Dr. James Burt has been treating me and my parents since the early 1970's. He has always been thorough with examinations, diagnoses, prescriptions, and treatments. I've always benefited from his care. His empathy, listening and communication skills, and timely work are outstanding. In approximately 44 years under his watch, I've never had any issues with him, and he has often seen me on short notice. This man passed up a promising career in the NFL to become a doctor. The NFL's loss is our gain.

Dr. Burt has been my family's physician for many years and always treats us with concern, kindness and in a professional manner. He listens carefully to whatever we say regarding the problem and is excellent at diagnosing and treating the cause. He has referred us to other doctors when we needed specialists and these doctors are always excellent. I would recommend Dr. Burt to anyone who needs a family physician
