Patient Testimonials

Dr. Walrath is an amazing doctor. Not only is he friendly and courteous, he also informs you every step of the way. He and his staff are very patient. They understand the anxiety that comes with surgery, and they accommodate you. I went to Dr. Walrath for eye surgery needed due to a rare genetic disease, and he was knowledgeable about it, although I had met with several other doctors who were unaware of the disease. Several of my relatives and family have had similar eye surgery, and I can say with 100% accuracy that they did not have similar results. They did not have the outcome that comes only with a very skilled surgeon that Dr. Walrath can achieve, and in some of their cases, there was almost no change at all in their eyesight or appearance. In my case, the results have been amazing. If you are looking for the best, you have found him. He is Dr Walrath. – Yvonne Pysh

Unbelievable! Dr. Walrath is an incredible surgeon! He has the complete package of surgical expertise and bedside manner. Trust is the very foundation of Dr. Walrath’s practice! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Walrath! I work in healthcare and did quite a bit of research on my choice of surgeon. Dr. Walrath worked on my upper and lower eyelids and corrected/balanced the tendons in my eyes! What a phenomenal work of art. I feel and look so much younger and my field of vision is great. There are not enough accolades to describe Dr. Walrath and his expertise. I can only say you will not be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Walrath!!!
First I’d like to say how amazing Dr Walrath and his staff are both professionally and personally!! After close to a decade being told by my optician I needed a blepharoplasty for sagging eyelids obstructing my vision, I finally had one and cannot believe how much better I can see!! I should have done it years ago. Dr Walrath did an amazing job on my surgery I highly recommend him for any eye needs!!

Dr. Wallach raised my eye lids for me. From day one I loved the way he explained the procedure, he walked me through the process as well as, the after care. I was very surprised that the doctor himself called me the day after to check my condition. I would 💯 recommend him for your eye care.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Walrath. After a basketball injury resulted in a lower orbital blowout fracture, I was understandably concerned. However, Dr. Walrath’s honesty about the risks of the surgery put me at ease.Throughout the entire process, he demonstrated exceptional skill and professionalism. I’m thrilled to report that I had zero issues or complications after the surgery.I can’t recommend Dr. Walrath enough for his expertise, transparency, and the excellent outcome of my eye surgery. Thank you, Dr. Walrath, for your outstanding care!

Believe every positive review you read as Dr Walrath is every bit what folks rave about! I was more than a little worried about someone cutting on my eyes but the final result was so natural looking ! I am thrilled with the results and wish I had done this procedure years ago. If you are on the fence about doctors, stop the search process and book an appointment with this highly skilled doctor.

thank you!!thank you!!!thank you!!!!I was born with “congenital ptosis”in one eye.If you were born with this condition than you already know how hard it was growing up having to explain this condition to each and every person you meet because it’s right there on your face for the world to see.Thanks to dr “Joseph D walrath” I can finally look everybody I meet right in there eyes without having to feel insecure or having to explain why my eyes look the way they do.I will 100% recommend dr walrath to any one looking for a doctor who specializes in not just ptosis but also “Congenital ptosis” which takes completely different approach.
My upper blepharoplasty surgery + under-eye laser treatment was quick and relatively painless. Dr. Walrath and his staff gave clear and detailed guidance from beginning to end. The healing process was also painless but be prepared to wear sunglasses for 3-4 weeks post surgery. I am very happy with my results!

I met with Dr. Walwrath to address my upper eyelid problem. I’m 67 and for possibly a decade one eyelid has been getting lower and lower, while the other was receding and rising. He identified the issue, which was a little more than just aging, but included a tendon issue. I also asked if there was anything to do for the fat deposits under my eyes. He thoroughly explained the issues, the risks, the surgery and the recovery at the first visit. Surgery was in early June. The staff and the atmosphere at the surgery center was very gentle and patient-oriented. The Dr chatted with me during the upper lid procedure, determined we were ready for the second stage, which involved a general anesthesia, and I woke up in recovery. I followed the post-op directions to a T, and as he predicted, I needed only Tylenol for pain management. The laser surgery for the skin under my eyes was more of a discomfort than the stitches in my eyelids. I’m 6 weeks out now, and am thrilled with the results. Stitches are fading, and the symmetry of my eyes is perfect. I am so glad I had this done, and would recommend Dr. Walwrath to anyone needing opthamalogic and cosmetic work.

