Not happy with my visit with Dr. B at all. She is not very understand and pushy... I had a doctor I was seeing for my diabetes for a long time now. She tried pulling me away from that doctor and almost telling me I have to see the one doctor she wanted me to see. why would she care so much who I see as long as I see one. something is not right about her.. very weird

At first I felt Dr. Burciaga would listen and try to help me, but I quickly realized by my second appointment when she spent all of 5 minutes with me and did not pay attention to any of my concerns that that was not the case. It has all been downhill from there...

I liked Dr. Burciaga quite a bit. She was respectful, sincere, considerate and kind. She listened to me when I spoke and recognized my past history of allergies and asthma. She offered the minimum of medications which is exactly what I wanted. I would definitely see her again!

Saw Dr Burciaga for the second time and I am very happy with her attention to detail and her interest in my care. She remembered our previous conversation and goals we had already set for future appointments. She was the first in many doctors that even checked my heart and breathing from symptoms I was experiencing before. I love that she pays attention to details. I'm going to continue seeing her. Thank you Dr. Lucy for being there for me when I needed a real doctor.

She was horrible! She didn't listen to a word I said and treated me like an ignorant child. She even made fun of me as I was leaving the office for walking the wrong way until a nurse pointed me towards the door. I sobbed the whole way home from the appointment.

I will never see this doctor again her bedside manner is awful. She doesn't want to help patients. First impression is the best. If you want a nice doctor who listens don't see her. I was treated awful.

Amazing Dr! She really listens to me and is full of knowledge. Would recommend to everyone!
Tucson, AZ |
Worst experience ever! She was completely dismissive of my symptoms and concerns, spent less than 5 minutes in the room with me and walked out while I was still talking. I wound up needing emergency surgery for an incarcerated hernia. Something I was told by this woman "I was fine and didn't have anything wrong with me" when I explained my symptoms. I would NEVER recommend or trust this completely incompetent "doctor."

Not much of an independent thinker.
