Dr Burkett has been my doctor for over 20 years. She and her team has been laser focused on staying on top of my health. Her PAs and NP are top notch personable and caring professionals. I never feel like just another patient with this practice and Dr Burkett is one heck of a good doctor.

When I moved to Denver in 2009 I begin seeing Dr. Burkett and I have been with her all these years and she is one of best doctor's I have had. Her office staff is great and when you need to get in right away with illness, her office staff is great, she has great Nurse's and I so glad that I found her.

I have been a patient with Dr. Burkett since 2000. She is an amazing doctor. I am very sorry to see the negative posts. The one thing I like the most about Dr. B is that she never rushes and I never feel like she doesn't have time for me. My entire family now has her as their primary care physician and loves her. I have been in the healthcare field for 20 years and she is one of the best physicians I have ever worked with or been a patient with.

I have been going to Dr. Burkett for over 20 years. She has always taken very good care of my health. She is an excellent doctor and is very thorough in her examinations and diagnosis of any health issues that I have had. I highly recommend Dr. Burkett

Chose this practice because it was only 5 mins from my house. I normally see one of the NP's, Lora, and I like her. However, today I saw Dr Burkett and was very disappointed. She treated me like a number. Was very succinct. Disappointing experience. Also, scheduling appointments is difficult. Because when you call, 5/6 times you don't reach the receptionist. Rather it goes into a voicemail and you have to wait, sometimes till the next day just to hear back to see if they have room.

Dr. Burkett is basically unavailable. Has three NP's service her practice. Must leave messages to gain a response from office. RN is rude. Please don't waste your time. Get a professional, compassionate MD that actually sees you.
