Patient Comments (1)
in Lake Arrowhead, CA |
When I was in extreme pain from esophageal spasms - and everyone else thought I was having a heart attack - Dr. Walter was cool, calm, collected, kind, and professional. I believe that kindness in medicine is equally important as clinical skill. Dr. Walter was able to relieve those horrible symptoms with a prescription that worked, literally, within a couple of minutes. He has managed to combine a perfect bedside manner with professional skill and for that I will be forever grateful.
