Dr. Burton is always very pleasant & very helpful..
A very caring physician. I have been a patient for at least 15 years and he always is pleasant and caring.

Dr. Burton is the best primary care physician in Gainesville. He is thorough, attentive, positive, and assertive in his approaches to medical problems.

I have been a patient of Dr Burton's for several years and have always been extremely happy with his approach to medicine which simply stated is that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! He is willing to take the time to ask questions and listen to my concerns. I am treated more like a friend than just a "medical chart." Both Dr Burton and his nurse Kelli are reachable via email on the Patient Portal and they respond in a timely manner.

My cardiologist recommended Dr. Burton & said he was the best in town. Dr. Burton has never disappointed. He took care of my whole family with tremendous respect & tenderness. Hospital staff told me he spends long hrs. with his patients. To give you an idea of just how atypical he is, he reserves an hr. every day (which might be a lost billable hr. for him) to facilitate his patients should they have an emergency. Last, but not least, he's a genius & will improve your health with his knowledge.

I have know Dr.Burton since his training days. Even then, he was a studious and accomplished physician. He has been my internist for the past 10+ years. As a physician myself, I'm not sure there is a better recommendation. He and his entire staff, especially his nurse Kelli, have always been available and accommodating. His medical expertise is reassuring yet he retains a holistic approach to his patient interactions.

Dr. Burton is one heck of a guy. He is our family doctor! He has a wonderful patient outlook and explains health situations in easy terms. He takes time with each visit and his nurse Kelli is wonderful also. Appointments are available for same day situations. Dr Burton also makes patient visits to NFRMC if you are admitted.

Dr. Burton is an outstanding physician. He is knowledgeable, he takes time with patients to make sure that their concerns are understood and properly addressed. He explains lab results in a manner that is meaningful and easy to understand. He makes recommendations to patients to improve their overall health. His office is the best run office of any physician I have ever been to.

Great experience. Everyone was wonderful. They took their time & went over everything with me.

Dr Burton is thorough and interested in his patients. My appts have always been prompt and Dr Burton and his nurse are readily available (he provides his patience with his email and responds promptly). Big contrast to my previous physician (for the better). He was recommended by two of my personal friends who are physicians.
in Gainesville, FL |
Dr. Burton has successfully diagnosed medical issues I have had in the past. He always takes time to ask and answer questions. The office is always clean, staff are professional, and wait time is minimal. I have recommended Dr. Burton to friends and family members.
