Dr. Burseth was very attentive & very caring. He ordered a stress test for me. Nuclear since I'd recently suffered from sciatica & he didn't want me to aggravate my back or legs by prolonged activity on the treadmill. I thought that was very wise & considerate of him.

Dr. Burseth is my cardiologist, specialist. I have never been to a doctor who studies my history and listens to my current report about my blood pressure and activity -- as much as Dr.Burseth. He really knows me and catches up with my current good health and current activities. He is a great support for me. I know he tries to evaluate all of my questions according to his knowledge of things that can help me. Even though my care taker studies and journals all my daily ups and downs, Dr. Burseth knits it altogether and congratulate me for my diet and my exercise. Then according to blood tests, he will call me later and make suggestions. How wonderful, he cares and studies my health. Just like a dream come true. We are a dream team keeping me alive and happy. I am 90 and previously thought I was invincible -- but my body need care and this team is caring for my body. Thank You Dr. Burseth.

It is always pleasure to meet Mr. Burseth. He takes time to discuss any issue. Takes time to review blood work and other health related questions/issues.

Dr Burseth is excellent in every way. He pays a lot of attention to my at-home blood pressure records. He studies my condition and orders blood tests that give evidence for his suggestions. I am 90 yrs old and I have seen a lot of doctors. My opinion, Dr Burseth is the finest doctor ever. I am a lucky man to be his patient. No other doctor ever studied my behavior, my diet, my records, my tests results as much as Dr Burseth studies me. He corrects my poor eating habits with education not criticism; although, my wife appreciates the corrections I am using. I would not be this old, nor this active if it were not for Dr Burseth and my wife. They are my life savers. Dr.Burseth's office staff obviously likes me and make me feel wonderful at every visit. Most of my friends are passed away, but my wife and I both recommend telling every one we know that I have the best cardiologist in the world.
