Heidi Walz, MD

Emergency Medicine
I enjoy taking care of patients of all ages and from all backgrounds.


This provider is an independent provider, not an employee of North Memorial Health, who practices/provides services at some North Memorial Health locations.

Approach To Care

Dr. Walz has a passion for emergency medicine with care that ranges from chronic, ongoing medical issues to a new injury or illness. Many times, she meets people on the worst day of their life, when they are in pain or feeling lonely or vulnerable. As an emergency medicine physician, she goes beyond textbook medicine, spending extra time at the bedside working to truly learn why the patient is seeking emergency care.
