    Dr. Walker and his staff have been caring, attentive, and helpful. The office is run very well with the patient as the number one priority. Dr. Walker answered all of my questions during both of my office visits and the day of surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Walker.

    Operated on me after many years of suffering & walking on Canadian crutches for six of those years.He performed excellently. I highly recommend him. After third day I left the hospital after the very complex surgery and haven't used any crutches for four to five years now.

    If I had known that Dr. Walker was surgeon and could Not help my father, due to the fact he can not be put on a vent, I would not of wasted any more of his time or mine. He did explain, briefly, the two types of surgery he could do, IF dad could be put on the vent during surgery. Since that is not an option, he really didn't have time for us after that. I asked if he could call in a medication, the PA, Heather, said she would. When I went to the pharmacy the next day, IT HADN'T BEEN CALLEDIN
