Friendly, competent, and efficient! She was perfect!

Dr. Burugu and her staff were extremely professional, friendly, courteous and efficient. They were knowledgeable and helpful, and most of all, reassuring.
Dr. Burugu is personable, knowledgeable, and caring. She addressed my neexplainetook the time to explain the science behind her advice/prescriptions. This was my first appointment with her, and I will come back the next time I need a diagnosis/treatment/meds.
She was super nice, quick, and knowledgeable! When they say she will be with me in a minute - they meant it. Not like every other doctor's office that has you waiting for 10-15 minutes.
She’s by far my favorite Dr. I’ve had in 32 years
She was very nice and helpful. Really listens so she can better help her patients. Really nice woman.
Love her. Very professional and also friendly and warmly inviting. Cares about what she does and definitely the best!
I would say that Dr. Burugu has decent intentions, but is slightly careless and not entirely focused on a patient's well being as much as getting them out within 15 minutes. She did none of the standard things you'd expect in a physical (think checking reflexes and such). All she did was ask if I had any complaints and told me to get some labs.
She is the best and very caring to my needs.
I love her. She's awesome.
a really good and compassionate doctor
Dr. Burugu is an amazing doctor. She is patient, knowledgeable, compassionate, and she really knows how to zone in on the illness at hand. She has a pretty open schedule, and booking online is really easy. I am glad I finally found a really good primary care physician. I recommend her to everyone.
I was really nervous finding a new doctor in atx, and Dr. Burugu made me MORE than comfortable. With a friendly hug too :) put me very much at ease!!
She definitely made sure that I had all of the information that I needed and continuously asked to see if I had any more questions. She seemed rushed like she had many more patients to attend to, but I also felt like I got all the time that I needed and all the information that I needed as well. She paid attention to each symptom and made sure that I had all my options on where to go from there and how to follow up
It was fantastic! Doctor Burugu was very quick, to the point, and I felt very well taken care of. Definitely highly recommended.
Great doctor with lots of knowledge of the body!
I will say, I know what other users mean when they said they felt rushed. While I got into the room really quick, I left just as fast. The doctor ends up going a mile a minute with her questions, and I felt like I wasn't able to explain myself very properly. She had great bedside manner, just a little bit too rushed.
I have never had a PCP as pleasant and caring as Dr. Burugu.
Very nice and professional. Dr. Burugu was very patient as I described my medical condition to her and the various different treatments that I had already explored with other doctors or institutions. She was very thoughtful on her followup questions as well as her recommended course of action.
The advice's from Dr. Sukanya are very helpful.
I absolutely love Dr Burugu. She is kind, considerate, and thorough. When I'm worried about my health, I leave her office assured that I'm medically taken care of.
Advice's from DR. Sukanya are very helpful.
Dr. Burugu was amazing. There was a short wait, however I will definitely be going to her in the future. Very attentive, listened well, and gave me some advice. Would highly recommend.
She is very friendly and understandable my problem and giving me right advice
Quicker than expected, but good overall.
This was my first time visiting this office and I will definitely be back. She is an excellent doctor with very professional, hardworking staff. She answered all my questions in detail and thoroughly explained the type of tests I will be undergoing in order to determine my diagnosis. The clinic was busy but I did not feel rushed as Dr. Burugu made it clear I was the priority at that time. Definitely recommend!
Dr Burugu was the perfect combination of professional and relatable and took care of all of my needs very efficiently. Highly recommend!
Very focused on individual patients' concerns. Also very friendly!
This is my second visit with Dr. Burugu, she is highly professional and cares that you walk out knowing more about your health
Carefully listened to all my symptoms and explained to me what is going on and what is the approach to the treatment. I really loved her staff as well. Great team!
Efficient visit. Was very through in explaining everything to me.
She seems very thorough and passionate about doing best for the patient.
Great doctor! Very helpful.
I didn't find anything particularly wrong with this clinic. They were just generically okay. I've had other doctors in the past with who were better at explaining anything going on, who had a better bedside manner, and a more focused staff. Dr. Burugu and her office were just passable. Somewhere in the middle of the pack.
I was pretty happy with Dr. Burugu for my first few visits. She requests that I get drug tested at ever visit, which I wouldn't mind, but my insurance doesn't cover the tests, so it's all out of pocket. Ouch. Then last time she mentioned before I gave my sample that I couldn't test positive marijuana or cocaine, since she's not prescribing that. That felt pretty judgemental. I'm not a drug user, and if I were, I feel it's important to be able to have honest conversations with my doctor. I think there is a better way to bring up something as important as interactions and substance abuse. I decided to find a new doctor I can have a relationship with.
She is amazing! Calls after the appointment & is very knowledgeable!
Dr Burugu whom I also call my friend, has one of the biggest hearts of any human being I've ever known. Her bedside manner is impeccable. She's caring and calculated. She always has a direct plan to a cure.
Dr. Burugu is an awesome Doctor! She's very friendly and approachable! I feel like I'm in good hands and I'm so glad I picked her.
