  • Dec 4, 2023

    Dr. Burger was willing to listen, make inquiries, and fully explain everything I look forward to being her patient.

  • Sep 25, 2023

    Dr Burger referred me to a neurosurgeon, wrote the referral and provided my contact information for an easy appointment

  • Sep 13, 2023

    Dr. did not fully listen to questions or answer all questions. Spoke quickly about different diagnoses and treatments and I left confused about what next. She said she would refer me to a specialist but then also that I should see her again, which was also confusing.
