What People Say About Dr. Calvin Walker, MD

Dr. Walker misdiagnosed my wife as bi-polar. He then prescribed multiple drugs that caused her to have a series of psychotic breaks. Even after being told what was happening, he insisted that his diagnosis was correct. She now sees a different psychologist and is being successfully treated for uni-polar depression with a single medication. Dr. Walker's incompetence nearly drove my wife to suicide.

Completely incompetent, Warning do not use this Dr. he has no concern for the wellbeing of new patients. I was looking for simple continuity of care and this dR would not prescribe any of the medications I have taken for 7-10 years, in so doing leaving me in a place where i would run out of my medication and if that happened as happened in the past i would suffer seizures and possibly death. He uses a website and only Doctors as that website indicates. He also insulted me repetitively
