Thankful for Dr. Burt and his nurses for sticking with me to figure out what is going on, for being patient and hopeful. They spent a lot of time with me even though I'm sure it's a busy time of the year and I appreciated it a lot. They made me feel like I shouldn't give up yet on finding what is going on with me.

Dr. Burt was so compassionate not only to my physical problems but also reached out to issues with my son whom he also has treated in the past. Very nice man and a great Doctor! Bless him!
