Specialties

Dr. Vickie A Walton has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.

  • Neurology

Careing & Professional

From experience I knew to be on time as Dr. Walton is very punctual. A hallway was a little of a mess and partially blocked due to maintenance but staff was very helpfull & pleasant. Dr. Walton is so personable, careing, & absolutely knows her profession. I had been to Stanford & they admire her, as do I.

disappointed

I love Dr. Walton! I have been seeing her on and off for 10 years, but I needed to be seen recently and made an appointment. I would have to wait two months to see her. I called the day of appointment to confirm because I had not received any call from the office. I was told not to come in because I did not have an appointment! I was devastated. I waited two months only to be told that I was not on the appointment book. Really, like I made that up with a time and date?? The front office is going to ruin her reputation as a five star neurologist. They made another appointment with me and told me they were going to call and "remind me" (like I was the one who had screwed up)two days prior to my appointment. Nope. I never received a phone call and missed that appointment because Rubin did not follow up like he said he would. He specifically told me not to show up until he called to confirm, so I did not go that morning. As I work full-time, I did not call early enough the day before to confirm myself, but I called during lunch on the day I had the appointment to ask what happened to my confirmation phone call by him and he remained quiet. Not a word. Very disappointed in what is happening in her office.
