Background media

“Dr. Walton is very personable and upbeat. Dr. Walton wasted no time in getting my problems diagnosed and explained thoroughly as well as taken care of. I knew it was my allergies, and he even told me about a website he checks every morning and posts the allergy info to his social media page so his patients can be aware of the pollens in the air. I highly recommend Dr. Walton to anyone who has allergies, ear, nose, and throat problems. I also love it that he now comes to Denham Springs. So much easier not to have to fight the city traffic. Thank you, Louisiana ENT Specialists for opening this new office!”
