Would not recommend. Staff is very rude. Walls did nothing for me. After surgery Walls told me that I shouldn't need any medicine because the surgery should've fixed my problem. I wouldn't recommend him or his staff to my worst enemy!!!!

I have seen dr. Walls for a number of years and have been very pleased with his care from day one. He has always taken time to listen to every thing that I feel. He takes his time and never made me feel that I was just a number. I had to have an epideral once and he was very gentle.

Everyone in the office is very friendly and outgoing. They are truly there to help you with all of your needs. It is a very professional and clean office. We never have to wait. Actually, we even get in early. Where can you go to a doctors office and do that?
