Dr. Walker is amazing and so easy to talk to and converse with. She listens to me and is thorough and makes me feel "taken care of".

Dr. Walker is NEVER in a hurry to speed the appointment along. She has a wonderful bed-side manner and is very caring, calm and loving in how she talks to me. I am so happy to have found her (I tried many doctors before and loved her right away)

Although Dr Walker listened to my concerns, I felt she wasn't actually hearing me. in addition, when I had a blood test come back abnormal, she never called me despite my requests so I was left to interpret the results on my own.

I was a patient for years of Dr Walker's in Totem Lake and drive from Bothell in the traffic to see her in Issaquah. She is absolutely worth the drive

Dr. Walker has been my physician for 20 years or so. She is my "go to" medical professional. I have followed her a couple of times from one location to another. I'd never ever change health providers if I have the choice. I even selected my health insurance plan to ensure that I could keep Dr. Walker as MY doctor.

It would be extremely beneficial to patients if all physicians were also skilled in alternative medicine approaches and treatments, and/or if Swedish/Providence also had Naturopaths on staff for those patients with medical conditions that do not conform to main-stream Western medicine.

Dr Walker has been an excellent physician to oversee my 96 year old Mother's health. Dr Walker talks and listens to her, and seems sincerely interested in conversation with her. She preserves her dignity and has a smile and sense of humor with her. It's always a treat to see Dr Jo Walker.

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.

Dr Walker is the best PCP I've ever had. She is so very caring, talks so easily, listens amazingly. I'm always amazed at how comfortable I am with her and how much I trust and respect the care she provides to me. I feel VERY fortunate that she is my PCP!
