I came early and was seen within 15 min and reassured that my cough was most likely viral bronchitis and that the Delsyn over the counter drug was fine and if it didn\'t get better in a couple of days I should return. indeed I slept better than I have in two weeks and today I feel it is under control and I\'m able to resume my usual activities without spontaneously coughing. thank you, dr Walker.

He listened to me. He asked questions. He diagnosed my problem and provided me with medication that addressed the issue. I had previously seen two other doctors who were part of the BSW network. Neither took the time or the care that Dr. Walker did. They both misdiagnosed my issue and I was in a great deal of pain for 2 1/2 months because of this. I really appreciate Dr. Walker, his care, his expertise, and his concern.

dr walker is an excellent md, BUT he is never given enough time w his patients. the administration DOES NOT give the md\'a enough time. a check up should have at least 30 min. a follow up should be no less than 20mins. none of the mds @ S&W ever have enough time to spend w their patients
