I like Dr Burchfield overall. She is kind but firm when addressing health issues. I do think she could take a more holistic approach versus over prescribing medicines. Her office staff however are extremely rude and it is almost impossible to get a quick appointment, much less a same day. Even with an appointment wait times can be very long.
Thank you for your feedback. I have an excellent new office staff, a beautiful new office, more appointment times available in our new clinic (which includes excellent nurse practitioners/ physician assistants , and an additional physician). We all work as a team to optimize your patient care and do our best to offer prompt appointments. I am learning more about integrative medicine and incorporating it more and more into patients' treatment plans, especially for those who prefer this.

Dr. Burchfield says...

I am a board certified family physician, practicing in North Alabama since completion of my training at Tuscaloosa Family Medicine Residency in 2001.  I graduated cum laude from Auburn University in 1993, and then attended the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine from 1993 to 1995.  I moved back home to Huntsville in 1995 to spend time with my mother who was battling cancer, and completed medical school at the UAB School of Medicine Huntsville campus, in 1998.  I am honored to serve as board members for both Madison Hospital and First Community Senior Select, and as an admission committee member for the Rural Missions Program at UAB School of Medicine Huntsville campus .  Outside of the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my beloved family, including my husband of nearly 23 years, and our two teen age sons. I love spending time volunteering with my church, as well as traveling, dancing, yoga, fitness classes, skiing, hiking, and spending time with my friends, extended family and pets.
