He had the worst communication skills I have ever seen in a Physician. Talk about basically nothing. I found myself waiting for some sort of point he was going to get to. Only to find out there was none. He talked disrespectful about other providers I had seen in the past. Biggest waste of time and charged my insurance $400.00 for me to sit uncomfortably and listen to what he could have told me in 5 minutes. I will never go back

Dr Walker is phenomenal. I have never had a physician be as pleasant and informative as he is. He has treated me for trigeminal Neuralgia and back pain and has given me my life back.

I would recommend Dr Walker to anyone experiencing chronic pain. I felt hopeless before my first injection but today I fe

Just saw Dr. Walker. He has a great sense of humor, which is helpful in relaxing you, especially when you are having a procedure in his office. He listens carefully and explains the procedure in a way you can understand. He also explains your condition in a way you can understand. And during the procedure, he talks you through it and is good at keeping you calm. He is very professional.
