Dr. Walter Koltun is a god, started out as patient in his study. Dr. Koltun pulls no punches. If you don't want the truth and want everything sugar covered Dr. Koltun. I trust him with my life and would recommend him to anyone....thanks Dr. Koltun for everything. Kelly

My mom's care was terrible. When She was so sick he spoke to her in a nasty tone and adressed her concerns with irritation. He actually yelled at her. He may be a skilled surgeon but make sure he knows you want him not a student intern. My mothers procedure was botched because this happened. Karma...more
