walsh take up overall management of my various ailments. Based on what I have observed, he seems to be held in high regard by the several specialists with whom I associate, and I would also not that he gives good, thorough, comprehensive care and is more than willing to explain all in whatever time it takes. In the three years I have known him, I have never felt rushed, stiff-armed, or ignored. His office is comfortable and well-located in Shirlington - easy to get to and plenty of parking once you arrive.
