I told my friends how impressed I was with Dr Burkhardt.
August 12, 2022
Dr. Burkhart is a very caring and professional physician. He gives you the time that you need. He listens and he answers all your questions and concerns. He explains his plan and your healthcare issues very well in a way that you as a patient can understand it.

Dr. Burkhardt always listens to any questions I have and addresses them in a very friendly manner. The check in is easy and the wait is short to get into the doctor's office. Very pleased.

I am very please with Avera and the health care people they employ!
August 10, 2021
Dr. Burkhardt is a real blessing. I've never had a doctor listen so attentively and arrive at accurate diagnosis and effective treatment so quickly. Very confident in his care.
August 10, 2021
Dr needs to remind pt. to go to lab instead of me having to ask the nurse who came in later if he ordered labs.
August 10, 2021
Dr Burkhardt has excellent bedside relationship with his patients!
August 10, 2021
Avera's computer system was working very poorly. My nurse was able to access it a few minutes and the doctor not at all. This hindered the care I received as he could not see my record.
August 03, 2021
Keep up the nice work
July 20, 2021
Thank you for everything
July 13, 2021
The people at Avera are nothing short of incredible.
June 29, 2021
For being a new patient the visit seemed fairly short
June 29, 2021
I don't feel the doctor really listens to what I have to say as his notes show things that were not talked about and things he obviously did not listen closely to what I said. Unfortunately I feel I need to find a different Doctor something I have never had to do before.
June 29, 2021
Very quick to prescribe meds I needed and followed up after test results came in that I was in fact on the right medication
June 29, 2021
Dr. Burkhardt and his team are top notch! I always feel like my health is in good hands when working the team.
June 29, 2021
Very patient friendly, doctor knew my medical history.
June 22, 2021
No appointments available when actually needed; in light of my medical hx and my family medical hx my skin lesions warranted a dermatology referral. Fortunately I have a PPO.
June 22, 2021
This was my first visit to Internal Medicine. Henceforth Dr. Burkhardt will be my primary physician.
June 22, 2021
Everyone was very helpful and courteous look forward to going back in nine months
June 22, 2021
Appointment was not with my primary doctor as he was not available. Felt very comfortable with different doctor.

Was told I need to do PT. Called to schedule and earliest I can get in is two weeks from now. Not an issue at the clinic. Staff were very accommodating. Thanks.
May 18, 2021
very impressed with the service,care,respect that this provider shows as compared to others
May 18, 2021
Great customer service!
April 27, 2021
the nurse was not very personable, she did not respond to conversation. I do not feel like she really showed the CARE standards avera is known for. She made me feel like i was an inconvience.
April 20, 2021
I drive from Sioux City because everything about Avera is top notch. From the time you step in the doors until you leave-everybody is very nice and so helpful. The nurses explain what's going to happen and give you a timeframe-so I'm not sitting around waiting & wondering. Everything is on time and you are so efficient. It's like this every time I have an appointment. Probably the most important thing is the entire staff makes you feel welcome and at home, they do not act like you are just another patient and are a burden to them. And today, I received a call asking how I was doing-the follow up is great. My girlfriend came to drive me home after my procedure yesterday and she was so impressed with everything, she wants to switch her physician to one in Avera. Again, I can't compliment you enough, thank you.
April 20, 2021
Keep up the great care
April 20, 2021
Needless to say! A tremendous doctor to say the least!
April 13, 2021
The provider was great & to me the only improvement needs to be in signage of where to go & speed of checking you in
April 06, 2021
Provider was 35 minutes late. Spent ten minutes with me snd beat me out of the parking lot. I am aware I had been seen by another provider recently but he really provided minimal evaluation.
March 30, 2021
Enjoy Dr. Burkhardt, great to talk to and thorough.
March 23, 2021
Good doctor. He listened to me reassured me he is here to help me get answers

Avera has always treated me very well and I really appreciate that
February 09, 2021
Dr. Burkhardt was wonderful and his nurse was very professional. I also want to speak praises to your x-ray staff and to the gentleman (I'm bad with names) who scheduled my appointments....also the lady who checked me in. They were also friendly and professional. You have an excellent staff.
