Patient Comments (4)
Ashland, OR |
Dr. Walker was thorough and extremely knowledgable. He answered my questions, personally called me in the early evening (after what was I am sure a long day) to give me results on biopsies and answered more of my questions. When I shared with him that I had had a positive experience (amazingly) with my colonoscopy he gave all the credit to the nurses. I greatly appreciated the time, concern and attention he gave me. Great doctor! Grateful I got him!
I do think he is thorough when doing his job. Which is the most important thing. But it is true he really doesn't speak much and is very quick and to the point when he does and then he is gone. 3rd visit with this provider over the last 10 years and still the same communication style as before. All of the nurses and office staff would get 5 stars.

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.
