Dr. Paul Walker has the following 2 specialties
- Allergy and Immunology
An allergy & immunology specialist is a physician who is specially trained in matters pertaining to chronic and acute allergies, as well as deficiencies of the immune system. The doctor will determine whether an allergy, which attacks our immune system, is present. They'll also determine the cause, whether it be environmental triggers like trees and pollen, food-borne like peanuts and dairy, the venom of insects like bees, or a medication like penicillin.
In addition to determining the allergen causing an immunological response in a patient, the specialist will treat the symptoms caused by the reaction.
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.

The staff at Dr. Walkers office are disorganized and unprofessional. I received a phone call about records I requested for my son since I'm changing providers due to poorly managed allergic reactions. The phone was to tell me that I haven't picked up the records yet and that they were sending me to collection for $10 (apparently the fee for record request). First I was unaware of a fee. I then told the rude office woman that that was ridiculous and inappropriate since they are sending it to collection for something I had not received yet!!! Unbelievable. Glad I'm leaving.
Dr Walker is a thorough Dr if you don't mind waiting hours after your appointment to see him. I don't know if they overbook but every appointment we have had with him we wait in the room for at least an hour. I have to go out and ask the problem as the staff never checks in. When addressing the problem you get the brush off. A complete disregard to the patient.
