I was referred to Dr. Burrell by her past clients. I found her to be warm, experienced and able to give information in a mannerable way. She showed me the rubric for Cervicl cancer and made recmendations that my current oncolgist did not.

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.

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).
