Actually listened "patiently". Decided to take x-rays just to be certain if ribs were broken or not. Went directly to the x-ray technician for immediate x-rays. Walker said there were no obvious breaks but would wait to see what the radiologist determined. Walker personally called me when results came from radiologist that 3 ribs (8,9,10) were suspected to be broken but not displaced and to just be careful for a while to let them heal. Very professional yet friendly demeanor.

Talana Walker is the best physician I have ever had. I have no problem talking with her about any issues I may have. I truly brushed cares. other physicians I have had could care little about the outcomes of their efforts other than how well they profit from the issue I had. she is a true care provider.

I had come in before for a rash that I've had and I needed treatment for it which I got but that didn't really help. I came in again to see if I could get something different to help my rash and she prescribed me this solution that has been helping me and I'm happy because I've had this rash for a very long time. Finally found something that helps me!

provider did not seem to care about giving anti fungus med with antibiotic. I always have to have anti fungus meds with antibiotics due to fungus infection. And I currently have a wide spread infection already. it took a lot to get it. Also dr did not want look into why I'm getting so many left ear infections in the last few years. Just wanted to give meds and let me go.

Everyone from my visit from the staff that checked me in, CMA & the provider were EXCELLENT! They showed compassion, empathy & kindness & completely put me at ease & made my uncomfortable situation regarding my medical issue so much better! I was blown away with this experience & wish all of them were so great! I would absolutely recommend NP Walker & the Westfield clinic and have already!
