Austin, TX |
I am not thrilled with the lack of communication by Dr Walkes and her staff. It takes an act of congress to get through the phone system to leave a message, and rarely do I ever get calls back. The lobby of the building looks like a Section 8 waiting room. The back/treatment area is much better. Staff are friendly, admittedly I have only taken family members in so haven't seen the dr at work. You will wait, sometimes, 1-2 hours to be seen.

She's a compassionate and dedicated doctor. Every time I come in with an issue, Dr. Walkes completely puts me at ease and offers straight forward solutions. Wait times can sometimes be a hassle, but she's totally worth the wait!
