Dr. Walton has always been knowledgeable and kind every visit. I first came to the office for ear wax build up and mentioned sinus infections being normal for me. He assessed my nose and determined I had a severely deviated septum. He performed my surgery and him and his nurse were very attentive to my questions in the time after.

Dr Walton is amazing!! He is thorough and explains everything so you understand. I had another ENT totally screw up a surgery on my sphenoid sinus and Dr Walton went in and corrected the issue and took care of the nasty infection that resulted in 6 weeks of IV antibiotics. I would recommend Dr. Walton to everyone! He is the #1 ENT to go to in KC!!

Dr. Walton performed sinus surgery, septoplasty, and polyp removal on me in Nov 2016 (6 month ago). I had been suffering from chronic sinusitis for many years dealing with headaches and infection. I also did not have sense of smell and I was not able to breath through my nose. I am completely satisfied with the result of surgery. I no longer have sinusitis, can breath through my nose, and my sense of smell is back. I highly recommend him. He is a great surgeon with great personality.

Dr. Walton has successfully treated my wife and me for chronic sinus conditions that have plagued us for years. He performed difficult surgery on each of us and I we thank him immensely for his determination to resolve the sinus issues. Both of our lives have been impacted positively by his care. I have never in my life been so happy to take a deep unrestricted breath of fresh air. My quality of life as related to breathing has never been better, since being treated by Dr. Walton.

After my referral, I was seen and diagnosed quickly. CT scan showed sinus blockage among other issues. Unfortunately, I was not normal at all and developed MRSA (among other bacteria) in my sinuses about two months after my surgery, not sure if it was from that surgery or the ER visit for massive bleeding (not normal). Going on 9 months and Dr. has not given up on getting me healed whereas 2 infectious disease,1 allergy, and 2 dermatologists have said they can't help me. Love Dr. Walton!
