Dr. Burford has been my primary care physician for over 25 years. He always takes time to listen so he can pinpoint the problem and find the best solution. He sets a patient-centered tone for his office and his staff is always friendly and helpful. I don't mind waiting for him because I know he is spending time listening closely to someone else. A good doctor and a fine man all around!

Dr Burford is the best - the Gold Standard. He has a close relationship with his patients and an amazing ability to remember details about them. Dr Burford stays very current on all aspects of internal medicine, and stays up on many of the issues in some specialties. He is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Florida, and there are opportunities to meet young newly-minted doctors who are learning from a very bright, Caring professional who treats his patients like family.

20-year Burford Patient – Apr 12, 2020

Dr Burford is the worst doctor I’ve encountered in my life; he’s a plodder, works slowly, doesn’t like to listen, and loves the sound of his own voice. He’s probably okay as a primary care physician if you don’t have any health issues, but if you’re encountering problems, he’s not for you. Need a referral (some specialists insist on them and some insurances require them)? You’ll wait for a month or more... my current doctor processes them in a day or two. I’ve also gone in for a visit with Burford, have him tell me to come back in three months, only to have his staff tell me that he’s booked out for four and a half months, and that’s the earliest I can be seen (!!). No apologies. He doesn’t want to hear from you, so don’t tell him about your concerns. Much of what passes for the practice of medicine on the island is passable at best, but this is the worst.

I just started going to Dr. Burford and was in agreement with the other 5 star reviews. He was very patient and meticulous. I look forward to more visits in the future with him as my doctor! The only thing I can say negative is that he may be too hard working and have too many patients, so it is more difficult to see him quickly.
