Reedsburg, WI |
I fell fracturing my humerus and having a large full thickness rotator cuff tear. The pain was excruciating. Dr Walter walked in the exam room, shook my hand, and said, " I can see you are in a great deal of pain and we need to do something to make it stop". I had my consult on Monday and he added me on to his schedule on Thursday! I was treated with kindness, compassion and empathy...every single visit, every single time! This doctor is a skilled provider and a remarkable human being!

He messed up on my shoulder surgery the second time he had to go in. I had to go somewhere else to try to fix it and they were not able to. So now i get to live with more pain then i started out with. He was not very helpful or compassionate. He gave up. He also would not admit he messed up. Here is a big thank you to you Dr. Walters!! So 3 years of PT and 3 Shoulder surgeries later the problem is not fixed and can never be. Here is to a life with pain everyday!!
