Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Walter Combs had never seen my husband and when he came in he decided on HIS plan for MY HUSBAND WITHOUT consulting MY HUSBAND. We had to see him 1 more time before he could see another doctor. We went in and he sent in 2 training doctors and even though WE had MANY complaints about HIS plan, he instructed the TRAINING doctors to continue HIS plan again without consulting the PATIENT. PLEASE if you want a doctor that TRULY cares about their patients go to his brother Dr. Curtiss Combs.

Dr. Combs was an hour late to my appointment. An hour! No one explained to me he would be so late and I sat in the patient waiting room. When he arrived he apologized shortly and said he was at a funeral. He seems like a genuinely nice man, but he is not open to other options rather than prescribing medicines. My husband is a PharmD and was also his patient. We both fired him because of our negative experiences.

My family and I have been seeing Dr.Combs for over 20 years. I trust him! He never hesitates to delve as deep as necessary to find out what is causing a problem. He really knows his stuff and stays up on the most current medical practices and information. He has a great bedside manner and is friendly and compassionate. Great doctor!
