Dr. Walton is board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Emergency and Critical Care. His special interests include gastrointestinal and respiratory diseases. He enjoys endoscopy, to include GI and bronchoscopy, and has a strong interest in new procedures for thoracoscopic and laparoscopic diagnostics and minimally-invasive interventional procedures.
A retired U.S. Army officer with 20 years of service, at one time Dr. Walton was the staff veterinarian for the White House. He also worked in the military working dog program and medical research and development. Dr. Walton has always loved physiology, and medicine was a natural progression of that interest. He obviously prefers veterinary medicine to human medicine and feels that Will Rogers summed it up best: “The best doctor in the world is a veterinarian. He can’t ask his patients what is the matter; he’s got to just know.”
