I have been going to Dr. Burkhart for years, he is always kind, compassionate, and makes you feel at ease. He doesn't make you feel rushed if you have questions he takes his time and makes sure he's covered everything. I also like that he personally calls you with negative test results. Highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Burkhart has been my OB/GYN for many years. He is a very caring and compassionate professional who always takes time to listen to any concerns I may have. His patient's health and well-being are his main concern. I am extremely satisfied with him and the Genesee Valley OB/GYN practice overall. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Burkhart truly cares about his patients. He takes time to discuss any concerns and just answer general questions. When I needed surgery a couple of years ago, he was thoughtful and thorough in reviewing my options and addressing my concerns. When the Ob/gyn I had been going to for many years passed away a friend referred me to Dr. Burkhart. I have since referred other friends. Very thankful to have such a caring doctor. Also, the office staff is always friendly and efficient.
