A horrible experience in which he performed an unnecessary painful procedure. He is more of a salesman than a doctor. A good salesman. Once he had the authorization from the insurance company he convinced me that I had no options. When the procedure failed he told me that my body probably healed itself. His "work" Left me in months of pain. He should be a vet.

Dr. Wallen is an extremely caring and knowledgeable Podiatrist. I was especially impressed with the group's use and understanding of Cold Laser Therapy, with the newest equipment available. It is too early to tell if the Laser will work for me, but it has helped many others.

I had a upsetting,and horrific experience with Dr. Wallen. I went in to simply get my toenails, clipped, and without any prior notice to me, and without numbing my toes, first, he cut into the two corners of my big toe, which bled. I had yelled, ouch, as he made a first cut, and he disregarded me, and then went on to make a second cut. I was in shock and pain! I am a diabetic, and can so easily be prone to infection. The Dr. knew I was a Diabetic, for I had told him. He is not good to go to!
