Medical Practice Consultant
Barbara Levy Walker
Having grown up in a family of “medical professionals,” it was with good reason that I chose to focus on a career in Medical Consulting. After working in the medical community in Fredericksburg, Texas over the past forty years; I am pleased to be living in Mason.
As the industry of healthcare changes; I am inspired to widen my knowledge base and continue to advise physicians and their practices as the need arises. Healthcare has become a challenging and shifting environment, not only for patients and physicians; but for the practical survival of a practice.
I have, over the years, been fortunate to advise physicians in keeping their practices current with not only policies and procedures; but in turning around their methodology in not only following updated guidelines to ensure compliance but staffing management and providing excellence in patient care.
My goal for long-term practice success is to ensure that the education and recommendation I provide not only encompasses the current practice of medicine but looks to future changes in the landscape in an ever-changing healthcare world. Confident and in-depth understanding of these changes assists the physician and staff in their approach to the care of patients.
I have been privileged to assist patients in finding and obtaining health care resources; working with underinsured and uninsured patients, working with patients with disabilities and medical resourcing for indigent patients.
My second love is freelance features writing. Being on-site and meeting and interviewing a subject is on of the most rewarding experiences I have encountered. Listening to one’s story or researching a venue is an exhilarating experience. Sharing those stories in print is just one way to introduce the subject to each reader on a large scale. I have written pieces for Texas Now Magazine, Rock & Vine Magazine, PMCA Magazine, and various newspaper articles.
I am thrilled to be living and working in Mason and look forward to my future here!
