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.

**negative reviews do not always tell the whole story, I will respond objectively.

Denver, CO |
Dr. Walker is a wonderful physician. She is extremely personable and up on the latest research.
in Longmont, CO |
When Dr. Walker left the Milestone Family Practice I stayed on there with another physician as they could not give me any information on where she had moved her practice to. A couple of years later I found her again. So glad I did. She is the best. Caring and compassionate. So easy to talk to.
in Denver, CO |
I have been a patient of Dr. Walker for a few years now. I am treated with respect and consideration in the office. She has always been very thorough in my visits and yearly check-ups. She calls me personally to supply results from tests, its not the staff who contact me. I feel very comfortable with her- and feel i am getting the best care possible- I will continue to see her as my PCP!

We have been seeing Dr. Walker for at least 5 years. She is a great doctor and she always pays attention to details. She listens and pay careful consideration of your condition. She always explains why certain things need to be done but never pushes you to do it. She is respectful of her patient's decisions. We love how she always treats us like family/friend and she shows genuine concern for our well-being. Definitely love her!

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.
