    Dr. Walker is rude and her staff is the same. She spends very little time in the exam room and always acts like she is swamped. She does not listen to your symptoms and does nothing to help or treat you. I just thought the first time she and her staff were having an off day, but because of where I live and the limited number of medical practioners, I went back and had the same awful experience. The last time I left had to make a long drive to an urgent care facility, after which I felt better.
