I went to Dr Walker for a consult to determine efficacy of blepharoplasty among other procedures. After paying him the mandatory $100 fee for the consult, I was in the midst of asking him some amplifying questions when his demeanor suddenly changed and he pronounced that I would not be pleased with whatever was done. Apparently a mind reader as well as MD.

Judy is very knowledgeable. She offers straight forward information,advice and opinions,but I never feel obliged to buy products or treatments. I feel great after my facials--why do not i come more often. Crazy! Thanks for the facial and glycolic acid.

I have been seeing Dr Walker for several years now for skin cancers of the face. Dr Walkers professional care has been what keeps me coming back. As a rancher, i have been exposed to hours and hours of sun, which in return has caused a lot of damage, including skin cancers. Dr Walker has educated me and treated me for these cancers and I am always completely satisfied and relieved from his care and work. His office staff is amazing!

Mary Ann and the staff are very helpful in guiding me with choices that are subtle yet effective. They do not try and push me into procedures...even ones that I think I need! They consider long term goals and emphasize skincare. I have been extremely satisfied with my results and look forward to coming for procedures.

Dr Walker's office seems to keep up with all the latest techniques to help patients keep a youthful appearance. I was very pleased with the 'eye job' he did several years ago. I have since had several filler and Botox treatments, as well as facials, performed by the staff, and have always been pleased. Everyone in the office is very friendly and caring. Always a pleasure being there!
