His bedside manner may not be all warm and fuzzy but he is excellent at what you pay him to do, hand surgery. This is the most important reason to see any physician.

He was condescending and rude. When I explained that I was still in pain, he flat out told me that his 36 years of experience told me I was not. I would never go to him again.
in Kalamazoo, MI |
When asked if other autoimmune conditions would interfer with surgery said no. Poor bedside manner when returned for follow-up hand edematous and in pain. Tech proceeded to tell me what I did wrong and Dr Walton raised his voice saying Listen to me. I thought I was the patient and he needed to listen tie me.

Been a while, but I got the impression that this Dr. Just did not care.
