Dr walker seems to care about his people, but he does forget to read their files and what type of meds they take. Be aware of this before making appointment for surgery. When dealing with his staff, they are horrible. They don't seem to give a crap about finding out the right insurance...more

Recommended surgery when not needed...highly unprofessional and unskilled in today's medicine. We got a second opinion from James Graham Brown cancer....they are a team of professionals worried about your well being, unlike jon walker and norton Audubon. 6.5 hour wait for a surgery not needed!!
