Very unhappy with Dr Walkers lack of communication. He doesn't have any people skills and often makes me feel rushed. He needs to reevaluate his career decision. He belongs in a lab, not a family medicine practice

Does not listen to patients. On more than one occasion, has prescribed medications that are clearly listed under allergies in my file. Prescribed medication for an extended period of time, then, due to not providing the refill on time, caused me to have withdrawal symptoms and wound up in the E.R. I've dealt with the rude, condescending attitude, but doctors have a responsibility to treat their patients properly without creating problems for which they are supposed to be treating them.

Does not listen to patients concerns. Spends little time with patients.

I know doctors can be busy but I felt incredibly rushed as if I was a hassle to him. When asked a question I was rushed to answer as quickly as possible to the point I felt uncomfortable. I didn't have time to ask the Doctor a question if I wanted to and in fact I avoided asking any questions to get out as quickly as possible to begin looking for another doctor to see. The nurses were fairly friendly but I will not be seeing Dr. Walker again.
