I had the misfortune of going to this shithole twice over the last ten days and each time I was repenting my decision. When I arrived the first time, I was treated by a totally incompetent doctor. He wanted to run few tests which were totally unrelated to my problem. He finally relented when he realized I could not be fooled.

The second visit was made miserable by a nurse who was very rude and very condescending. According to her, my problem was self-created, and I should be more careful about myself. She slipped into giving sermons. After hearing her for nearly 15 minutes, I cut her off. I told her I was already miserable, and I did not want to be more miserable by listening to her.

The quality of care was the same – shitty. I would not repeat the mistake …Hasta La Vista Walker BMC!!!!!!!

A quick visit to the ER for a deep gash following a kitchen accident. The ER nurse took me in, and the PA did an excellent job with the wound. Stitches were placed, a script for antibiotics was given, a shot is given, and I was on my way. The whole visit lasted only 45 minutes. No complaints here.

I had surgery here and a three-day stay for observation and recuperation. The operation was done by an excellent surgeon who made it a point to come and check me while I was on the floor. The nurses were excellent and ensured that my stay was comfortable. They also made sure my wife did not face any issues while she kept a vigil. Thank you for taking good care of me

One of the worst hospitals that I have ever been to, and I have been to quite a few hospitals. I had gone with my boyfriend and was greeted by a very rude nurse. She was filled with anger and was shouting at everyone. It was clear that she did not like her job. My boyfriend had enough of her ranting and decided to leave. If you hate a job, then quit. Not planning to return here anytime soon!!

Received wonderful care at Walker Baptist Medical Center ER. The duty doctor was very friendly and had the time and patience to hear me out and then go ahead with the tests and diagnosis. She treated me well. Thankfully, I have recovered well enough. Very impressed!! Won’t hesitate to return
