This was my first visit and I didn't know what to expect. I was undergoing eye problems that to me were unusual and concerning. The doc did a thorough exam of my eye and reassured me that the condition was notunusual and did not appear serious. His "bedside manner" was so reassuring. He also updated me on eye treatments that were available that would address other conditions. It was good to know the options!

My visit was WONDERFUL! I was a new patient so I arrived early to do paperwork other than the ones they mailed me to find out that was it. They took me back RIGHT AWAY and I was home by thetime I was suppose to have my appointment. The doctor was very nice and caring.

I was surprised (in a negative way) to see that they still dilate routinely. I have been to other ophthalmologists who have the technology to avoid the inconvenience of dilating. I budgeted an hour before my next engagement (as is consistentwith my previous ophthalmologists), and once I hit the hour and 15 minute mark and my appointment was still not complete, I had to excuse myself and reschedule the second half of my appointment.

Dr. Burcham was very professional in my yearly eye exam. Liked the fact that I have had the beginnings of cataracts in my eyes and he was letting me dictate the treatment of them . Stated if my vision wasnot impaired the cataracts we would see in a year how they were. Would revisit him if they worsen.

Very much liked Dr. Burcham - but am wondering why my eye has not cleared up with good vision without my glasses. He did say to give it another couple of weeks - and then the RX needs to be correctedso I can see better. When talking to other people, their vision was good right away or soon after. I am a little baffled - did the procedure fail to correct? He also said that after I have the other eye done that I could probably go without glasses - but it is not at the point where I need that one. I am confused.

The tech (Chrystal?) saw me right away, but there was a delay before Dr. Burcham got to me, owing to some reshuffling of some priority patients as I understand. The Dr. apologized for the wait and proceeded to examine my eyesand inform me of an easy to solution to my complaint of blurriness in one eye. And the procedure could be performed in office next week. Super.

I've been a patient of Dr. James Burcham for over 8 years; he is a professional Ophthalmologist. He listens to my medical issues; test me as needed or necessary; then he will explain what he is going to do and recommendas treatments. I have been very happy with him all these years. He has been an instrument of support, very objective and do plan on going back to him, unless I move out of the Denver Metro. I would recommend him highly.

I have been a patient of Dr. Burcham for well over 15 years and have always received excellent care. Dr. Burcham takes the time to explain and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Entire office staff is top notchfrom the woman taking care of paperwork and scheduling to the technicians who perform the preliminary procedures before the exam like checking for glaucoma,performing the refraction exam to examining the eyes and administering the drops. I highly recommend this practice.

I have been going to Dr. Burcham for over 20 years. Both he and his staff are wonderful. They are all very caring and kind individuals. After having clear lens replacement procedure last year, Dr. B and his staff made surethat I knew that I could call him with any questions. I did have a concern that weekend after my procedure, called Dr. B, and he answered his cell immediately and assured me that all was okay. Members of his staff always answer any questions that I have. Dr. B and his entire staff are awesome, and I would highly recommend them. In my opinion, Burcham Eye Care center is "The Best."
