Professional Statement

As a family physician, I enjoy establishing long-term relationships with my patients. I provide high quality health care to men, women, and children of all ages, including prenatal care and vaginal deliveries for pregnant women. I strive to be a compassionate doctor, who makes my patients feel comfortable and respected and who gives them the time they need to discuss their questions and concerns. I am board certified in family medicine and also am a faculty member in the Department of Family Medicine Residency Program at St. Joseph Hospital. If you are or plan to become pregnant, there are a number of reasons why you will benefit from seeing a family physician such as myself for your prenatal care! We practice Family Centered Maternity Care, which means that we can take care of mom and dad before the pregnancy, then parents and baby during and after the pregnancy. Instead of making multiple appointments at different offices, the whole family can be seen by me for all of their health care needs for many years to come!

She was great! Office wait time was horrible. Would have appreciated some heads up on why it was going to take so long.

Dr. Wally was very friendly and checked me quite thoroughly to make sure she wasn't missing anything. She listened to everything I had to say and seemed to spend good time to analyze everything without skipping any step. I'm just disappointed she's not closer to where I live. I don't have any complaints about Dr.Wally, but I do about Zocdoc - reception (lack of communication or response between the online patient information) which I will address separately.

Even after leaving the waiting room and going into an exam room, the wait to see the doctor is long. But, Dr. Wally has such a polite, friendly, and approachable bedside manner so even with the long wait times, it is worth my yearly wellness visit for how professional and nice of a doctor she is.

Dr. Wally is wonderful! She takes great notes and really listens to you when you're telling her how you're doing and why your visiting. She also offers great suggestions and comes up with an efficient course of action. Time well spent! The office is pretty cool too--too bad I didn't have to wait and get to play with the handy charging station for your electronics. They even offer free guest WiFi so I could keep up with my email and not miss that much work.

This was my first visit with Dr. Wally and I was so impressed. She was warm and welcoming and I felt like I had known her a very long time. She was thorough and answered all of my questions. I have had the same doctor for almost 20 years, and going to a new doctor was something I was nervous about. Dr. Wally made this a painless transition.

I needed a new doctor and Dr. Wally had excellent reviews so I thought I would give it a try! Excellent location, close to public transportation and parking lot too. The place looks kind of "meh" on the inside but it's just an outdated design. Dr. Wally was pleasant and friendly from the start and was thorough in her exam. She talked to me about options and was extremely professional. I'll definitely be coming back to Dr. Wally!

I really liked Doctor Wally overall... very kind and answered all of my questions, though when she exited I thought she'd be coming back to go over everything and instead a nurse did. Then I found out that most of the things that we discussed in the appt needed to be done elsewhere as those services were not offered at that office. That was a little confusing to me and I probably wont be going back to that office because it was pointless for the most part :(

Dr Wally and the entire staff are wonderful folks that take great care of you and are able to help you get in and determine a great course of treatment. Love the phlebotomist--she's a 1-shot technician who knows her stuff and doesn't bruise you. So wonderful--much to be thankful for here!

Dr. Wally is fantastic. She is professional, comforting, and knowledgeable. Even under the most stressful of circumstances, Dr. Wally and her nursing staff were able to help me calm down- a nurse even stood by my bedside and held my hand during a procedure! Dr. Wally exhibits compassion and care for her patients with such a natural ease that I sometimes forget that I have only been a patient of Dr. Wally for a few months.

Overall, the clinic is great and Dr. Wally is friendly and has excellent beside manner. However, the wait time between seeing the medical assistant for vitals and seeing the doctor for the appointment has been 30-45 minutes the past two times I have visited the clinic. I don't particularly enjoy sitting in an exam room for that length of time, twiddling my thumbs.

The doctor was great, however, the lobby had an off putting odor and the wait time was a little long - both to be called in and while waiting to see the physician.

The actual appointment was quick and the doctor's beside manner was excellent. But, the wait until I actually saw the doctor was ridiculous; I was waiting in an exam room for over 50 minutes before the doctor came in and during that entire time no one came in (doctor or nurse) to tell me what the hold up was.

Overall great experience! The nurses were very helpful, and very nice. I had an early morning appointment and arrived well before my scheduled time. Although not all the staff was in and ready for my visit, people were very helpful to move me right along. Dr. Wally was so helpful. As a recent grad, I am still adjusting to my own insurance rules & limitations. She was able to fill the need of multiple doctors I was used to seeing. Made things a lot smoother!
