  • "I have had four surgeries on my ankle with three doctors total and two of the surgeries were performed by Dr Walls. He took the time to explain my condition in great detail, consulted with other doctors not only from this practice, but from other doctors across the country. He took his time to make sure the surgeries were done correctly. I am extremely happy with the way he took care of me."

  • "Dr. Walls took the time to figure out what was wrong with my long standing injury. Five other doctors brushed it off as a sprain and said it would heal, but Dr. Walls listed to me and got to the root of my pain. He was patient and caring and took the time to explain to myself and my mom about what he found and what it meant. He made sure I was comfortable with the surgery and checked in with me a couple days after. He is the best doctor I have had and truly cares for his patients."

  • "Dr Walls is an excellent doctor; professional, knowledgeable, articulate, and meticulous about the care he provides. He made certain I understood what my condition, what it required to heal, and what my responsibilities were in my recovery. I recommend him without any hesitation.."

  • Dr. Walls is a top-notch amazing and caring doctor. I was referred to Dr. Walls earlier this year after my 3rd Achilles surgery started to fail. Needless to say, I was really upset and hopeless. I knew I likely needed another surgery but didn’t want another overly ambitious/eager NYC doctor to agree to immediately cutting me open (for the $$$). While I was frustrated by the pain and inability to do any activity, I appreciated Dr. Walls’ treatment approach. We tried a couple of last ditch efforts to save my Achilles. When those efforts failed, we knew surgery was the right next step.

    Scheduling was a bit of a challenge and I’d recommend for his coordinator to be more proactive and responsive, but this isn’t a reflection of Dr. Walls’ abilities or NYU as a whole. My husband and I continue to be blown away by the surgery experience I had. Dr. Walls and the NYU staff were exceptional (and I can attest because I’ve had a lot of surgeries). The experience was vastly different than HSS which is where I had my previous Achilles surgery.

    I’ve now had 4 Achilles surgeries, which still blows my mind. Dr. Walls is the only doctor who actually took the time before and after the surgery to check in, explain things, and allow me to ask questions. He’s not arrogant or conceited. I’m 5 months post surgery and I have almost no pain. I also recently started running again, which I thought may never happen (I used to be a semi-competitive marathon runner). I’ll probably never be as good as I once was, but the future is promising. I’ll be able to do the activities I love, and that’s what matters.

    I highly recommend Dr. Walls and would encourage you to question any negative reviews posted for him, as they’re simply not true. He’s knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and trustworthy, which is very hard to find these days.

  • "Dr. Walls is by far the most professional, knowledgeable, and caring surgeon I have ever met. I was in pretty bad shape. On day one, I knew it was a perfect match. He diagnosed the situation immediately. He explained in detail and provided a solution showing me visuals so I had a clear understanding. After my surgery HE called (not a nurse) my husband and my dad and explained the surgery to them along with my recovery plan. He is innovative and personable. His staff is simply marvelous!."

  • "Dr. Walls was absolutely one of the most caring and concerned doctor I have ever met. He diagnosed me perfectly and solved all my foot pain that I suffered with for 14 years. He explains everything so that you know exactly what is going on. I highly recommend him and already have done so to anyone I know with a foot problem."

  • Dr Walls is an extremely professional, talented and genuinely caring surgeon. His knowledge and bedside manner are qualities that I found extremely reassuring in my journey to heal a partial plate tear in my foot. He did not try to push surgery but offered options that would help instead. He was very responsive to all my questions and always responded in a timely manner. If you are fortunate to have him as your physician you are quite lucky.
