Dr. Waltonen is superior, by far, to all other ENTs I've seen. He provides straight information, answers questions completely and spends the time required to give you the information you need to make a good decision on your care. His "bedside' manner is superb, puts you at east, concerning his medical proficiency and gives complete info on your options. I travel from Charlotte for his care and will continue to do so.
