Dr. Basil Burney is an outstanding endocrinologist. When I had my thyroidectomy and lost my parathyroids, he helped to get my levels back up and when the FDA recalled my parathyroid injection, he made sure I had another plan in place to keep me out of the hospital. He also advised me on how to get my diabetes and cholesterol under control. I really appreciate how he would call me directly with results or if I had any issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Burney.

The first time meeting with Dr. Burney, I was extremely pleased with his professionalism and above all his bedside manners. He has always entered the room with a friendly smile on his face that showed you compassion and concerns for your health. Dr. Burney is an outstanding Endocrinologist who has nurture my Thyroid disorder and my Diabetes. I am so thankful and very appreciative to Dr. Burney for his understanding and support in directing me on the right pathway of my health issues. Dr. Burney takes the time to listen to you, explain things to you and most of all a doctor who will take good care of you. He is trustworthy and I am grateful to God and blessed to have had him as my Doctor. I recommend anyone who is in need of an excellent Endocrinologist, he is that Doctor. He will truly be missed, not only by me but many others also. I sincerely thank you Dr. Burney for everything you done for me.

My husband and I trust Dr. Burney. He takes his time explaining medicines and what he wants to achieve with them, as well as conditions his patients have so that he/she can understand how to take care of themselves. His demeanor and attitude is open to his patients, so that he/she can feel comfortable asking questions. I will definitely recommend him to my family, friends and anyone who asks about the best endocrinologist in Montgomery. Thank you Dr. Burney!

I have been a patient of Dr Burney for over 6 years. When you need help with any of your medical supplies, he does not care. I have B/C B/S of Alabama and I have Medicare. I was trying too get my Decom G-6 because I have to stick my fingers 7 or more times a day. Well his nurse took it over and did not send the paper work to BC/BC. Dr Burney made no effort to help me with this situation. She told all kind of lles so I left for my safely

Amazing doctor! He listens and is very thorough. He doesn't rush you in and out and will do what he can to help. It's hard to find doctors willing to listen and help without treating you like you don't know when something is wrong with your own body.
