Dr. Walthour is very thorough in his explanation of conditions and options. He goes into surgery only if it's the best option. As a surgeon he is a perfectionist. He is friendly as well as professional and his staff is top notch!

My son who is 12 years old and autistic visited the doctor 2 weeks ago to deal with some small motor skill issues with his hands. The doctor seemed knowledgeable and efficient at the time, and said he would follow up within 48 hours. However, 2 weeks later I am still playing phone tag with Sutter and have yet to hear back from the doctor personally with any treatment plan. I would not recommend this doctor.
in Merced, CA |
I just wanted to say that Dr. Walthour is by far the best doctor that I have encountered over my years both working as a nurse and having him as my doctor. He has a fantastic bedside manner and he is very thorough when he explains your issue with you. He gives you a couple different options so that you can be a part of deciding what you would like to have done to fix your problem. He is a great surgeon. I had a meniscus tear that completely was torn away. He fixed it perfect!
