Not too sure about this MD ..... he didn't ask too many questions about history as much and was not too personable.

very rude and ignorant to childs needs and educating parents on childs well being, cooks childrens is more caring and educated.
Not personable at all. Spent 10 minutes with him, he made little eye contact and spent most of the time with his back turned to me typing notes on the computer. Very disappointed.

Dr. Walker became my PCP in Dec. 2015 when my PCP of 12 years was no longer covered by ins. He immediately questioned and changed the blood pressure medications that worked great for years. I had dizzy spells with the new medicine so he cut the dosage. When I complained of a persistent cough, he told me to stop taking the BP med altogether. I called the office stating a BP of 144/114 and was told to give it a couple of weeks. A week latter still have cough and today a BP of 162/106.

Dr. Walker has been my children's pediatrician for over 10 years and I trust his decision and know that he has my children's best interest at heart. He explains himself very thoroughly. However, due to the beautiful government mandated insurance plans and the fact that my family is self-insured, small business owners, we will not be able to see him any longer since his practice only accepts company based plans. Sadly, our level of care will never compare to the care that my children received.
