Specialties

Dr. Frank C Walker Jr has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Nephrology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Probably saved my son's life!

Dr. Walker has been my sons' pediatricians since their birth (they are now 14 & 17) . I chose him because of his straightforward, no-nonsense approach, which was great for a nervous new mom (no he does not coddle!). Although the wait time can be a pain at times, he and his staff have always been top-rate. His nurses give great advice & he is not a 'antibiotics for everything' doctor. When my older son was 2, he nearly died from acute pancreatitis, and Dr. Walker drove me IN HIS OWN CAR to the pediatric ER, walked me up the back steps & checked me in himself. I will NEVER forget that.
