Dr. Walker devotes her full attention to her patient, taking time to explain the details of the medical problem as well as he information regarding medications. She isn't like many doctors to pay more attention typing into their computer than facing their patient. I would give her ten stars if that were an option.

It upsets me to see people write about Dr Walkers staff! It is a small office and just have a secretary and nurse. They are so kind and will bend over backward for you. Sometimes they get busy and you may have to call back but it is only because something has happened or she got an emergency. The office staff are very good at what they do. Let them know if there is a problem. They don’t mean to forget or send in something. I have had a time or two in 20 yrs that something didn’t get called in but we don’t know what happens behind the scenes. She is a one doctor practice and takes her own call but does have other pulmonary doctors take call for her every other weekend and if she takes a day or two off. Just call them back! Dr Walker is worth it! The best pulmonary doctor in town. She takes time with all her patients no matter what! Best diagnostician! Love her! She will respect you if you let her know if a problem and just call the office back and they will get it done

Dr. Walker is very through and knowledgeable about this field. She spent plenty of time answering questions and ordering tests. The problems I encountered are with her staff. They do not follow up and become irritated when I call again and again. They are unresponsive and it’s frustrating.

She would have five stars if she had a nursing staff that were better organized and followed through on their tasks such as ordering prescriptions, follow through on special requests, returning phone calls. Her staff is courteous but follow up and follow through is atrocious. Very unprofessional sadly. It takes away from Dr. Walker's reputation. When Dr. Walker has a protocol for us to follow it is not uncommon for it to not be implemented because of problems with the staff.