My eyelid surgery could not have gone better. There was no pain during the short operation or after I returned home. I had moderate swelling and bruising for a few days but much less than I expected. Most people didn't even realize I had just had surgery. And now that I'm no longer looking through my eyelashes everything is so much brighter!

Thank you, Dr. Walwrath and team, for the amazing job you did to help my eyesight with ptosis/blepharoplasty surgery! Angelica is the best and made surgery scheduling so easy. She patiently answered all of my questions, discussed insurance coverage, and made sure I was comfortable with the date/time. The entire staff at the surgery center was absolutely wonderful and provided excellent care! And… I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Walwrath during the consultation, the surgery, and the follow up I had today. This surgery and this staff have been such a huge blessing! Thank you, again, to you all! ♥️

Fantastic surgeon and team. Can’t say enough great things about him. Fixed some longstanding problems related to childhood athletic injuries that were not totally corrected by earlier surgeries. I know it sounds hard to believe, but my vision improved and it resulted in a lower golf score, especially in putting. No hassles, no surprises, except for the great outcome. Really a specialist!

Dr Walrath has a way of putting his patients at ease with humor and confidence. My eye lift surgery was necessary due to experiencing vision problems, so it was covered by Medicare. He, along with his staff, was reassuring and efficient throughout the entire procedure. He put me at ease from the first visit through the 3-month follow-up visit. I highly recommend and confidently trust Dr Walrath. You can, too!

Before deciding on a doctor to perform upper and lower blepharoplasty, I had done so much research. I live in the middle GA area, and my insurance inquired why I would go 2 hours away to get the surgery. This surgery is so important because this is your face (eyes). Dr. Walrath is amazing! I am so happy with the results. I was very nervous, but Dr. Walrath answered all my weird questions that I had even before the surgery date. I would recommend him 100%. When you are getting blepharoplasty, you want to make sure it's a doctor that knows EYES, not just a regular plastic surgeon that might give you a facelift

Repaired eye after cancer surgery. All looks good now.
No! Don’t!Thought I’d found help for my Ptosis but received was a botched surgery that left me so incredibly regretful.I was his second to last of the day. When he woke me during surgery to check for symmetry, making comments to his nurses about needing coffee.Didn’t get back to my hotel post surgery until 7:00pm..that was 7hrs I had spent in the surgery facility.My left eye was pulled so tightly I couldn’t close it. It was yanked; lumps and indented creases followed both lash lines and barely any skin for my lids.Not only did I pay $5,000 + but my insurance was also used.6 months later; a revision from a surgeon on my left eye to enable closure and some normalcy in appearance.She did a fabulous job! My eye closes and the stitches and scarring look so much better on the left eye.I had so hoped with all the wonderful reviews, I’d came to a great doc.My experience was nothing like the reviews sadly with Dr. Walrath less than assuring, even demeaning in his manner. In the follow up, he used somewhat of a baby talk and patted my shoulder and said something like “Oh honey it’s only temporary” instead of a reasonable explanation and plan.I wanted to know what happened and the ways to address it.Tried to allow for a revision but not from a doctor like this.Now, I’m seeing yet another surgeon; a specialist who repairs botched eye surgeries. This isn’t what I signed up for.Be wary!I feel so sad because the eyes speak for us. It affects me. I can get this fixed and but you PLEASE take heed.Just do more research and take care to find a surgeon who looks at you and takes their time.Find one who doesn’t make wise cracking jokes instead of answering questions.Look for less ego, more concern.P.S After all the money I spent and BC/BS paid I was told to buy his $50 ointment.This ointment touted for scarring actually made it worse! Afterwards, with much looking, very few surgeons recommend this stuff until after you’ve healed.You can compare the scars in the picture below. One healed with, one healed without ointment.Wishing you all the best.3rd photo: Prior to revision surgery. Wish the man would take less patients and using more patience.1st photo: There’s a reddish horizontal indention, parallel to my lash line on the unrevised eye lid. And a slight one on my revised eyelid.
