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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

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" !

Dr. Burns' Care Philosophy

I firmly believe in a narrative approach to medicine, I enjoy letting my families tell their own stories. I have an interest in treating children with ADHD and helping all children maintain a healthy weight. 

My practice will be transitioning to a Direct Pay model over the coming months.
