Dr. Walker is kind, efficient doctor. He is on time and explains things well. Answering all our question. His staff is equally kind.
Dr. Walker was able to return my use to 100%. PT told me to expect only 80% because of my age. Thank you to all in the office for being kind and on time.
My pre and post surgical care was excellent. Dr. Walker and his support team have been amazing to work with and have taken great care of me with a multiple tear rotator cuff surgery.
Dr. Walker is a gifted surgeon and has a very pleasant manner and personality. My reverse shoulder replacement surgery was performed extremely well and the Parham Doctors Hospital and nursing staff were amazing. I must also add Dr. Walker’s nurse is friendly and professional. I may need to have my other shoulder replaced and I would not hesitate returning to Dr. Walker at OrthoVirginia.
Quick, efficient, friendly. Makes himself available for his patients, even on the weekend, for questions/concerns/etc. Really nice guy who makes you feel comfortable and who understands that every patient is different. He did a great job with my broken clavicle that needed plates and screws. I highly recommend Dr. Walker.
Awesome, patient, and explained all about my options.
Dr. Matt Walker is the BEST orthopedic surgery I have visited since Dr. Donald Davidson. Dr. Walker has the best humor and bedside manner.
If the repair is to fix you is surgery, then he will not beat around the bush like many other doctors that are scared of insurance companies.
A funny side note but this goes a long way to his character. I am no fan of anesthesia. When possible I always remain awake in surgery. This usually will piss off many doctors. (I’ve had a few too many surgeries from motorcycle accidents, imagine that!) But Dr. Walker had no problem with me staying awake. We had the best time during the surgery as all the nurses were laughing and they even played hard rock and roll. What a blast.
You might be curious as to the outcome of the surgery for ulnar nerve entrapment and carpal tunnel. Excellent recovery and back to bodybuilding in less than a month.
I have now sent three colleagues/friends to see Dr. Walker and they all have been very impressed.
