I cannot rank Dr. Burns low enough. I went into labor spontaneously on a Saturday night and Dr. Burns was on call. We had called ahead and they told us to come in at 9pm so she knew I was coming. However, when we arrived she was at home putting her kids to bed. The nurses were able to determine I was 5cm on arrival but Burns still didn’t show up for another 2 hour at 11pm! She then checked me and left, never once asking me about the kind of birth I wanted, if I had questions or anything. Even though I was the ONLY person in labor that night I didn’t see her agin until 5am Sunday when my baby was born! Not onece more in 6hours of labor. Had she had the decency to show her face prior maybe we would have know my baby was sunny side up and we could have tried other birthing positions, but we didn’t know nor did the nurses know until the baby was born and I had a 3rd degree tear. Run as far away from her as possible.

She coerced me into a VBAC when I wanted a repeat c-section. When the baby couldn't come out she performed an episiotomy without consulting me. That still didn't work so I finally got the c-section.

I highly recommend her so much that I almost don't because I don't want to share her. I went through a lengthy and rough process to conceive and Dr. Burns was not only there for each and every appointment (and call) but she made me feel so incredibly comfortable. My questions were always answered, my fears were met with kindness and she compassionatly delivered my amazing miracle baby boy. I am so thankful for everything Dr. Burns did for my family and continues to do with her fantastic care.
