Patient Comments (1)
in Bethlehem, PA |
Dr. Burlew has been my pulmonologist for about 15 years and he literally saved my life in 2004 by diagnosing a rare genetic condition that resulted in cancer. Due to his expert knowledge I got the appropriate care and am cancer free for more than 10 years. Although his is very intelligent and highly educated & experienced, he is very personable and will take the time to talk with you and get to know you as a person, not just a disease.
