Dr. Burrell is a cancer babysitter. My husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and while she chose a good chemo combo for him, she had no thought for his long-term survival. After two years of chemo & steroids and having our questions met with apathy & indifference, we sought out another specialist. Thanks to that specialist's aggressive plan, my husband is now in remission. Dr. Burrell failed to inform us that he was already in remission prior to the transplant.

Dr. Burrell is a top notch Oncologist. I would highly recommend her to others with a cancer diagnosis. I have referred several friends to her for either oncology or hematology concerns and all were pleased with their care. I never feel rushed and she is such a competent physician and a caring person.

Have seen her for years. She is thorough and communicates well. Nursing staff is great. I am very reassured when I see her.
Dr. Burrell has great bedside manner and is responsive to phone calls and emails. However, she dismissed my husband's consistently abnormal blood work and chronic anemia and offered no course of action for trying to find out what was wrong after his tests that she ordered came up negative. We eventually had to identify another doctor on our own, who was able to correctly diagnose him with a very serious disease and successfully treat him (thank God).

Dr burrell is very knowledgable, listens extremely well, doesn't panic or rush to action but follows through in a very timely and thoughtful way. She has very good judgment. She is very pleasant to work with and has a cooperative approach. Her office staff is efficient. She will consult with other doctors as needed.

Dr.Burrell is simply the best. i have stage 4 prostate cancer and every time I see her I feel much better mentally and physical. She is like a second mother to be, I trust her with my life. she is very knowledgeable and shows much compassion. I honestly can't even say enough nice things about her and staff. I enjoy my time there even trough treatment. Highly recommend her,you will be getting a Doctor who deeply cares. Hope she never leaves. Would be very hard going through this without her
