Dr. Walker went above and beyond in my case to determine what was happening to my body sending g out [service] and getting to the problem to help my situation. THANK YOU DR. WALKER. I'm feeling better and better every day

Donald Walker. This was my first visit with him and I found him to be a good listener, well informed regarding my health history, and answered my questions. Also he has a very pleasant manner.
December 17, 2021
Yes, Don Walker. For a first time visit, Don made me feel safe & at ease. He knew my medical history, really listened to what I had to say, and provided feed back on my health that made me feel motivated to do more & better. Don is a wonderful addition to the Asante team and I look forward to partnering with him on my healthcare.

I've seen Don Walker for only one appointment, as I was assigned to him when my primary care NP Annette [ ] left Asante. I'm experiencing new issues of [diagnosis]. He was very helpful and spent about 25 min. with me discussing medication options. His personality was reassuring and he put me at ease while discussing problems that are normally a bit uncomfortable to discuss, especially with a new doctor. He seemed very knowledgeable and I think he cares about truly helping his patients
December 10, 2021
I always felt that my questions and concerns were promptly addressed. The appointments never felt rushed or impersonal.

Don Walker and his assistant were excellent. I truly felt cared for.
November 29, 2021
My previous FNP had left the practice and this was my first time appointment with Donald Walker. He was warm, professional and interested in my health. He took all the time I needed to have my questions answered. I feel confident that I will receive excellent care from him.
November 29, 2021
I thought that my first NP [NAME] was absolutely excellent. Saw her in May & received a notice that she was no longer with you & that Asante had assigned me Don Walker NP as my PCP. Luckily, I liked him very much & appreciate having him. Especially like having a care provider here in Ashland. I worked at [ ] for 35 years & do not want to be cared for under that system, so I am very happy with Asante.

My visit was a first visit to establish new pcp. I was impressed with Dr Walker ( yes I know he is NOT MD but NP but he is PHD!!. so Dr Walker he is to me.)He is Asante and his office is close to my home. So those were reasons I picked. I was delighted with staff and Dr Walker. Staff was organized, efficient, and very courteous. Dr Walker had my records, listened to my concerns; responded to my concerns. This first visit was crucial to me. I had had my previous pcp for over 20 years. Unfortunately my insurance company and Dr [NAME]' Doctor group had dispute about compensation.Also, a lot has changed in my health issues over last 22 years. This old engine needs lots of maintenance and has some very baffling little quirks. I have the impression that Dr Walker is a man with a compassionate personality bonded with a strong intellect, and inquiring mind.Perfect for working with me to investigate and treat the quirky reality of being in my [AGE]s heading to my [AGE]s.
November 25, 2021
I am delighted to have Donald Walker as my Primary Care Provider. He listened to my questions and answered them with respect and clarity. I did not feel rushed during my visit. I felt encouraged to continue my current health practices and given direction towards improving my already good health. His nurse, Shayla, was also very encouraging and respectful.
November 24, 2021
I was treated very well by the staff here at my last visit.

I have seen Donald Walker only once. Everything was delt with in a perfect way.
November 04, 2021
Tracy [ ] was very caring and careful to explain every part of the procedure (ear lavage) before proceeding. I was extremely impressed by her dedication to providing patient care.
October 29, 2021
Donald Walker is the best!!! I didn't know what to expect meeting him for the first time, but he far exceeded my expectations. He's professional, kind, a good listerner and I left feeling that my health mattered. I will definitely want to see him again.
October 28, 2021
Been to the office 3 times don't know the names of the personell Natasha comes to mind as super nice to set up an appointment after they got some test results
October 19, 2021
This was my first visit to this office and everything went very well. Not applicable to this office what I'm hearing in the local news about Asante and general firing employees for not getting the Covid vaccine is very troublesome and has me thinking that I need to go back to my previous provider outside of Asante
October 11, 2021
Donald Walker was kind and compassionate during my visit and listened to my health needs. The front desk person was also very understanding.

Very nice and helpful
September 23, 2021
This was my first visit with Donald Walker because my normal primary doctor moved to the ER off of Barnett. When I did my zoom visit with him he was very understanding and heard what I had to say. He didn't try to push his opinions or a decision on me, but offered information to help me make a decision. He was very nice and I am considering making him my primary doctor.

Contacting me about a change was in provider assignment, listing options, and setting up an appointment with the new provider.
September 16, 2021
Donald Walker specifically advised me that I was eligible for the COVID-19 Pfizer booster as of the day I went in for my visit. I had not asked about this because I thought I could not get the booster until October.
September 15, 2021
Everyone did the best they could, and that is the best I can expect.
September 09, 2021
Donald Walker didn't an excellent job. I felt so lucky to get an appointment with him the morning after I called to see my previous doctor who I didn't know had retired.
September 08, 2021
Thank you,Doctor was more than I even hoped!

All staff, nurses, and Don always pleasure to interact with.
August 18, 2021
This happened just once that I needed a prescription re-filled. I now live in Eugene and have not been able to find a primary care provider. Dr. [NAME] was out of town, and the staff asked me to do the telephone video with Donald Walker. One time, one video, but he came to my aid and prescribed the Prednisone until I can find help here in Eugene. Thanks to everyone who helped me.

Everyone was courteous and helpful.
July 29, 2021
I felt comfortable.
July 28, 2021
I changed from Dr [NAME] to Dr Walker. Dr [NAME] didn't do any follow up on medication or why Medicare did want to do a bone test. She was always in a hurry to move on. I moved over to dr Walker and in just one appointment I was given answers to my questions and a conversation on how I felt and I need to come back in a year or soon if need be. I felt he cared and he knew what he was talking about.
July 28, 2021

Dr. Donald Walker was professional and thorough in evaluating my medical problem. He then had specific solutions to offer, and he went to great care in detailing a plan for me to follow. He also wrote a very specific referral to Asante Imaging office for me to have a CT scan done promptly. All his efforts were greatly appreciated.
