Being under Dr. Burnette's care has always been a great experience. He is compassionate, a great listener, and very well-versed in his field. Contacting him and his office has always been a breeze. Everyone is quick to respond and very helpful.

The doctor gave my child very little of his time. He was in a big hurry the whole time we were in there. He didn't want to listen to any of my concerns nor did he have time to talk to my child.

The only concern I have is that there was no follow up from the doctor once the test results came in. I had to contact the doctor to get follow up.
