Without a doubt, Dr. Burks is the most thorough, patient, kind, concerned, knowledgeable, and compassionate physician by whom I've ever been treated. She spent plenty of time with me going over my records and test results, made sure I understood what she was telling me, and in general, she made me feel like this is a collaborative effort, rather than a parent/child relationship (me being the child). I hope she never leaves the BCS area!

Dr. Burks was very attentive to the discussion we had. She explained everything very well. She spent all the time that was necessary to complete what I needed to know. She followed up immediately after the bloodwork results were posted and explained the results very well. The staff at check in on the first and third floor were very pleasant as were the staff inside the Endocrinologists office.
