Dr. Walton & staff are excellent! Very professional, detailed & friendly - they truly care about your wellbeing & make sure that you are fully informed at all times. I recently had Lasik eye surgery performed by Dr. Walton & I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Consultation, pre-operation, operation & post-operation Dr. Walton & staff were flawless - I could not have possibly asked for a better experience! Absolutely the best in town & the best in business

Dr. Walton takes time to explain things with you. He is friendly and you can tell he cares. His nurses are helpful and show they care as well. My previous eye doctor retired and I wanted to find a young and good one. I'm with Dr. Walton now for the duration.

He is an excellent physician. He really explains everything and makes you feel comfortable. Anytime you are dealing with your eyes it’s good to get reassurance about exactly what’s happening.

Dr. Walton and staff are very professional. They were very reassuring and answered all of my questions regarding my refractive surgery. I did not experience any discomfort during or after my procedure. Their follow-up was equally professional.

Dr. Walton and his staff was very professional. Any questions or concerns that I had concerning my cataract surgery was explained to me and that made me feel comfortable doing the surgery. I have told my family that I am glad I went to Dr. Walton.

His care was distracted and negligent. My impression is he is only in this for the money. Choose someone else.
