What People Say About Dr. Rebecca Burfeind, MD

Love Dr. Burfeind! I was referred to her through my primary MD, whom I trust implicitly, and who was also her patient in the past. She is thorough in explaination of the proceedure, empathetic to your pain, responsive to questioning. I was so dicouraged, frustrated and dissapointeded by a previous experience (with a particular Dr.) at the KC pain clinic in Overland Park, that I didn't want to return. So glad she turned that around for me and gave me a better view of this organization that is built to help people in pain. I would refer her to anyone and everyone!

Very good at doing her procedures when she finally gets into the room! Often 2-3 hrs spent in that office!!

I’ve been seeing Dr Burfeind for about 13 years. She does seem rushed sometimes, & I know her clinic has a lot of patients & believe that’s the reason why. Recently, though, I had a particularly serious issue and she was there for me. She’s exceptionally great about explaining details & procedures, which I really appreciate. She’s not always the most empathetic, but I’ve found personally, at least in my case, she was there for me when I was at a particulars low point. I even got a hug from her. ??

I found Dr. Burfeind to have no empathy what-so-ever for me, during a recent extremely painful back medical procedure that she performed on me. She acted very rude, uncaring, unprofessional & talked down to me. I really liked NKC hospital, but I had to find another doctor & hospital. I was so disappointed in this doctor.

I've been see Dr Burfeind going on ten years now. I can't begin to say how much she has helped me! She has always been attentive to my needs and wants. Never rushed me to make a decision on any of my procedures. Some of my dearest friends are see her now for thier ailments. I wouldn't recommend her if I didn't trust her.

Dr Burnfeind performed the Coolief Radio Frequency Ablation for knee pain and was excellent from my first visit to having actual procedure done. She was very kind and thorough explaining every step along the way. The entire team at Kansas City North Hospital Pain Management Center was wonderful providing excellent care. Would highly recommend!!!

Talks down to you, doesn't spend adequate time answering questions, gave conflicting information. The only good thing is that she explains what is happening during procedures. Everything else I am not satisfied with.

She's wonderful! So easy to talk to and understand. She uses reflective hearing to make sure she hears you, she's very comforting and with each procedure (where applicable) she walks the patient through each step of the procedure. Excellent bed side manner! Love her!
