Dr Walker was great with our son! He went the extra mile to "check" our son's stuffed bear's ears to make him at ease.
*Dr. Walker is absolutely THE BEST! He is great with my daughter and very thorough.
It was easy to discuss my fears about what was happening to me and to understand the whole matter. A relief to learn I do not have to worry. Better than any medicine.
doctor listened to concerns. came up with a conservative plan to watch and see for 3 weeks after course of meds to see if condition cleared up before completing surgery
dr is great, not a robot as other dr's can be
