I don't like to think wrong of anyone but people should know certain things to make informed decisions about their care. I was referred to Dr. Walker due to a lump on my leg. He treated me, performing a surgical procedure to install a drain and did a biopsy even. All the while he called this lump a "hematoma". After a couple of months I was in such pain I drove myself to the ER. It was then found I had a stage 3 cancerous tumor. I have suffered much since then but thankful to God to be alive.

I had a breast biopsy this past summer and had a complication - not Dr. Walker's fault. He was awesome in that he treated me with courtsey and respect. He dealt with the complication and all is certainly well. Excellent surgeon, kind and empathetic, great staff! I'd recommend him to anyone.

I had a cholecystectomy performed by Dr. Walker in July 2016. He is a very honest, knowledgeable surgeon who will certainly not perform an unnecessary procedure. He is patient and was very diligent with answering any questions that I had. Most importantly, he was very explicit regarding the risks of my surgery and made me feel I was in safe hands.

Of all the Dr.'s I have been to, Dr. Walker is heads above anyone else. His staff, his bedside manner, his surgical skills are heads above anyone else. He makes you feel at ease and explains in detail what he is going to do and makes sure you understand. Again, by far the greatest doctor I have been to.
