      I have been a patient of Dr. Kelly Burgess for years now. I trust her and I can talk with her about any health problem I may have. She treats me with respect and doesn't ever seem to think my issues are not important. She is a big plus to UK Healthcare.

      Dr Burgess displays great care and concern for me. She listens intently to my concerns, asks clarifying questions, and explains what is going on and how we should react. She also explains what to look for and expect in the coming months. I have never had a doctor that completely listened to me and valued my concern and opinion. She is the kind of doctor that everyone seeks to find.

      I go to Dr. Burgess because I trust her with my health. She's always a good listener, caring, and has never given me any reason to go to another doctor. Her examine room manner is exceptional and I feel like she cares about the people she treats. I've referred the family to her as well. She is a great representative of UKHC.

      I almost hate to recommend Dr. Burgess because I don't want her to have too many patients, but she really is the best doctor I have ever had. She is patient, intelligent, compassionate, and knowledgeable.

      Dr Burgess is exceptional. I have never had a doctor as wonderful as she is abs my entire KY family goes to see her now. She is consistent with getting to the bottom of health issues, goes out of her way to make sure play health is a top priority. She is transparent and thoughtful. I recommend her all the time and hope she is my doctor for the rest of my life. Truly. She also is a clear leader at the office and inspires a working culture that is like family. As a patient I can feel that when I enter the office. The teamwork she motivates is superb - this office would not be the same without her settting a high standard for all of the team to provide best in class patient service. I trust her with my life, my children's and all the people closest to me. The rating I would have given is much higher than very good' - she is exceptionally good - the very best.

      The lack of recommendation comes the difficulties I had following up directly with my physician or knowledgeable staff after prescription of new medication. The call system is terrible and leaves one stress and anxious waiting for answers and frustrated with the back and forth and multiple staff.
