Dr. Walker was willing to spend as much time as I needed to explain my surgery and recovery issues. He is extremely knowledgeable, as well as being an excellent surgeon. Do not hesitate to entrust your needs to this man. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Walker is professional, kind, thourgh, just simply the best hand and wrist Dr. In Hsv! His nurse Rebbeca is also the most professional and kind nurse I've seen in years! Thanks for taking care of my hands!
Dr. Walker was amazing with my daughter! She had a broken arm and I was able to get a same day appt with him. She received excellent care and her arm healed perfectly! He had a great bedside manner and answered our MANY questions. He made me and my nervous 5 year old feel very comfortable. We could not be more pleased with the care Dr. Walker provided. I highly recommend him!!!

I really feel that Dr. Walker cared how miserable I was having had two surgeries to correct damage to my elbow & ligaments & having been in a splint all summer not being able to use my arm or hand for anything. He treated me with the utmost concern even personally taking me over to x-ray with him holding my arm & elbow in place so that it would not move on one occasion. Dr. Walker's staff of Rene', Jeffery & Michelle really worked to keep me in splints & dry. Wonderful team effort!
