1. Doctor came to Liberty Hill about hour late for what I thought was a COURTESY exam about cataract surgery. Exam produced EXACT info from our regular eye doctor and lasted about 5 minutes per eye. 2. Told cost estimate would be about $1300 per eye plus any deduct/copays. 3. Asked his office for detailed estimate of my expenses since I was moving from private to Medicare insurance. No one ever responded after a 2nd attempt to get information. 4. Billed $200 dollars for nothing! No trust.

I had a rare eye disease. The cells of my cornea would tear off leaving holes in my eyes. Dr. Walters successfully treated this through surgery that involved removing my corneas. He also did cataract surgery for my wife and her mother. We were all pleased with his service.
