This review is a longtime coming but Dr. Walker-McCarter is fantastic. It’s rare to find a professional who listens and takes as long as is necessary to address your concern. I’ve had a personally hard time this past year with aneven harder to treat condition and not once was I made to feel rushed, uncomfortable, stupid, or overwhelmed.

I really loved my visit with Dr. Walker-McCarter. She is very knowledgeable and welcoming, and did a great job explaining everything to me in a very digestible form. I was also just generally impressed with how well she was able toexamine / twist / turn my body to find the specific things that were causing me pain.

She was very informated and showed a real concern for my wrist injury. I’d been to a few other doctors who didn’t quite know what they were talking about. We discussed the different paths in which to take for my specificinjury, and I can’t wait to continue with potential treatments.

I saw Dr. Walker-McCarter for shoulder pain. She did a thorough exam of my shoulder including ultrasound and took time to explain my diagnosis in detail and provided a practical treatment plan. She was refreshingly friendly and professional.I will absolutely be following up with her as needed and recommending her to everyone.

Dr Walker was very patient with me and asked lots of question about my condition. She was professional and has a very solid understanding of what she is doing. It was also nice to have her explain everything in detail tome. I felt being taken care of while she examined me and I could tell she was getting to the root of my problem with one question after another. I would highly recommend Dr Walker for anyone who has problems/issues with back or spine. She is truly helpful.
