Specialties

Dr. Larry R Walton has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

cyst on arm

after waiting 30+ min, he spent maybe a whole minute looking at a bump on my arm. Was not aware, or didnt care about how painful it was, he said it was a cyst and referred me to a dermatologist because it could be treated without cutting it out (even though, by now, its the size of a grape and very painful) . I told him that other doctors put me on antibiotics and tried to treat it, but he wouldn't listen. He clearly did not want to deal with it!

I went to Walton with classic Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms, and pain in both thumbs. He didn't suggest sending me for Carpal Tunnel testing, so I had to go to another hand surgeon to make the referral. It was positive and I required surgery. Walton took X-rays of both hands & told me there was severe arthritis in both thumbs. However, the other hand surgeon & an orthopedic doctor said it was only mild arthritis. Walton gave me pull on splints for both thumbs (that were very painful to put on & take off, and I was later told by a Physical Therapist that I should never have been given that type of splint.) On top of his incompetence in failing to properly diagnose a common condition, he is not a personable individual. He's arrogant and cocky, and responded to reasonable questions in a mocking tone.
