August 08, 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 08, 2021
Dr Burkhardt has excellent bedside relationship with his patients!
August 07, 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 04, 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.

Very patient friendly, doctor knew my medical history.
June 23, 2021
Dr. Burkhardt and his team are top notch! I always feel like my health is in good hands when working the team.
June 21, 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 21, 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 21, 2021
For being a new patient the visit seemed fairly short
June 20, 2021
Appointment was not with my primary doctor as he was not available. Felt very comfortable with different doctor.
June 18, 2021
Everyone was very helpful and courteous look forward to going back in nine months
June 16, 2021
This was my first visit to Internal Medicine. Henceforth Dr. Burkhardt will be my primary physician.
June 16, 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.

May 11, 2021
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.
April 19, 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 16, 2021
Needless to say! A tremendous doctor to say the least!
April 15, 2021
Keep up the great care

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 08, 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 02, 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 25, 2021
Enjoy Dr. Burkhardt, great to talk to and thorough.
March 21, 2021
Good doctor. He listened to me reassured me he is here to help me get answers

February 05, 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.
