Harlingen, TX |
I won't be going back. Stopped going a few years ago and started going to Dr. Campbell. He moved to San Antonio so I tried a dermatologist in Brownsville and they found cancer that needed to be treated. I couldn't afford to go back there so I tried Walther again. Once was enough. Without possibility committing slander all I'll say is I'm not going back for a number of reasons. Any one of which is enough in its own.

Nicest Dr I ever met ... very professional and friendly.

He is the very best Dermatologist I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Dr. Walther exemplifies in his medical practice the highest professional standards, even as he always puts the patient first. - Thank you, Dr. Walther from my heart for all the splendid services and care that you and your staff, especially Mindy, have always rendered. - Geral Sosbee

My whole family (two adults and two small children) have seen Dr Walther. Care and attention to us is superb. He is caring and takes his time with all patients. Appointments generally run on-time - we've never been made to wait very long. Scheduling an appointment can take awhile, as he's very popular.
