I like this clinic and overall have positive experiences here. This visit was rushed and a bit disorganized but that can be the nature of a same-day sick visit.

Dr. Burton has always shown our family the very best care! I've recommended her to friends for years because I trust her knowledge and opinion. She has proven to repeatedly lead us in the best direction in the care of our youngest, our baby with heart disease. Dr. Burton has worked above and beyond to address the unique and critical intricacies involved in care. It's important to our family that our already loved doctor took extra time to understand when and where we need to check health for possible abnormalities.

My understanding was that they were short staffed this day. I felt extremely rushed. The doctor only stated recommendations, did not ask for questions. She was talking with such speed I felt uncomfortable asking a question.

Dr. Burton does not listen to her patients or parents. She interrupts and over talks me every time we are with her.

The provider doesn't listen very well to my concerns, and doesn't answer them fully. She jumps around a lot and doesn't seem overly concerned about the healthcare of my child.

The provider was very scattered and disorganized and fluctuated between her diagnosis, making it very confusing and unsettling for me as a parent to understand what was happening to my child.

She was very kind and personable, very down to earth and just a sweetheart.
