Patient Comments (5)
in Portland, OR |
I have seen dr patricia Buford for about 3 years. I have had difficulty from the start getting information about my health, test results or getting the doctor to call me back. This last visit she sent me for an ultra sound for thyroid mapping after surgery. Then sent me for biopsy. But she is unwilling to call me to talk of the results. Will not give me test results. And her staff is not able to explain any of this to me. I refuse to blindly let a y doctor treat my health in this manner.

I have been with Dr. Burford since the mid-90's as a patient and I have always found her to be genuinely interested in my well-being, as well as being a very good diagnostician. I would have no hesitation recommending her.

Dr. Patricia Burford is excellent. Great personality, and wonderful ethics- very patient centric. She zeroed in on something that was very out of balance with me and I'm excited to start correcting this problem. I have many things wrong with me, but no one else had come across this yet. I think she might be the best in her field in the PAC NW, for sure. Her staff is equally excellent.

Dr. Burford is both knowledgable and caring. She takes time to go over all of my treatment options so I clearly understand my healthcare choices.

Dr. Burford takes care of me. You feel you are a VIP. I only see her once a year for a marathon of tests to monitor my thyroid and diabetes and osteopenia. Always leave feeling well. She is smart, compassionate, and funny. We can talk dogs, horses, and thyroid easily. Glad I found this doctor years ago, she is hands down the best doctor to see you if panicking over possible thyroid problems. She is keeping my endocrine system working. Busy though, appts. can be tough to get so call early.
