Specialties

Dr. David S Walton has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Takes an interest in his patients and doesn't stop trying to diagnose the issue and willingly called other physicians for consultation. A remarkable Doctor and person.

While Dr. Walton was able to diagnose our 4 week old baby's rare disease and we are very appreciative. However we never saw him wash his hands before touching our baby and often his equipment didn't work. Every appointment we had we never knew what to expect and he told us very little about is long term goals. She had surgery which was discovered unnecessary and so while in OR Dr Walton performed injections which we were told about after they were done. If he was thinking it may be something he would do we would have liked to know prior. Also he didn't tell us until a week later that he was planning on these injections every 10 days which would be Surgery every 2 weeks. Absolutely not!! We wouldn't allow it and it was never mentioned again. So was it really necessary.? Again we felt so uninformed. I think because he doesn't have an office manager he has too much going on. Answering the phone during our appointments, etc. handling money then touching our baby. Money is so dirty. We ended up going to another physician.

Exemplary doctor, best pediatric ophthalmologist, compassionate doctor

I have three children with congenital cataracts who are Dr. Walton's patients. I can't say enough good things about him. He is the most skilled physician that I know. He is well respected by his patients, their families, and his colleagues. I know for a fact that without his care for my children, they would have had greater complications and in fact would have lost all vision. He has been a huge blessing to our family.

I started seeing Dr. Walton when I was 5 until I was 12. Dr. Walton performed Strabismus Surgery on me at age 8. I went 10 years without an issue, but once puberty ceased, I started having problems again. I had a surgeon here in RI but he did not measure up to Dr. Waltons high standards. I actually miss him.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Caring, THE VERY BEST

I started seeing Dr. Walton when I was four years old. I am now 30, and still see him for check ups. I could easily go to someone else, as I currently live in NC, but I trust and respect Dr. Walton, and sincerely enjoy visiting him to not only get the best eye care, but to see how he is doing. It is a testament to how much he cares about his patients that after all these years, he still finds time to fit me in his schedule. He is modest, but I have no problem singing his praises as people come from all over the world to see him, and as I mentioned above, he is the very best. The only minor downside is having to wait sometimes. However, I would wait weeks in order to receive the best care for myself and my family. And the only reason you may have to wait is because he spends as much time as necessary to make sure you understand what is going on, and truly cares about each patient. He is not like many dr.'s who simply rush you in and out to fill a quota. I can not say enough about Dr. Walton. He is truly an exceptional human being.
