I have followed this guy all over the state of Nevada because he is the best doctor in the state of Nevada.

I just love Dr. Walters and the staff! He is knowledgeable and doesn't talk down to you. Genuinely listens and cares. And the staff? Always kind and friendly. I always recommend this Dr to all my friends and family. Brenda and Lorena are always nice and professional. Even waived a fee for me when I had an emergency and couldn't get in to the office. Lorena even gave me a protein bar when my blood sugar was low. Great people!

Terrible doctor very rude when i asked for blood work to test for a gene that runs in my family and tried to tell me i know nothing about it even though ive spoken to the specialists about it and then also wanted to test me for other things that's I have no symptoms of and don't run in my family and hard to hear because he mumbles.. won't be going back ever.. sorry..
There is no patient named Nicole matching this description . Dr. has never been rude to any patients. Nicole has posted these comments on several sites. Could be mother of an adult patient with a rare dominant genetic disorder found in 1:20,000. Mother wanted a 1,000 per test ordered to see if daughter, with no evidence of dominant gene, with no first degree (immediate) relatives with dominant trait, really has a non expressed, dominant gene. Tests ordered, mother discarded them.

Hi I've tried them a now I found the best! If your dr isn't getting it right go to Dr. WAlters not only does he listen he then tells you exactly what the problem is. He is a blessing to Nevada. After fifty yrs . there is a Dr. that cares for you . I've tried them all I thought I would have to move but Doctor Walters figured out what and where my pain was from I feel like a new person - do yourself a favor give him a try.
