Dr. Walker was perfect - amazing bedside manner for our 4 year old as his first time visiting. Dr. Walker was detailed, took time to allow whatever questions I had and provided great feedback. Made the process very easy and I'm thankful.
Dr. Walker was very caring, listened to all of my concerns, and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to others.
I recommend Dr Walker to everyone. He's a fantastic doctor and it doesn't hurt that he's easy on the eyes.
This is the second time Dr. Walker has treated me for ear infections and I highly recommend him. He has a good patient demeanor yet is very efficient and didn't waste time in determining and executing the treatment plan.
I've never met a doctor like Dr. Walker. He was so calm and sweet with my son and made me feel at ease about everything. He followed up to check in on Eli every day, from the day we first saw him through to his surgery. He's absolutely fabulous at his job.
