I love Dr. Walker. He's been such a refreshing change of medical care for me. Really is a gem! He listens, is knowledgeable about various methods of treatment, and will help you figure out what's the best way to proceed. Also, his wait time is not bad. On average I only wait 20 minute in the waiting/examine room. Sometimes it's even quicker and with all that he does not rush through your appointment.

I've been Dr. Walker's patient for a number of years, and found him to be an excellent physician. He is thorough, patient, empathetic, and extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Walker has a wellness and prevention focus which is vital to me, and he treats his patients with respect as individuals. I have had no issues with waiting times or his staff, who I have always found to be friendly and helpful, and I don't think that a longer wait reflects on him as a physician. I'd be willing to wait to see him!

Dr. Walker is the most caring, compassionate, and professional doctor I have ever seen. I've been a patient for several years. He is very thorough and talks to me candidly about my health and medications. I never feel like he is rushing through my appointment. His staff always gets me in when I call and they too are kind and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Walker.

I sent Dr Walker a message electronically, and he responded quickly and gave me a thorough answer. When he orders tests for me, he takes my wishes into account, and explains his rationale. When I work with Dr Walker, he treats me with as an equal partner in my health care, which I appreciate.

I have traveled the world and had many doctors. None are perfect, but Dr. Walker has good bedside manor. He seems to patiently listen and discuss patient concerns in more depth than 95% of the doctors I've seen. That's why he gets the 5 stars. He's a good communicator and flexible and respectful of patient rights. He's not just a legal drug dealer. He seems to actually try to solve the root cause as much as the health care system allows him to.

I am a new patient. So far most of the previous responses are correct. I do not think that Dr. Walker should be rated lower because his staff does not return calls. I feel he should be rated on his performance as a doctor. As stated, I've been a patient a short time and so far I would agree that he does spend time with his patients and this is a plus in my book. I have learned to be patient and wiat.

Doc Walker is thorough with patients. As another stated, very difficult to get in contact with nurse and other staff. Phone almost always busy, and call backs dont happen. They are either too busy or distracted. Not what I was used to with other offices.

Doctor is fine if you can ever get in to see him. His staff is horrible. Does not return calls, does not follow up on scheduling

Dr Walker sometimes runs behind in his appointments, but that is because he takes the time to listen to his patients and explain and answer questions. I would rather wait to see him and know I will get his full attention when it is my turn.
