Where do I even begin?! Sent by God about sums it up!!! After years of life and death attacks that had become routine, I never imagined the changes I would experience under Dr. Burton's care. After 40 years, not only had he found the answer that we needed so desperately but he went head to head with the insurance company for nearly a year until they covered the miracle drug...Breo! He also insured the makers would give me enough samples to continue the treatment no matter what. <3 Sandra Prim

I have had experience with a variety of doctors, and specialists tend to be rushed. I have never felt rushed out of an appointment with him. He wants to make sure we check everything.

Today as of 11/8/2018 I received a letter from Dr. Burton terminating my patient/care give relationship for no reason. This is a testament to the lack of care that Dr. Burton and Lakeland show towards their patients. Avoid this provider at all costs!

Very easy to talk to, listens to what you have to say, and gives you easy to understand on what is going on. Just like talking to a friend that you have know forever. very caring and understanding. just a relief to know you have someone in your corner that cares about your problem and about you. so YES I would recommend Dr Burton for any of your pulmonoary problems.

Dr. Burton has walked through my recurring lung cancer from biopsy to following my cancer treatment to dealing with my bronchitis. He is a compassionate physician and very, very thorough, answering any questions and explaining in lay/understandable terminology. He has now become a very important part of my lung cancer team!!!
