While I know this is not Dr. Walker's specialty, questions regarding updates on neuropathy, sleep apnea, options for fighting allergies, aging pain issues was not as comprehensive as I expected. She just referred me to specialists. Not all tests for blood work was ordered [...]. I appreciate Dr. Walker and the time she spends with me, but she seemed to have few questions about my prior concerns and health history. I initiated all of the conversation. [...] Dr. Walker is very kind and considerate; I would like a bit more assertiveness on her part, as Doctor, to convince me she is aware of my history.

There just seemed to be a discrepancy between what the handout said and the dr. said on how long the virus would be contagious. I ended up averaging the two answers.

My current PCP has the kindest manner and shows more concern for my health than any PCP I've ever had. That is why I travel almost an hour out of my way when I need medical attention.

My biggest issue with this visit came afterwards, when the results of an office ECG were posted to mychart without explanation or interpretation. Normally, that wouldn't be an issue, but this ECG was described in the report as "Abnormal." With no knowledge of how to interpret the report, I was left to fret over a weekend, plus a Monday, before I could talk with my provider and learn what the report meant. My doctor was surprised to learn that this kind of test result would show up on mychart, so perhaps the situation was out of her control. I did call the after-hours number and did receive a call from a physician other than my usual doctor, who did tell me that I didn't need to panic. However, I didn't get all the information I needed until the following Tuesday.

I ALWAYS enjoy seeing Dr. Walker and visiting with her, in addition to her taking care of the reason for my visit. [...] I referred my adult daughter to her and she, too, is very pleased with Dr. Walker.

Dr. Walker has been my doctor for over 20 years. When I moved to Issaquah, I was very happy to learn that she was going to be here as well so I switched my records to Swedish Primary Care.
