He is a great Dr and has been around a long time. He does not beat around the bush, which helps me. He encourages me to be more proactive in my health. I am trying back on track. At times, scheduling is an issue. I showed up twice for appointments that were "bumped" as they called it..meaning cancelled and moved 2-3 months away without notifying me. OTHERWISE he is great with my diabetes and his nurse is awesome! She goes the extra mile to help too

I like Dr Burks. He is a good doctor. However his staff is horrible. They are rude. When Dr Burks wanted to see me in 2 weeks,they ignore scheduled me for 3 months and would not listen. They never fax my prescriptions until I repeatedly remind them. Today,again, my renewal on my insulin has not been faxed to tge pharmacy. It has been over a week. Now office is closed for the holiday. It's March 19th, what holiday! Dr Burks needs a discussion with the staff about customer service!
