  • "I came 20 mins early and had to wait. Im just an impatient person so I thought waiting 30 extra mins to see the doctor was just horrible, but Dr. Walls was awesome! The actual visit was short and sweet. My eyes are horrible and he didn't make me feel embarrassed about it. Dr. Walls was excellent well worth the wait."
