Staff mirror image of organized crime. Totality reigns, to hell with civil rights, and minimal care. I am a blind disabled american, what a kick in the balls with that bunch, but they can answer to federal law. Dr. Walker acts like he is torn between profit and performance, more lying. He tried to sell me extensive bi-lateral knee replacement surgery. claiming relief, yet no imaging, odd? I secured imaging on my own, it turns out that my problem in my right knee is scar tissue on the parameter of the patella a two hour procedure. Walker wanted to destroy the rest of my life in lieu of putting cash in his pockets. If he senses that you are not buying into his cult like approach you are out. I let him put a knife to my body one time circa 2016, have been in pain from that point forward. In addition to the above there has been a deletion of my files, and my medication regimen. If you are smart you will run from this man, avoid years of suffering. there is hope refer to HHS/OCR.

Called Lake Orthopedic due to a fractured wrist and wad assigned to Dr Walker. He was quick to diagnose and said come back in 2 weeks to set. Did he even look at my x-rays? Never referred me to a specialist until it was too late. Now my wrist is permanently damaged due to his negligence.

Ed Foley in Concord Twp. ohio – Dec 18, 2017
Its been 2 yrs ago or so i had both right and left total hip replacement surgeries performed by* Dr Walker. I cannot say enough good things about Dr Walker and his Madison staff. There is not one thing i would change in the experience i had. I suffered from Vascular Necros and my hips were severely damaged. Now i hike and bike for miles.. 0 complications 100% thrilled with the outcome. The only way I even know i had surgery is the total lack of discomfort i now enjoy.
