We just love him! He has been home visiting mother every month for a couple years. He is so personable that we have made him part of our family.

I Over a year ago,I was having some back problems My then doctor acted like he was going to help me so he referred me to a sports medicine clinic and after taking Xrays I was handed a script that had written on it. Refer to Chiropractor and was told when my insurance company called me with the name of a chiropractor to give the Sports medicine clinic a call and I was ignored and left standing in the hall. I was devastated to say the least. So I got rid of my PCP and went to Dr Burress.
Thank you for your kind comment.

He seems like he's a decent dr, but my husband and I are not ok with the current immunization schedule for personal, close to home reasons. The whole time I was in the examination room with my 4 month old, he berated me about this! He was very pushy and asked multiple times if I was going to get him vaccinated. How he even managed to listen to his lungs is beyond me. If your a parent like me go see Dr. Mary McNeal in Dickson.
As a pediatrician, I always stress the importance of immunizations. I feel strongly that it is the correct course of action for a child's overall healthcare. I always explain this professionally.
