I have been seeing Dr Walter for about 2 years. He first treated a fractured shoulder and now attends to an osteoarthritis knee prior to knee replacement. I inherited the arthritis from my dad but also it was degenerated due to my past career as a tennis player and pro. He is congenial, thorough, asks questions and gives me treatment choices. He is really good giving injections, a rather common experience for me after my years in sports with various injuries. I highly recommend Dr Walters.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience, Vickie! We look forward to continuing to work with you and we are pleased to hear that you have been satisfied with our care. We appreciate your feedback and your kind recommendation.

Dr. Walters is incredibly competent and spent plenty of time with me explaining the surgery, post operation procedures and implications of different treatment options. Great staff.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review! It was our pleasure to be able to make your experience as easy as possible. We are so happy to hear that you were satisfied with your experience with our team and we sincerely look forward to seeing you again for future appointments.
