Dr. Nicholas Walsh has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    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.

  • Neurology

    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.

My mother has seen Dr. Walsh on and off over the past 28 years. He told me that he has writing her scripts for anything she asked for and as a result of this her mental health has gotten worse and worse over the years. When bringing her into the Mount Vernon Hospital ER a year and a half ago he told me the best thing I could do is move to the west coast and forget I have a mother. I was shocked to see such an unprofessional individual.

Very arrogant!

My experience with this Doctor (emergency room) was that he was rude and dismissive of my concerns. He wrote inaccurrate information in my medical record which caused confusion about my care. He was even rude to my regular Doctor when she tried to communicate with him on the phone. Some people should not be in medicine, let alone psychiatry!!

Stay away!!

I have had many horrible experiences dealing with this doctor. He has prescribed drugs for me that are very harmful and he has not been available for me when I ran out, which led me to withdraw nightmare on a couple of the things he prescribed to me. I would not recommend him for anybody.
