What People Say About Dr. Edwin Walker, MD

I received a collections notice from Dr. Edwin Walker's office, despite the fact that I never received a bill. I have A $0 deductible on my health insurance and I pay all of my bills in full. This office never contacted me once regarding this alleged bill. I am going to dispute it or just settle it with the collections company, so Edwin Walker gets nothing or as close to nothing as possible. I've had it with this place. The NP's are rude and condescending, as is Dr. Walker. I came in to his office once, having already been diagnosed with Alopecia Areata by a MUCH better GP who had handled it before with cortisone injections. Dr. Walker was completely clueless, and his only suggestion was for me to lose weight. Go literally anywhere else, if you can. This is the worst facility I've seen in my life.

Dr walked had has been my primary care for several years now. He and his staff has always been friendly and curtious. I work out of town most of the year, so while that could cause issues with scripts are med records for some. Dr walker has always came through in a expedient and professional manner. I'd recommend him to anyone.
