Patient Comments (23)
in Ft Thomas, KY |
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!!!!
in Hebron Ky. |
I have been going to Dr.WALLS for many years and I would not go anywhere else as he has helped manage my pain.
in Carrollton, Ky. |
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.
in Dry Ridge, Kentucky |
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?
in Hillsboro, OH |
Dr. Walls was very knowledgeable and patient. He explained what was causing my pain and answered all my questions regarding ways of treatment and resolution of the problem.
in Williamstown, KY. |
Dr. Walls is a man interested in how you feel, and the best way to treat you to get you back to yourself. He actually listens to what you have to say. He is very thorough, and sincere. He dedicates his work to better his patients.

Dr. Walls has a very cordial and forthright approach to pain management and effectively works in collaboration with the patient (myself) to evaluate the extent of injury and the treatment(s) for pain that will best fit my lifestyle and my specific condition. I appreciate the opportunity to actively interact and participate in my own treatment.

Dr Walls and the entire staff have been AMAZING!!! I would highly recommend this practice to family, friends and even strangers. I finally can get back to my normal activities after 15 months of setbacks and other physicians not listening to me. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Patti
in Owenton ky |
awesome Dr.really listens and is very helpful.
in Alexandria KY |
Dr. Walls listens to you, He will do the proper treatment for you. The only problem that I have is that Workers compensation does not want him to do anything but give more pills, which upsets both of us.
in Crittenden, Ky |
I love Dr. Walls and the entire office. They are kind and treat me well. They have done well by me.
in Florence, KY |
I have been seeing Dr. Walls for several years. He is very understanding of your health issues and involves you in your treatment plan. One thing I really appreciate is that he does not over-prescribe, but does what is necessary for your pain relief. He is honest and talks to you about your issues. His staff is always friendly and willing to help out. I would recommend him to anyone .
Cincinnati, OH |
I am a physician and I chose to see Dr. Walls as a patient. He treated me with expertise, compassion, and a pleasant staff. A great experience.
in Latonia, KY |
I like the fact that Dr Walls is conscious of the patient's time limits; I have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes in the other or inner office. His staff is pleasant and friendly. Dr Walls is quiet but personable; he is pro-active but doesn't prescribe medication unless warranted. I find him to be through and informative.
Ft. Wright, KY |
Dr. Walls is a doctor I would recommend. He is honest and will not prescribe unnecessary medicine or expensive treatment options unless needed. The office staff are professional and courteous. You will be seen promptly and not spend hours in the waiting room. If you want a doctor who is knowledgeable and will give you the best treatment for your condition, visit Dr. Walls.
Covington, KY |
Caring, compassionate. Helped me with my pain
in Florence, KY |
Would not recommend. Staff is very rude and say things that are not true. Walls is a terrible Dr that doesn't listen to the patient.
