in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr Walker truly cares about his patients, spends plenty of time with me at every visit and listens to my concerns... and doesn't dismiss my feelings.
in Phoenix, AZ |
The procedure was done in a very efficient manner and the doctor and staff really care about the patient's health and his/her comfort. Excellent anesthesia; I didn't notice anything afterwards in terms of cognitive weakness.
