What People Say About Dr. Emily Burns, MD
Reply
I have been a patient with Dr. Burns for over 20 years and I think she is the best PCP you can get. She is warm, personable, listens when you talk, and doesn't over-prescribe. She genuinely cares about her patients. When I have been sick, she has called me at home just to check up on me. This is a great doctor and if you get to see her, you will not regret it.

Was looking for a new PCP. A different doc in the practice had been recommended, but was full. Got passed to Dr. Burns. So glad I got her. She is thorough, explains things clearly at a level I can understand. Neither talks down to me, nor uses technical terms to impress. Is non-pretentious. Does not recommend unnecessary procedures. Was respectful when I declined a med, but persistent in recommending at it each physical. Never get the sense she is rushing. Personable and professional.
