30/08/09 5 3 5 5 We don't always agree on things... like in every other relationship in life. HOWEVER, is one of the very few doctors that I've EVER felt truly approached his practice as a true PARTNERSHIP between doctor and patient. There is always give and take in the discussions. He listens to my questions and answers them. He does not claim to know it all or claim to know all the answers. He knows PLENTY, but is also willing to write referrals when needed to specialists (who more often than not come to the same conclusions.) He is not stingy with his time nor with his compassion - especially toward patients like me who have a laundry list of not-so-common medical issues. His staff works the same way - they take care of the billing and the paperwork and those types of things in the way that you'd expect professionals to do, but they very clearly have a heart for the patients just as Dr. Walker does.

19/07/09 5 4 5 5 a great doctor in my book and would recommend to anyone. He is smart and caring and friendly. He is thorough and he and his partners will come to their office on week ends if you need it. Highly recommended. the waiting at that office is a little slow at times but i guess all are that way now. They stay busy and must mean they are liked. I have used him and his partner for over 15 years and like them. They have a new partner now with an additional office since early 2009.His staff is ok and would consider typical front office for a doctor.  Respond
