CEO/Founder Walker Health Care Systems, Inc. and The Village Prime Care, Inc.

Richard W. Walker, Jr., MD, MBA, IFMCP was born in New York City; and has practiced medicine for 35 years. He retired from clinical medicine in 2015, and lives in Houston, TX. He practiced Ob/Gyn for 20 years then, changed his practice to Environmental and Functional Medicine. He is Board Certified in Functional, and Age Management Medicine (hormone therapy) by the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) and the Cenegenics Institute of Medicine, respective. He’s practiced the later disciplines for the last 15 years.

He was honorably discharged in `68, as a Viet Nam era vet, from the USAF.

He’s a graduate of: CUNY, John Jay College, 1971 a BS in Forensic Science; the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, in 1974, Medical Doctorate; and the U. of Michigan, Ob/Gyn, Ann Arbor, Mich. 1978, Internship/Residency. Received his combined MBA from the Jack Welch Management Institute/Strayer U. (with distinction) and the Thomas Jefferson U. Medical School in May, 2017. He has authored peer reviewed articles, and has an award winning book, African American Healthy, 2011.

Dr. Walker found Walker Health Care Systems, Inc. and The Village Prime Care, Inc. as a response to health care’s failure to, adequately and successfully, address the care of the most vulnerable in our population: the elderly, chronically ill and vets. He finds that chasing health cost is bogus, and that the true root cause of problems in the US health care model is one of access and quality; thus, his vision for the model of the two companies.
