Dr. Walter is AMAZING - I have hundreds of moles and marks on my skin and she looks at every single one - and even remembers where they are from year to year. She is incredibly thorough and I leave knowing that every single thing that needed to be checked has been looked at & analyzed. I recommend her to anyone who asks - if you're lucky enough to get in with her - DO IT!

When I went for my appointment 30 minutes early she froze off 5places on my hand and arms. I pointed to a place and asked what it was a she said cancer. I have had 3 melanomas and she had discovered 2. She did not take a biopsy just left the room. Her assistant came in and gave me my appointment for next April 6 months away I livid that she did not take a biopsy of the place she said was cancer. She sure did have the time as the girl took me back at 2:30 and my appointment was not until 3. Needless to say I will never enter that office again and if anyone wants my opinion of her I will be glad to tell them.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Walter today and I left the office with a Wow impression! Dr. Walter truly impressed me not only with her compassion and genuine concern with every part of my health but also with her thorough knowledge. Seeing Dr. Walter today tied in a lot of health concerns that I have that are related to one another. I wish I had been a patient if hers previously but I’m so thankful to have her as my doctor now. If there was a Dream Team of doctors, she would be on it!

The woman that was working at the front desk the day I visited could not have made for a more miserable experience. She acted as if every single thing annoyed her. If Dr. Walter was not so amazing I would find a different dermatologist just so I wouldn’t have to deal with the front desk. Besides that, Dr. Walter is a wonderful woman and seriously cares about your concerns and wants you to understand the processes behind your skin. Couldn’t find a better dermatologist in the valley!

I have been fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Walter for several years. I have found her knowledge excellent and her explanation of symptoms and treatment to be clear, concise and understandable. Her patience in answering the questions of my wife and I have is also consistently impressive. Her professional demeanor is marked by a stern insistence on taking treatment direction seriously while interacting comfortably and pleasantly. I would recommend Dr. Walter very highly and without reservation.

I wouldn't choose to see another dermatologist. Dr Walter is professional, friendly and caring. I am a retired RN and I can't say anything negative about her or her staff. They are excellent. She was recommended to me and I recommend her frequently.
