Good.

3/31/2017

If I know anyone with movement disorders, I would definitely recommend *Dr. Francis Walker.

2/28/2017

Very friendly, easy to talk to. Always has answers to our questions. Always came out feeling better than when we went in.

2/22/2017

The provider only came in to read the test results and did not look at medical history. Also didn't provide much feedback at end other than sending results to my PCP.

2/16/2017

I spent around 3 minutes with MD. I was asked a question, but told not to speak during the test. The test were performed by a tech and a resident. When I asked questions, I was referred to the attending MD. The MD did not return after the test. No one could answer any questions, but would refer me to the attending MD. I have been dealing with an ongoing set of symptoms for months, but feel like I have more questions now than at the onset.Everyone was quite friendly and seemed knowledgeable. After reviewing some of Dr Walker's publications and reviews, I was looking forward to discussing my symptoms and issues with him. Unfortunately, circumstances did not allow.I don't think anything was out of the norm for the department, I just expected a little more time with the MD and hopefully some clarification and direction regarding my issues.
