Practicing Obstetrics and Gynecology in the St. Louis community since 1982, Dr. Barbara Walsh has taken care of more than 15,000 patients and delivered over 5,000 babies. Dr. Barbara Walsh is well known for her caring personality and unwavering devotion to patients.

Since 1995 when she saw her first delivery, Dr. Allison Walsh has felt the lure to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Now, Dr. Allison Walsh is excited to finally be working together with her mother to care for the women of St. Louis across generations!
Excerpt Medical School Personal Statement:
“I must confess at the outset: I come with “medical baggage” - portable and stylish, yet functional and durable. I speak not of medical fashion, but of my childhood as the daughter of a dedicated OB/GYN…. I often asked my mother to walk rounds with her on Saturdays. I would watch her interact with patients.... The intimacy of the relationships I observed appealed to me; it helped me understand the holistic scope of clinical medicine. I found myself wanting to generate the same reaction from people in need – to ease their pain, to share their burdens, to participate in the magic and mania that is medicine.”
