I was a little surprised that she did not write a letter to the board (reg. ins.) appealing the stitches they were denying me. It was HER recommendation to have it done & get this procedure rolling.

I think the world of Carina Walker, PA. As my Lap Band dr, she is so helpful with my weight loss program. Never leaves until all questions are answered and never feel rushed. Wish she was my primary dr.

As you can see, I gave my PA a "5" answer to all of the above. She was excellent, and I left my appointment very satisfied and happy from my visit with her. My husband was with me at my appointment, and we commented to one another when we left about my visit being a pleasant experience because of Ms. Walker.
