Dr. Burke is a very caring, compassionate man. There are no questions too small and will spend as much time with you as needed. he recently visited me while in the hospital post surgery just to see how I was doing! He truly cares. I would trust him with my life, and have!
Philadelphia, PA |
During three visits to AMH 2014-2016, I was seen by Dr. Burke. During all occasions, I was left with no diagnosis. Following my last hospital visit, I visited a neurologist (who coincidentally practices with D.B.) Within 10 minutes of sharing the symptoms I've experienced for 2 yrs with the new neurologist, a correct diagnosis was made. During all three visits with D.B., he was rude, dismissive and remarkably inadequate.
