Great Doctor, but had to stop using him because of his staff. They would lie and not call you back. Cancel your appointments with even letting you know. Hard to believe that Dr. Walters allows them to treat long term patients this way. very disappointing. I hate to leave him but have no choice. I waited two months to see him for an urgent matter only to find out they had canceled my appointment over a small unpaid balance without letting me know. then wanted me to wait two more months. 15Yr Pati
