Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The staff is unpleasant. The nurse does the entire assessment and all the work. Dr. Kelly barely talks to you.

Ive been going to Dr Walker for 20 years now. A nurse takes you back and goes over all your information then relays to to Dr Walker, so when she walks in the room she is prepared to work with you. I see the doctor every single time I go. I fully trust her with making sure im always taking the medications that work best for me.

I love Dr. Walker. She’s helped me so much with my struggle of addiction. The people leaving bad reviews don’t understand how Psychiatry offices work..

My mother was going to Dr. Walker for anxiety and since she doesn't take Medicare she was charging $145 for a visit and usually just saw the nurse. My mother finally decided to stop going to her and cancelled her appointment two weeks in advance and they charged her $20 for cancelling the appointment. I would never recommend Dr. Walker.

Absolutely the worst place for anybody with coexisting problems.I was blacklisted before I even got to see the doctor.A true Addiction doctor would at least talk to A patient before refusing to treat. JUST FOR The record I am A very polite nonviolent person.

ALWAYS! I have recommended Dr. Walker to many, she is amazing at every aspect of giving her patients the compassion and sternness when need be and I say that because I am seven years sober and bipolar in remission (NO MEDS) thanks to Dr. Walker! I am also going into my third year of psychology major, concentrated in substance abuse counseling and she has went over and beyond to assist in furthering my education and future life goals! Thank you and your beautiful staff for never giving up on me!
