Care Philosophy

I am a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician with over 20 years of clinical experience.  In my part-time private practice, I enjoy treating patients of all ages with a variety of conditions. I strive to provide compassionate, personalized care.  I have been told by patients that they really feel that I listen to their concerns and provide valuable feedback. Many have said that I have an excellent "bed-side manner."  I also teach at the St. Anthony North Family Medicine Residency supervising doctors in training.  This rewarding work requires me to stay current with the latest evidence based medicine recommendations.

To existing patients, I thank you for your loyalty.  The most rewarding part of my practice are the long-standing relationships that I have had the privilege to develop with many of you!  To new patients, I welcome the opportunity to meet you and partner to achieve your health care needs.

I have been a patient of Dr. Walker's for at least 10 years. I am a healthy person so I generally only see her once a year for my annual preventive care/well visits. However, I am impressed by the fact that she always remembers me, makes me feel like she really cares, is very good about taking time to answer my questions, does a nice job of explaining what she is doing, and I never feel rushed when seeing her.
