Dr. Wallace was everything my primary doctor said he would be. He helped me through cancer, surgery and cared for me every step of the way. My primary care doctor said I would love him and I do.

For the last 11 years Dr Wallace has kept me healthy, has taken time to explain, in easy to understand parlance, my case, the pros and cons of performing surgery and now, at age 84 , I hold him in highest regard and TRUST! Whenever the occasion presents itself, of course, I recommend Dr Wallace. Unreservedly he gets 5 stars from me.
Dr Wallace is a wonderful physician who will take time to answer all your questions. Great bedside manner. Excellent surgeon who took on my challenging case and performed it better than expected. He came highly recommended by colleagues.
