I called 5 times in 2days before I got a nurse. My Dr was out. They did not listen to what my Dr had told me about a different rx for UTI if it didn't work. Receptionists were polite but nurses awful. Less 3 o'clock on a Friday. Well, I am still in pain and my us was neg except for some blood. I asked him what I should do if it is neg and he said drink more water. He said he would call me with results but did not. I told nurse and Dr I do not use the portal now. So no excuse there. Ugh bad experience all around. Still in pain!!!

I first met Dr. Burkhardt while I was in the hospital. I've been coming to this office for years and couldn't be happier with all the employees, including the nurses and Drs. When my Dr. retires I'm hoping Dr. Burkhardt will become my Dr. I've always been happy with this clinic. I feel very lucky to have them in my corner. Thank You

Very Nice Doctor

This was the first time I'd seen Dr Burkhart as my doctor was not available. It's to be expected that Dr Burkhart wouldn't have known my medical history but he provided me with excellent care.

I have never been happier with my health care than I am right now. A++

Dr. Burkhardt was wonderful to have as a Doctor!
February 26, 2019
The exam was not as thorough as I would have expected. Just enough to explain what may be present without really getting to the source. This leaves me to deal with it and if it doesn't go away, to come back in for further examination.

Dr. Burkhardt seems to take my individual needs into account when I have seen him
February 20, 2019
