About Douglas Walsh, M.D.

Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

I chose GI because it covers a wide variety of diseases and disorders that affect nearly everyone at some point in their lives. This allows me to work with people of all ages and provides both intellectual and technical challenges to improve the lives of my patients.

Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?

I enjoy managing the full spectrum of GI disorders, from colon cancer screening and prevention, IBS, and GERD, to diseases of the liver and pancreas.

Where did you study?

I received my undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University, then went to LSU Medical School in Shreveport, LA. I then completed an Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Virginia, followed by a GI Fellowship at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, part of the Washington University School of Medicine.

What certifications do you hold?

Board Certified in Gastroenterology and Hepatology

What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?

I like to read, take care of my vegetable garden, hunt, and fish. My family enjoys trips to the beach and spending time in the country. Weekends in the fall are all about LSU football.

Do you have any special honors or recognition in your medical career that you would like to share?

Graduated first in class from medical school with a 4.0 average.

My first time going to Dr. Walsh, and I was very impressed. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and they heard me instead of listening to me and understanding what I was feeling.

Dr. Walsh is one of the best in his field! Several of my family members are patients of his and we all have total confidence in his medical expertise. He takes his time during office visits and listens to any concerns you may have regarding gastro issues, while keeping your overall health in mind.
