I found Dr. Burrows' office staff professional, well-organized and appropriately charming. They made preparing for a necessary, inconvenient and unpleasant (I dread the after-effects of anesthetic) more tolerable. The only annoyingexperience I had was that prior to the procedure the anesthesiologist seemed to have mistakenly assumed I might find being teased with lightly sexualized innuendo entertaining. Not so. I don't believe that belongs in any professional relationship and I'd like to think she was just having a bad day and somehow read my likely receptiveness to it as being 180' in the wrong direction.

Worst Dr visit ever. He was rude, condescending and judgemental. Even when someone is having a bad day they still have a obligation to be professional when at work. If an individual can not then they should be taking a sick day from work.

I didn't spend much time with Dr. Burrows, but he's the first doctor who ordered all the tests for me for my lifetime intestinal problems, and for that I am VERY grateful. He said, "You're 36 years old and you've neverhad these tests done?!" That made me laugh. Thanks for listening to me and taking care of me, Dr. Burrows!

The doctor was lecturing me about my weight before I could even sit down after entering his office and harped on it for the first few minutes of my appointment (even though it's completely unrelated to why I was there). Heseemed incredulous about everything I said, and his overall attitude toward me made me not trust him or want him to treat me. He was curt and his bedside manner was abhorrent, maybe he was having a bad day but being rude is uncalled for- he actually brought me to tears. The student he was helping was very nice and professional, thankfully most of my appointment was spent with him; I hope he doesn't adopt Dr. Burrows bedside manner.

Dr. Burrows is very straight up and will tell you like it is. I LOVE Doctors like that. I went for severe stomach pain and will be having a upper endoscopy next month. At the end of my visit he askedme, "what is your biggest concern about the problem you told me about". He listened to my input and gave feedback. I like Dr.Burrows and he will be my gastro Doc from now on.

Although Dr. Burrows seemed knowledgeable about his field and the first visit went well, a procedure I had sent me home with no comfort and little information. One of the nurses had said he's often late, but he wasn't this time.In recovery, I was told something that needed explaining. My family member re-asked the question to the nurse who told her she was making the situation worse. Dr. Burrows came in and said he didn't have time to talk with me, and while I was crying walked away saying "well at least you're not dying" loudly enough for other patients to hear. It was embarrassing and left me feeling as though he was purely a clinician without regard to the patient as a person. Additionally, my discharge instructions said follow up if necessary, indicating that my symptoms were to be disregarded because they weren't attributed to a diagnosis.

Very arrogant and horrible bedside manner. Dr. Borrows is very abrupt. Seems to know a lot about my condition, so I will go back to see him for another visit.

When I initially saw Dr. Burrows I liked him. He seemed interested in my health and overall well-being. The last few times I've seen him have been unpleasant due to the following: 1. Appointment was rescheduled at the last minute, eventhough it was Dr. Burrows who mandated that he could not refill my prescription unless he saw me for a check-up first. Scheduling with him is near impossible due to him being out of the office or unavailable a lot of the time. When he does book appointments, they usually end up being cancelled at the last minute, with the next available appointment not being for a few weeks after the cancellation. 2. Dr. Burrows was then late in seeing me after rescheduling the appointment. 3. Dr. Burrows was texting on his phone during my appointment. 4. I felt my concerns were not being taken seriously. 5. Dr. Burrows expressed his lack of interest in writing me a referral to see a different type of specialist. 6. Dr. Burrows was condescending and clearly disinterested in me as a patient.

I have never written a bad review in my life but I feel it's necessary to AVOID this doctor at all costs. He was the most condescending person I have ever met. Talked down to me the whole appointment, almost tothe point of laughing at me when I described my symptoms. Don't waste your time seeing this doctor - he is so rude. Extremely appalled by his professionalism.

Well First time used zocdoc and will be the last because I went 25 min early to my 9am appt that I received numerous confirmation on and when I went to check in I was not ever entered and the oddthing is I called the office to confirm the and spoke to someone who was In charge and confirmed they received my entry and would enter it in. The way dr burrow handled my case and the actual 9am appt that showed up was unreal he seems stressed out and treats his new employees no better than the patients very arrogant and zero empathy. The office person was new first week checking in patients and very nice and apologized I could feel her empathy and could not believe a doctor could be so cruel and uncaring. I decide that this is not the doctor for me. I will never return there and think that he needs to be held accountable for his actions

I was scheduled for a noon appointment, and after waiting 30 minutes without seeing any other patients in the waiting room, I explained to the receptionist that I was on my lunch break and asked if my appointment would be startingsoon. After about 5 more minutes (and still no other patients to be seen), Dr Burrows saw me, and seemed a little huffy that I was irritated by the delayed appointment start time. After that he was very quick to draw conclusions about my symptoms without fully listening to what I was describing to him, rushed through the appointment, and over the course of my visit and subsequent tests, he seemed extremely disinterested in finding or treating a diagnosis. I had to call his office every time I wanted a follow-up on test results or to try something new, and overall it was a colossal waste of time and money. After 6 months of frustration, I ended up seeing a different GI doctor and was squared away after the first visit... and for about 1/3 of the price.
