Dr. Burr has been my pulmonologist for about 15 years, his advice has always been dead-on and he explains everything in layman's terms. Dr. Burr always listens and takes his time with me and my family. Presently I have stage 3 lung cancer and together we decided no extra treatment because of several other health problems. He is honest and does not hand out insincere advise.

This experience was simply a one year "touch base" visit about sleep apnea treatment that is going well. Dr. Burr is always wonderful to speak with, and is encouraging.

After 6 months of treatment and not getting any better, we asked Dr. Burr to take over because he listened to me and seemed to see me as a person, not trying to fit me into the box they wanted. One week after the bronchoscopy I was 75% better and ready to reduce meds.

Dr. Burr was and always is very conscientious. He is very verbal, which is what I like in a physician. He never seems rushed and takes time to ask me questions about how I am feeling. He also asks about other things in my daily life that could contribute to health issues. He is very kind and displays a great deal of knowledge.

My first ever visit with Dr Burr and had an excellent first impression. He was caring, considerate, non-judgmental, listened well, was articulate and told me things I didn't know, and spent enough time. What might have taken him from a 9 to a 10...would be if he was a little more up on my extensive & complicated medical history...and if he'd asked me a little more pointedly exactly what I wanted out of the appointment. But he absolutely was excellent and I was very happy & satisfied.

After not seeing Dr. Burr directly for a of couple years, it was nice to see that he remembered details going back to as early as our first interactions. Since we only meet on a yearly basis, usually, I understand it must be impossible to remember everything about every patient, but I respect those types of little details. It says to me that he takes interest and truly cares about his patients. Thank you for that.
