Dr Walters is a very friendly nice man and a good doctor. Made me feel very much at ease, detailed diagnosis in detail in easy to understand language & drawings. Both visits resulted in removal of a benign keratosis with liquid nitrogen. He explained how to take care of the areas in the 3 weeks it would take to gradually slough off. One developed a Huge blister, he was easy to reach & told me what to do for it. Wonderful man & doctor. I wish I could have him take care of all my medical problems!
