Ratings for Dr. James D. Walker
We are new to this practice but it seems that this Dr. doesn’t actually see his patients. You see one of his nurse practitioners who seem to be overworked and forgetful of their recommendations. Also, while I did agree to it, because I am on anxiety meds, I have to go in for a check up, every three months. (I was initially told every month for a drug test but like I said, his staff seems to be forgetful because upon my next visit, it changed to three months) Also, my 42 year old wife has to see them every 6 months “per our insurances policies” (BCBS) for her birth control. Also, my cholesterol was slightly high so I was called and advised to change my diet and then come back in for labs again in 6 months. My wife had very similar lab results, no call. Again, the office staff is nice and organizes but we are getting odd results from the nurse practitioner that we are seeing. Again, I feel that she is overworked. I also still find it odd that the doctor doesn’t see patients, just the nurses.
This is one of the best doctors around! He always listens to your problems and takes his time with you. He is eager to help you with referrals to specialists if you need help with a particular ailment. Many members of my extended family are equally pleased with his care. I myself was a patient of his father before him.
Dr walker is wonderful and he takes time to hear what ails ya. Lol. He is professional and his staff takes care of biz like no ones . There is a lab. Pharmacy, RMI (imaging). All in one stop building . The only thing that might be updated is the phones and it could use a elevator . But the dr great. The one with this low score you know he is not like that and you should retract your comment
Dr. Walker has been our doctor for many years--we have found him & his staff to be top rated professionals in ALL aspects of the medical field; very knowledgeable and patient friendly in his dealings; he has always gone the extera mile to ensure we get proper & prompt treatment. All his patients we have ever spoke to regarding his service, etc. have always spoke very highlyof him. Please correct your low rating of him at the earliest possible time. Nick/Kathy Taddia
Dr. Walker has been my Dr. since he took over for his father in 1995. He is very knowledgeable. He will always run tests, "better safe than sorry" he says. He won't prescribe medicine that you don't need. He is a very common sense kind of man. He has an excellent bedside manner and is great with kids. The only thing I could say is that I have had to wait at times (like flu season when everyone's sick), but usually I get in right away. His staff has never been anything but cheerful and polite to me and everyone in my family. I recently got married and would like to switch both my husband and step-daughter to Dr. Walker because both of their Drs. don't even come close to the kind of attention and care that I receive from Dr. Walker.
Dr James Walker II has misdiagnosed several members of our family including myself on different occasions. He always leaves patients waiting to see him with no respect or regard to his patients schedules. His staff is the rudest I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing. Dr. Walker's bedside manner is o.k. once you've finally gotten past staff and waited too long to see him. However, I have zero confidence in him as he does not seem eager to really solve health issues.
