Once again, Dr. Burks hit it out of the park! She always makes me feel like she truly cares about my health. In contrast to some of my other healthcare providers, she never lectures me or makes me feel stupid. Her empathy level is off the charts, and she makes every effort to clarify any issues I might not understand. When I walk out of her office, I say a prayer of thanks to God for bringing this wonderful physician into my life!
