Patient Comments (17)
Columbus, OH |
I learned more from this guy in 20 minutes than I did from my last 2 sleep doctors over the past 12 years.
Dublin Ohio |
He completely wrote me off. He said that there was nothing more that could be done. I am a fairly well-informed patient and I just KNEW more could be done. I have now switched Drs & there are many things that can be tried. I only wish I had switched earlier!
Grove City, OH |
Really great information that tied it all together. Looking forward to getting this wrapped up so I feel better.
Dr Walter and his staff have been so rude to me that I am seeking another Dr. My sleep disorder has proven to be very difficult to treat and Dr. Walter seems to have lost all patience with me. Every time I need a new prescription for medication, it is an unbelievable ordeal. Most recently I had to wait over 3 weeks to get a prescription!
Reynoldsburg, OH |
Dr Walter has given me excellent care for years. If he is treating every patient the same then every patient must be getting excellent care. I'm in the customer service business and know how some people are not happy no matter what you do. I've gotten a few bad reviews by customers who are either mean people or just want free stuff. I can't speak for others but I think he's great.
Westerville, Ohio |
I agree with Becky G's review. Dr. Walter wants to pigeonhole all of his patients as sleep apnea. If your sleep disorder is something other than sleep apnea, or if it is an unusual sleep disorder, he has little patience with you. He asks how your medication is working, but he is unsympathetic and will not change it if it is not working. I am looking for a new doctor!
Cardington, OH |
Dr. Walter is excellent!! I have been going to him for 14 years. I have narcolepsy and he has helped me to function like a normal person. He listens and gives you an explanation of what is going on in your body. I am definitely a person that needs to know why. I have had problems with prescriptions and getting call backs from the staff. Lots of frustration with staff but I still give 5 stars because I will deal with the frustration to have Dr. Walter as my doctor.
Columbus, OH |
I was doing poorly with my machine and my wife was concerned / going crazy. I needed a sleep study but it turns out that my biggest problem was that I wasn't washing my mask every day. Why didn't my other doctor or the DME person ever tell me this??? Dr Walter really took the time to help me know what to do and boy did that help. Really good. Really wants to help. Really glad I saw him. So is my wife.

Staff impossible to deal with. Dr. Walter wants to treat every sleep disorder EXACTLY the same.
in Columbus, OH |
I have been a patient of Dr. Walter for 15 years. He has helped me a great deal . He has a great office staff and has excellent diagnostic skills. I appreciate knowing that he will be my doctor for several years yet to come. Great sleep study clinic. Ron, Yale Graduate
Reynoldsburg, OH |
Paid attention to me instead of his computer.
Dublin, OH |
Got my study and CPAP machine in time for my surgery. Thanks!
Columbus, OH |
was able to get my new machine before my deductible started over which was grand.
in Grove City, OH |
Dr & office staff almost combative. They do not respond to medication requests on a timely manner.
Columbus, OH |
He knows what he's doing and saw me in follow up to make sure I was doing well. My last sleep doc never even reviewed my sleep tests with me.
Columbus, OH |
Very knowledgable. Focused on my high blood pressure and diabetes and told me how my sleep apnea affects them. My last sleep doctor didn't tell me anything. Lots of information so pay attention.
in Columbus, OH |
Much better than my last sleep doctor.
