Dr. Francis X Walsh has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

I needed a followup appointment and was told that unless I could bring all the money to pay for the procedure up front even though I have insurance, I couldn't come get and be seen and not be in pain. I told them I just needed to transfer $ and 2 days wasn't enough time and they also hadn't done their job of getting procedure authorized anyway before appointment!! Cold hearted people, only care about money not about patient health!! The staff was so rude and callous!!
I don't know how the Doc is. However when I spoke on the phone with the secretary she was extremely rude and very unhelpful. I am having a hard enough time after a car wreck where I was rear ended so hard, they had to cut me out of my truck. I don't need to be spoken to like that and unfortunately I will never see the Doc cause I wouldn't want to meet the secretary I spoke to over the phone.
dr walsh was very nice. will see him again in a few weeks after having surgery. he was very responsive to my needs and quickly got me sn sppointment with a neurosurgeon.first doctor to ever show me my diagnostic results.
