I always recommend Dr. Walker to family, friends,and even other physicians. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and I never feel rushed during my appointments. She always answers my questions, and is very accessible should I have questions or concerns following my appointment. I have been a patient for the last 8 years, and her recommended course of treatment has helped me tremendously.
