I have been seeing Dr. Burket for approximately three years, since I moved from a suburb of Houston, TX, to the small town of La Grange, TX. I find it easy to ask Dr. Burket any questions pertaining to my current condition, whether that be concerns about my prescriptions, my test results, or any medical matter on which I want more information. Dr. Burket impresses me as a physician who shows real concern and consideration for me as his patient. I think of him as a partner in my health care who wants to help me to achieve a consistent state of wellness that will not only prolong my life, but will also add to its high quality. I would recommend Dr. Burket to anyone I know who is seeking a good cardiologist, and I have already done so.

He is kind and very careful to execute a medical plan of action specifically designed for you as a patient. He asks specific questions and listens carefully as he considers your medical requests and any concerns you may have regarding his care for you. Dr. Burket is a Christian and recognizes that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ helps him care for all his patients! He is truly a remarkable and gifted doctor! Thank you for considering Austin Heart. The staff is very friendly and supportive and goes way beyond normal expectations to make sure you are cared for properly. They treat you like family! Thank you, David
