Would not recommend. She told my mom she was in renal failure. Soon after, two other doctors shook their heads and said my mom's blood tests were fine and within normal range. She ordered wrong protocol for a test at the hospital and tried to place blame on the radiologist.

After seeing Dr. Smith for a couple years her nurse called to say Dr. Smith did not want me on an anti anxiety med that I have been on for year's & couldn't function without. Dr. Smith should have addressed this with me at an appointment instead of a phone call from her nurse.

Dr Burns is NOT for transplant patients. She almost destroyed my husband's transplanted kidney a few years ago. This was after she said she'd done 100's of these procedures. Then she couldn't even come and face us to explain what happened. Don't go to her.
