G. Kirk Walker, MD, grew up in a small town. "I am from a small community where there were two physicians," Dr. Walker recalled. "I always admired their commitment to others and the impact they had on all of our lives."
Dr. Walker wanted to have a similar impact. "I have a commitment to my patients and a commitment to my community," he explained. "I chose pediatrics because of the opportunity to be involved not only with my patients from the very beginning of their lives, but also with their families as those children grow up."
As a board-certified pediatrician, Dr. Walker provides comprehensive pediatric care for patients from birth through adolescence. He especially enjoys helping children through developmental issues and school problems. After more than a quarter century in practice and after having raised three sons of his own, he can confidently say he knows kids! "I could not see a more fulfilling career," he said.
