Biography

“I appreciate the opportunity to listen to patients and their families. Patient stories are key to establishing a solid plan for medical care that incorporates the patient and family values and needs. I also value working with an interdisciplinary team to improve quality of life both for those living with a serious illness and for those approaching the end of life.”

Dr. Walker is board certified in family, palliative and hospice medicine. He specializes in palliative medicine and symptom management for patients with serious illnesses.

Dr. Walker received his medical degree and completed a fellowship at Indiana University.

Outside of work, he loves spending time with his husband, son and miniature schnauzer. Together, they spend time in Asheville hiking and enjoying nature. They also travel domestically and internationally. When on his own, he enjoys running, exercising, theater and writing.
