He operated on my husband while it was infected! The infection got on his hardware Dr Walton put in and had to go threw 3 more unnecessary surgeries cause Dr Walton did not get rid of information first! It took my husband over 2yrs of fighting the infection being back in hospital off and on. While I was left juggling that and a 4yr old while pregnant! The emotional and physical stress was on all of us and could have all Ben prevented in the first place!

I can't express how greatful I am for everything Dr. Walton & his staff have done for me so far. I was hit by a drunk driver on December 18th,2015 that left me with severe injuries to my right leg/foot,my left arm, 4 broken ribs and staples in my head. I've had two surgeries so far(Dec 19 & Jan 4th) and I can say that I knew after meeting him n Matt that I was in good hands. I still have a long road ahead of me,but it's a little less scary knowing I have Dr. B,Matt & his staff caring for me.
