    Dr. Walton is a very kind, patient, and aggressive (on the ball) Doctor. I needed immediate help with my addiction and psychiatric disorders and since she is extremely knowledgable in today's medications I received the help I needed ASAP. I did a complete 180 after beginning my medications she prescribed and my quality of life is so much better. If you have the opportunity to go to Dr. Walton DO IT!! Lea Staley Lakewood, CA

    Having been in treatment with Dr. Walton for a few years I can say that she is the absolute best therapist I have ever treated with, and there have been a few. Dr. Walton is very compassionate and listens intensely to what I have to say. She automatically knows whether I'm in a good place or not by the time I'm seated in her office. She has been instrumental in my receiving treatment for other medical conditions I suffer from that exacerbate my mental health.
