What People Say About Dr. Walter Hinshaw, DO

Doctor Hinshaw has been my entire family's doctor for years. He is an awesome doctor and a genuinely good person. He has contributed so much to the city of Garland in his 45 years of practice. My mother was terminally ill and unable to afford her $1,400.00 monthly medication, Dr. Hinshaw hoarded samples for her and never charged her a dime. I called his answering service at 1am the day my mother passed just to leave a brief message to notify him of her passing and instead of waiting util the next business day to reach out, he called me back within a few minutes, He did not complain about the late hour or the fact that he had to work the next morning. He did not rush me off the phone, we talked for an hour reminiscing. I am forever grateful for the amazing care and council he and his colleagues have provided my family over the years. We need not only more doctors like him, but more people like him.... Thank you Dr. Hinshaw.

Dr. Hinshaw and his associates are kind, caring, knowledgeable. Yes there is a wait sometimes because EVERYONE walks in without an appointment and mostly they have neglected themselves to the point of urgent care. He treats everyone and refers to the best for dire situations. Well always come because, it’s definitely worth the care.

The Very Best Dr. Any person could ever have. Mr. Dewayne Hinshaw & Ms. Kitowits are in my opinion are two of the highly experienced & caring Doctors you could ever have. Consider your self lucky if you are a patient of either one of these Great Doctors.
