Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Walker "A hope box is one of the projects Dr Calvin Walker has his patients put together. The hope box is for when you get down, upset and feel alone with no hope. The items in the box are important to the person who put it together. Dr Walker has empty boxes that are waiting to be filled in his office."
