Dr. Burk was very open with me and explained why she wanted to make some changes to my medication. She has always treated me more like a friend than just a patient. She always asks about my well being and how I am doing at home as I live alone now do to the death of my wife a year ago. In short, I just love her as my doctor.

Dr. Burks inspires confidence because she listens to, and connects with, you. She acknowledges that the healing process is a partnership with the patient. This requires mutual respect and is the special ingredient, combined with compassion, that she gives in abundance which makes it much easier to listen to and follow recommendations for care, especially when it isn't what you want to hear! Her explanations are always clear and concise. And, she listens carefully and truly considers alternative options you present. She is a rare gem!

As she has always been, Dr. Burks showed me respect and treated me with dignity. She goes over my lab results with me in a thorough manner and makes sure I understand everything she has discussed with me. Dr. Burks continues to be the most knowledgeable physician by whom I've ever been seen without ever treating me in a condescending manner. It is not an exaggeration for me to say that I will be eternally grateful for being treated by Dr. Burks, and I hope our doctor/patient relationship is one I will always be able to count on.

Somewhat not prepared for my visit. Very nice, but would be more effective if better prepared. Flipping thru records in a hurry does not always give the current situation. It was left to my memory to defend some of her decisions. She is knowledgeable but repeats and rehashes things that I thought were settled. Wishy-washy about her decisions, based on current research that makes her decisions. Just informing you of my concerns.
