Dr. Walters is always pleasant, concerned and thorough in his evaluations of me. He keeps tabs on my overall health as well as my cardio-health. I enjoy his dry wit, although I realize it is not for everyone.

Michael Manigo – May 13, 2021
I have finished the review of my last visit (3/31/21). I read the enclosed survey about my care. I would like to correct some information . In 1983 I had a coronary artery thrombosis and was treated medically in North West Hospital. Subsequently I came under the care of Dr. Walters and all follow up visits were with him till the present time. I have not had any surgical intervention in my cardiac care . In November 2017, I had a cardioversion procedure at North West Hospital as an outpatient. The cardiocare of Dr. Walters during all these years was excellent.
