Dr. Burke does listen to me. He respects the fact that I understand my own health issues and my body. My treatments are a discussion. Dr. Burke can have a sense of humor to relieve tension and nervousness. Don't be afraid to ask questions or disagree with everything any doctor says.

Simply put, this man should seriously not have a license. The best (and only job) for Dr. Qamar would be in an office cubicle interacting with absolutely no one with zero responsibility over another person's necessary medications. This office is an absolute disgrace.
