Patient Comments (6)
Ft Worth, TX |
Nightmare that I am still living. Surgery for a torn meniscus over a year ago. He missed what was actually wrong and did not listen to my concerns when my condition rapidly got worse after the surgery. Still unable to walk and facing additional surgery. but not with this Doctor.
in TX |
Very displeased with the surgery this so called doctor/surgeon did....Since then my recovery time has been a long horrible process...
in Ft Worth, TX |
Dr Walker is an excellent doctor. Dr Walker did a complete hip replacement on my mother and she was very pleased.
Cleburne, TX |
Very personable and knowledgeable, and he explained my condition and the options for surgery. He explained what to expect from the process. I was impressed that he too the time to pray with me and my family prior to the surgery.
in Irving, TX |
I waited AT LEAST 45 min for 2 of my 3 appnts, and 1.45 hours for follow up (I know this isn't directly the Dr's fault, but at least tell me to expect a long wait if behind). For my knee fracture, he prescribed Tylenol #3 for pain (a narcotic) with 4 refills, which would've been about 7 weeks worth! This bothered me, as knew I could become dependent on these after 2 weeks! He did not read my MRI result until I asked him to, and I feel that I, the patient, led my appointment and not the doctor...
in Paradise Tx |
I had knee replacement and dr walker was amazing. He was courteous informative and just an excellent Doctor. After only 2 and a half weeks I have almost total range of motion. I am very excited about my new knee and I can't thank dr walker enough for his excellent skill and help for my future knee.
