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.
