Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Burch II "I feel strongly that if patients have placed their trust in me for their care, I have a great responsibility to spend the time, energy, personal resources and care to come up with an accurate diagnosis and ultimate successful treatment. Whenever possible, it is my personal conviction that the most minimally invasive treatment is for the best. 

I feel that it is my duty to spend much time in continuing education, the reading of medical journals and attending specialty meetings to remain engaged with the current best medical and surgical advances to provide optimum, compassionate care to all of those under my charge.

My personal philosophy is to treat my patient as I would want to be treated, in all phases of their treatment.

I have never had a moment's hesitation to offer to send a patient for a second opinion if requested or if I feel it is in their best interest.  "

in Lewisburg, KY |
Dr. Burch II, MD is undoubtedly the finest doctor I have ever met and worked with! One afternoon I discovered a cyst had developed on the back of my right knee. I was able to get an appointment almost immediately. Dr. Burch examined the cyst, explained how this "baker's cyst" developed & what our options were. This exam & discussion time took about 30 mins. Dr. Burch was happy to answer all questions and concerns without any pressure to hurry. The cyst recently disappeared. Hooray!

I absolutely love Dr. Burch ! He is caring and compassionate and always has a smile on his face! My whole family has been to him it seems, and all have had very good results. I would recommend him to anyone.
