About Caroline Walker, M.D.

Dr. Walker is a board-certified gastroenterologist with TDDC in Denton. She performs routine and emergent GI procedures such as upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, and enteroscopy in the diagnosis, screening, and surveillance of gastrointestinal diseases and cancers. She treats a broad variety of general GI/hepatic disorders, including IBD, fatty liver, dysphagia, GERD, HCV/HBV, constipation, and diarrhea. Special interests include treating pregnant women with GI (e.g. IBD) or liver issues. During her training, her research interests included disparities in IBD in men vs women. Other research she enjoyed examined post-transplant data to help examine which cardiac risk factors (if any) might be able to serve as a red flag for poor survival after liver transplant (<6 months). She is a member of the ACG, ASCGE, AASLD, and AGA.

Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

I was attracted to gastroenterology because of the diversity of the field. It allows me to treat both the acutely ill patient in the hospital setting, as well as develop a relationship with a patient over several years in the outpatient setting. It permits me to use the diagnostic skills of an internal medicine doctor in addition to performing procedures.

Do you have a specialty of interest in Gastroenterology?

I enjoy treating a wide variety of general GI conditions including liver disease.

What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?

I have always been an avid reader, enjoying both fiction and non-fiction. Walks in our local parks serve to re-energize me and give me new gardening ideas. The thing, I enjoy most, however, is spending time with my extended family who live in the area. While sports are not my passion, I look forward to front row seats at all of my niece’s and nephews’ games.
