    Dr. Burgess and I talked about diet as well as my overall health. She provided information that will be helpful in my future eating habits. She looked over some lab reports that I brought in and suggested some that she wanted to run.

      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.
