Specialties

Dr. John R Walters has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

In front of me he mimicked the crippled gait of a patient he saw before me that was not the first time. His regular front office person in Oxnard is terrible, and I have heard her and other front office staff gossiping about another patient while I was in the waiting room

Very Satisfied

I was having very difficult breathing with a heavy chest. I am an asthmatic and was not sure if I was having lung or hear problems. My regular internist was not working on the day I absolutely needed to see a doctor. I was referred to Dr. Walters and he was able to see me before lunch. He listed very carefully to my issues and determined that I was probably having heart problems not lung. He made a call for me and got me into the Cardiologist of my choice the next day when I could not get an appointment by calling myself. He was very professional and explained every issue and conclusion to be extremely well. Thank you Dr. Walters!!!!

Excellent doctor who spends much more time than the average during an appointment. He clearly explains the treatment and answers questions without making you worry about the time.

My father was seen in the ER by Dr Walters and was completely misdiagnosed and was dictated in his medical record reports as a white diabeteic fall victim who was having trouble breathing and called 911. Which was completely false. He is a hispanic male who is NOT diabetic and did not fall. I called 911 for him.
