Dr. Burton has an -easy bedside manner that puts you at ease immediately. He is down-to-earth, listens carefully to your concerns, and explains things thoroughly to make sure you understand. I am a bit phobic when it comes to medical stuff, and he was wonderfully reassuring and calming. Additionally, the staff is just as amazing, from the front desk staff to the respiratory therapists and other medical personnel.

When I was in the hospital for 3 weeks with sepsis, I already was a patient of Dr. Burton. He would come in everyday, kneel by my bed, take my hand and assure me that I would be okay. It was because of him that I fought to get well. He is a good Christian man who is compassionate, caring and truly cares about his patients. I feel I owe my life to him. Had it not been for him, I don't think I would be here today. God bless him for what he does to help and care for his patients. He is one of my most favorite Drs., and I have many. He definitely listened to his calling in life. Love you, Dr. Burtron. You are the best!!!

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!

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!!!
