How likely are you to recommend Dr. Walter?

(Select your rating)
I have been seeing Dr Walter for about 2 years. He first treated a fractured shoulder and now attends to an osteoarthritis knee prior to knee replacement. I inherited the arthritis from my dad but also it was degenerated due to my past career as a tennis player and pro. He is congenial, thorough, asks questions and gives me treatment choices. He is really good giving injections, a rather common experience for me after my years in sports with various injuries. I highly recommend Dr Walters.
