I really enjoyed my appointment with this doctor. He was direct, easy to understand and even a little funny! That's always nice at a potentially scary appointment with a specialist. I would have no hesitations recommending him to family or friends. His clinic was nice as well. Overall it was a great experience.

He came highly recommended to me for cancer surgery. Easy to talk to, and I had no problem understanding his explanations. Answered all my questions in a way I could understand and was very forthright - no beating around the bush.

Dr. Waltonen was the surgeon to treat my tongue cancer with surgery 1 year ago (January, 2016) and he was extremely clear in his explanations and took time to explain the procedure and the ramifications. He has followed up with me since then and following radiation. I recommend him and Wake Forest even though I live a few hours away. In fact I encouraged my neighbor to go there for her cancer and she did (another doctor, but same Cancer center).
