Never get to actually talk to him. I've been to see him three times, but only got to see Lois. Lois is great, but never got answers to my problems. The only times Dr. Walker ever talked to me was while I was stoned/drugged before or after two colonoscopies. There was NO follow-through.

Dr. Walker says very little and explains even less. His communication skills are extremely lacking. I felt extremely uncomfortable with his demeanor.
