Every doctor I spoke with for twenty years, told me I had epilepsy and prescribed large quantities of medications to counteract my "seizures". The side effects of the medication caused me to live in a haze and feel unlike myself. Dr Burrows was the only doctor to listen, take time and think about my situation. His insights ultimately lead to me going off the unwanted medications. I wish I had met him and his office staff twenty years ago.

Clearly knows his stuff, but bedside manner hugely in need of work.

Dr. Burroughs absolutely saved my family. My mom couldn't get out of bed, stand up from a chair, lift her leg high enough to step up on a curb. After several visits to different doctors and told everything from "it's your age" to "there's nothing wrong with you" or "you have arthritis." None were accurate. Someone finally pointed us to Dr. Brent Burroughs who found something very real called myopathy. He treated her and saved her from on her way to a wheelchair. We owe him everything!

Very kind and understanding of the elderly population

I had searched around and finally found a Dr I could see sooner then later. I found him to be delightfully pleasant and very detailed in helping me with my medical problem. He was very helpful ordered testing I needed to have done, to determine my condition. I would referr any of my friends to him. I found him to be an excellant Dr. Thank you Dr Burroughs

Very direct, condescending. I did not appreciate his tone or body language. Patients go to smart doctors to find understanding and possible cure for their ailments. If you want sympathy or feel at ease, he is not the one.

Dr Burroughs is a brilliant man....a little high strung but if you want a good knowledgable physician he is the man....
