Surgeon Thomas Walsh, M.D.
Cornerstone Surgery, High Point, NC
The diagnosis of cancer changes your life in the blink of an eye — not just for you the patient but for your family and friends as well. This is something I understood long before I decided to become an oncologist. I learned it firsthand when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was in medical school.
A surgeon like Dr. Thomas Walsh is often the first person to tell a patient he or she has cancer. Dr. Walsh wants to help patients understand the first step in this journey and the terms and tests that are suddenly added to your medical vocabulary as well as the team of physicians who help you battle this disease. Dr. Walsh also understands cancer from the patient’s point of view because he is a cancer survivor himself.