Dr. Burugu is very efficient. She will go through things quickly. She asked me several times if I had any questions about this, and I did not at the time, so it went well. However, if you do want to ask questions about particular things, try to think of them before she comes in. I understand that as a doctor seeing many patients, she must have several people to treat, but there is indeed a sense of urgency. That all being said, she seemed very helpful and more than willing to answer the questions I did have.
Dr. Burugu has wonderful bedside manner. I have been a patient for years. I do not feel she has one foot out the door when she is with me.
I could not be more pleased with choosing her as my doctor. From the moment she walked in she made me feel comfortable and she was very easy to talk to. She listened to all my concerns and addressed each one. I felt relieved to finally find a doctor like her in Austin. I can tell I'm in good hands.
She very nice and friendly and really showed she cared about my health.
Dr. Burugu is the best---very personable and highly competent
Logical and elegant woman! She held herself with dignity knowledge and compassion. I hope she and I can continue to work together to find solutions to what is ailing me.
Excellent bedside manner- warm, kind, and listens carefully. Dr. Burugu is thorough and follows through on what she says.
I love Dr. Burugu. She's thorough, listens well, and takes the time to understand your concerns and answer your questions. She's wonderful. I moved south and I will continue to drive to see her up north as long as her practice is there.
Dr. Burugu was AMAZING! My experience was positive from start to finish. Dr. Burugu's staff was so friendly and helpful and also quick and efficient; I could tell right away that they worked together as a team very well. Dr. Burugu provided the best service possible. She was very personal and struck-up a conversation right away, I didn't even notice that she had begun my evaluation because we were chatting throughout. She answered any questions that I had and provided expert knowledge in a way that I could understand. For those new patients booking on Zocdoc I would recommend completing the online check-in because you can just provide a physical signature for the information that you filled-out and wait to be called-back. Amazing physician, amazing staff, amazing experience!
Felt so comfortable she give a lot of information. Did not feel like I was a number.
This Doctor is the MOST AMAZING, Compassionate and Knowledgeable one around. She truly cares about her work and patients and her be side manner is MAGNANIMOUS!!! She is a truly loving, humble and kind Doctor. What a refreshing experience! I am GRATEFUL for she and her nurse, Lisa. What a great team! :o)
It was okay, I did feel a bit rushed. However, all of my questions were answered and taken care of quickly.
Dr. Burugu was amazing. I came in for an annual physical and couldn't be happier with the appointments I booked. She was very knowledgeable and asked me multiple times throughout if i had any questions or concerns. I don't normally write reviews, but she deserves it; I highly recommend her
Dr. Burugu and staff are great! This was my first appointment, please note, I booked only 2 hours ahead, and I feel like I've been there for years. That's how kind they all were. The office is very efficient. She LISTENED and ADDRESSED EVERY ISSUE I had, with enthusiasm! I didn't expect to discuss everything but we did, and I appreciate it. I'm definitely happy I chose Dr. Burugu. I feel like I'm in great hands.
I hope she can be more gentle in the future because she made me hurt.
Dr. Burugu makes every attempt to work with insurance companies. She offers suggestions and explains how to maximize what your insurance plan offers. She is kind, informative, and easy to speak with.
Dr. Burugu is hands down the best doctor I've ever seen! She's prompt, accessible, kind, and seems to truly care.
Dr. Burugu was thorough and communicated results on labs and tests immediately. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Burugu was hands down the best doctor I've ever seen. She was patient and very caring. She was understanding and I would recommend her to anybody.
Dr. Burugu was helpful and insightful. She was quick to answer all of the questions that I had. I would highly recommend her services!
She is such a great doctor. Always understands what I need right away and gets me the right prescriptions every time.
She's always great
Dr. Burugu is very good - she takes the time to listen and makes sure that all symptoms are addressed. My only negative experience was with the front desk staff when checking in and checking out - they appeared frustrated and short with people. Plus, I had to call to remind them to call in my critical prescriptions to my pharmacy.
Kind, understanding, patient
Very proficient and a great listener
She was very sweet and very helpful. I will most likely return to her!
Calm, professional, efficient and friendly. Just how a doctor should be.
She was amazing! I'll definitely be back to see her and trust her medical opinion.
I have been seeing Dr. B for a few years now. I absolutely love that she takes time to ask questions and has never rushed me through my appointment. I have to drive a few extra miles since I have moved south; but she is worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Burugu.
It was fine
I was very impressed, she was very personable , this was my st. visit , I was very comfortable , felt as I had been a long term patient.
Dr. Burugu is very attentive. I switched medical insurance to ensure I stayed with her as my doctor. She listens very well to my issues and concerns and answers all of my questions with complete honesty and great suggestions.
My husband and I have been going to Dr Burugu for 5 years. She is very professional and kind and very detailed about all the lab work.. I highly recommend her..
Very professional and has wonderful bedside manner.
Dr Burugu was very thorough and took the time to answer all my questions. She made me feel like I was in very good hands! I'm happy to say I have found myself a great doctor for regular checkups.
