Her consultation was thorough and I left there with a whole new look on my life. She is the best and I look forward to her working with me to get where I need to be.

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.

I was very impressed with her and she was by far one of the top doctors that I have seen during my time of seeing doctors at Scott & White!!

Dr. Burke was outstanding -- she included me in decisions regarding care for my osteoporosis, had thoroughly reviewed all of my related medical records and labs, she explained my conditions and options extremely well to me, and gave me encouragement that my condition can be improved and/or stabilized. For this, I am extremely grateful and even though we will be moving out of state in the next few months, I will travel back to College Station for my appointments.

I have never had a Doctor give the care and spend the time to discuss the problems that I needed to talk about. This Doctor talked at length and answered all my questions I had about certain ailments I was having. She went at lengths to research and provide possible solutions. I would and will highly recommend this Doctor to anyone who needs her expertise. She is Great and very Caring.

In 67 years, I have never been been treated by a more thorough, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic physician than Dr. Burk. She took plenty of time going over my medical history, medications, and test results, as well as answering my questions and addressing all of my concerns. She never made me feel rushed or that I was taking more than my share of her time. But I was most impressed by Dr. Burks' encouragement anyone d recognition of my daily attempts at taking care of myself. Rarely am I made to feel good about hmyself by physicians. Dr. Burks has restored my faith in the medical community as a whole and specifically in physicians. Dr. Burk is, in my opinion, a real keeper!
