I knew I had to have my foot done. For the last two weeks I could barely walk without pain. Within the last five years I had been looking for a doctor that I could trust. I was so afraid to go through this procedure of having a bunion removed, for some people encouraged me while others including two podiatrists discouraged me. Until I met Dr. Daniel Walters. That same day when had my first interview with him, I made the decision to go ahead. Now I'm in the healing process. I recommend him totally. Don't be afraid!.
Dr. Walters listens and asks a lot of pertinent questions to understand any problems or Issues. I believe this really helps in determining a treatment plan.
Enjoyed the visit at Dr. Walters. He's very knowledgeable and explains things throughly. Provided us with treatment options and simply a pleasant experience. Highly recommend him.
Excellent doctor and staff! Short wait time and convenient scheduling either over the phone or online!
Nice person , and he cares.
