Dr. Burns is an amazing doctor! The experience was great overall, although we had to wait a little while but we were squeezed in so I expected it. My son is complex and she takes her time which I greatly appreciate. He also received multiple referrals and I was impressed that I got a call the same day with all the information that I needed. I would recommend Dr. Burns and her staff any day!

Dr Burns is very knowledgeable however her bedside manner lacks warmth & interest. Most lacking competence is the admin staff in charge of ordering test, calling in necessary prescriptions or referring child to specialists. It is beyond their capability to carry out these routine duties. I would not recommend this dr and we plan to leave the practice.

Today was my first time bringing my daughter who is a year old to Dr Burns office and it was a HORRIBLE experience. The staff is so ignorant and rude. They talk to you and look at you like your stupid and I would never even take my dog to this place. Dr Burns doesn't interact with the children at all, she speaks so low that you can't hear her then gets an attitude when you ask her to repeat her self. I have never felt so uncomfortable or belittled at a doctor's office like this in my life!

Over two hour wait time in a small crowded waiting room. After being told to get there as soon as I could arrived before numerous other patients yet was seen afterwards. When I asked why I was told to come right away i was told that the staff was filling openings...if I had to wait two hours clearly there was no opening to fill. The insurance person had not verified my insurance properly during my wait. I won't be going back

If you like being talked down to or accused of being a bad parent then this is the place for you, otherwise stay away. This was my first visit to them and everything was well in the beginning with the nurse who was nice and pleasant but that all changed when the doctor came in who was demeaning and rude. I will be looking for a new doctor who is friendly and cares about the patient.

Dr. Burns says...

I have had the pleasure and the privilege of practicing pediatrics for 25 years. I chose pediatrics because I felt I could do the most good as patients growing and their families culture was developing.

I attended New York city public schools and had  Regents Scholarship to attend college at the City University of New York.  I went to medical school  at Stony Brook University which is part of the State University of New York. I did my residency on Long Island at Nassau County Medical Center. Growing up in NY and attending public school exposed me to other children from many different backgrounds.  As the grandchild of immigrants, I always found this fascinating and often inspiring. 

I had a National Health Service Corps Scholarship to attend medial school and worked for 2 years in rural South Carolina, in the low country to pay this back.  I then joined my husband in Miami while he finished his training.  I worked as a hospitalist at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.

After we moved to Deland I worked at the Volusia County Health Department while I saved money to open my own office.  I opened a solo practice in 2010 in Orange City.  

My personal interests are travel, knitting, dance and spending time with my two dogs, Duncan and Hugo who sometimes come to the office with me.  Hugo is the extrovert, I call him "Mr Personality" !
