Dr. Wall has a level of interest and knowledge in his field that goes beyond just the mechanics of treating a patient for a particular condition. He is very well grounded in the science behind the condition and the recommended treatment;you learn the likely origins of whatever you are being treated for as well as the various treatment options and why he is recommending a particular treatment in your situation. There is no doubt that he is completely current in his field.

I lost my voice due to prolonged strep throat, but if I had a voice, I couldn't thank Dr. Wall enough for being incredibly patient, attentive, and thorough. He checked for any and all possible ailments--and related ailments--to my throat issues.He prescribed helpful medications along with other home-remedy suggestions. I'm grateful he is listed on ZocDoc, as I only had to wait two days to book with him--which is incredibly rare for ENT specialists. I highly recommend Dr. Wall and will gladly book him if future needs warrant such.

His staff is friendly and very accommodating. Dr Wall is no nonsense and takes the time to explain what the symptoms/problems are and how he's going to treat them. i especially like that fact that he doesn't immediately ply you withtons of drugs or surgeries - but prefers to attack whatever the problem is with the basic treatments first.

Dr. Stephen Wall really took the time to explain to me what was happening. When he made prescriptions he was cautious about interaction effects with my other medication. He also was very cautious in giving me the heads up about howmy condition can impact my every day life in the next few days. When I walked away from my appointment I had felt like I had been very carefully listened to/examined and under the best possible care I could have gotten. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Stephen Wall!

This was an all around pleasant experience (aside from the overly expensive parking garage!). I was very pleased with all the staff and the treatment I received. Dr. Wall was incredibly welcoming and seemed to genuinely care about me as apatient. I in no way felt like he was rushing through the appointment, which has been the case with many other doctors I've seen in the area. Would recommend to others for sure.
