Dr. Walters was very kind, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I appreciated that he did not talk down to me or minimize my health situation.

Dr. Walters is well known in the RLS Field but is only in Franklin one day a week making it difficult to get an appt.
Patient | February 14, 2017

I felt very comfortable & confident that Dr. Walters would help my condition. He did explain it might take some time to make this situation better.

Dr. Walters is unique in the world for treatment of restless leg syndrome. His reputation precedes him. Everything about his approach and counsel was wonderful. He is simply the best. #9. Best ever. #11. If needed for RLS.

Dr. Walters is excellent.
Patient | September 14, 2016

The doctor takes TOO long w/input into computer. He does not review the chart prior to coming in had his only concern is I take Potassium for leg cramps. Questions me about this every time & does not look at my blood work. I have done very year!
Patient | September 6, 2016

He was not prepared as he had not read my medical file - he took 5-8 minutes reading it while I waited. He showed little concern with my medical issues. He seemed to have little knowledge of drugs available or their side effects as he had to research them first. He had... of questions that seemed little to do with assessing me medical issues and last I spent to 45 minutes waiting for him to type _____ discussion to which I had to repeat many items a second time.
Patient | September 1, 2016

One of the BEST doctors I have ever had to go to.
Patient | August 4, 2016

I researched dr.'s for my condition and was SO glad to find Dr. Walters open to take me as his patient. This last visit, he showed particular care as he walked with me to appointment desk - he spoke with me about being extra careful regarding one of my medications - he showed empathy, also.
Patient | May 27, 2016

Dr. Walters is very thorough & takes adequate time to assess problems/needs. His explanations & instructions are precise & clear. I recommended Dr. Walters to family with RLS after my 1st visit in 12/2015.
