I have been seeing Dr. Walters since May 2009 when I was told I had a melanoma. Thanks to Dr. Walters I have been cancer free since the removal. He is very thorough and does not take your care lightly. I appreciate him and his staff! I will continue to be a patient at his facility for my skin care needs. Thank you!

I wasn't impressed with the Dr or his helper. I'll have to call my primary Dr for treatment I should have received at a Dermatology clinic