I had a great initial appointment with Dr. Burugu but was extremely disappointed when her office refused to refill a prescription she had written during my first visit with her that I have had since college (6 years). Instead of refilling the prescription I needed before traveling I was told that I was required to come in for an office visit to speak with her. I will be finding a new primary doctor unfortunately due to her inability to make healthcare accessible and available to her own patients. I also had to reach out to her office directly after requesting the prescription be refilled by my pharmacy 10 days ago. When I called the office they blamed Walgreens and said they would "look into things". I am sadly disappointed in how I was treated as a patient. I do not have the time nor the finances to take PTO to come into the office for each refill "assessment".
Very pleasant first experience.
Besides being a bit brief, Dr. Burugu was very helpful and thorough.
I love the fact that it really feels like Dr. Burugu cares. I love that she and her staff treated me with respect in a professional manner. I loved my visit so much that I'm making her my PCP. I would definitely recommend her.
She is very polite and she heard to all my issues patiently and she recommended other specialist for my issues .Will surely recommend to my friends .
Dr. Burugu and team were professional and personable. I went in due to a back injury. She reccomended a nearby imaging center where I could get an x-ray the same day for peace of mind. She called me back with the results a hour later. It was a productive day as far as doctors appointments go.
Dr. Burugu was great! She came in and immediately started talking about her likes and family. She made me feel comfortable and was sure to ask if I had any other questions multiple times to makes sure that I asked all my questions. Her staff were incredibly welcoming and helped sort out some insurance questions. The visit was thorough and covered everything that I needed. Definitely will recommend Dr. Burugu to people.
She is good about a) not wasting your time b) getting EVERYTHING you want done done at the same appointment (saving you money) She's definitely QUICK, so if you don't want that, you'll need to find someone else.
She was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable and answered all my questions explain my lab work ! This was my first time coming to her, I am excited that I finally found a good pcp!
Dr. B was great. Very knowledgeable and great bedside manner. I'll be back!
Pleasing personality. Very warm and very helpful. Genuinely cares about her patients.
Dr Burugu communicates very clearly according to patient's requiremnets and advice about precautionary measures to be healthy.I would highly recommend Dr Burugu.
It was an absolute pleasure with Dr. Burugu. Nice to see there are still people that care. HIGHLY Recommended.
Dr. Burugu and her staff was very attentive, and through. She took the time to ask me any questions and LISTEN to my response. I did not feel rushed for time. I have already recommended her to others.
Very professional, courteous and personable. She asked questions and listened to my answers. She seemed eager to help.
Ms. Burugu was extremely thorough but receptive. She saw both me and my girlfriend together for a quick check up, It was our first visit with her, and we will definitely be back.
Excellent Fast care and followup by phone if necessary
Very timely, warm, thorough, attentive.
Dr. Burugu has a wonderful bedside manner. She is, definitely, my pcp.
best doctor ever!!!
Dr. Burugu was very friendly and asked plenty of questions to understand my situation. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a primary care physician.
Knowledgeable and friendly!
Dr B is the best Doctor I have ever had. She takes her time in getting to know me and getting to the root of the issue. She has personally called me to check up on me after I had pneumonia. I can not see ever going to another doctor. She is simply amazing. I fired my previous doctor because of her poor bedside manner. This Doctor spends as much time as I need to fully explain what is going on with my health. Her staff is wonderful too. They will always help me communicate with other doctors when I need to be referred somewhere else. They patiently assist me with my health insurance plan and its limitations.
Always pleasant and informative.
I had a great experience with my first visit with Dr. Burugu and her staff. Her staff is very hospitable, and she herself is very knowledgeable and encourages you to ask questions. She had listened to all my concerns with much patience and helped me address everything. I have insurance plan which needs a elaborate referral process to the specialists but the Doctor and staff were very helpful in getting multiple referrals done successfully in a timely manner. I had the pleasure of switching her to my PCP to continue my care for a chronic illness. NOT ONLY did she make me feel very comfortable but she has the best bed side manners with the biggest heart and compassion for her patients !
Dr. Burugu was friendly and completely non-judgmental, which is important to me and a definite plus. The downside is that I don't feel my experience was very personal and I think healthcare should always be personal. As an example, I came in with a particular concern and the suggestions Dr. Burugu made seemed very one-size-fits all and were made without asking any pertinent questions. All her staff members were friendly and professional and I was seen at exactly my appointment time with no additional wait. I did also have to fill out all my new patient forms for a second time even though I had previously done that online, which was inconvenient. All in all, it was an okay experience, but not ideal and doesn't leave me committed to sticking with his practitioner.
Very accurate and precise to my problems.
I was beyond pleased with my visit. The registration staff were nice and the waiting room nice and cozy. When I met with Sukanya Burugu she was very pleasant and easy to speak to about my physical ailments so she could pinpoint a diagnosis.
Dr B was the first doctor in YEARS to listen to me. What a relief to find a great primary care doctor!
Dr Burugu is professional and has an excellent bedside manner. The staff made me feel comfortable.
I met Dr. Burugu for the first time, and she was very personable, kind, caring, and genuinely cared about my thoughts and opinions. She took the time to address all of my questions, and she provided a list of solutions in almost no time at all. Very professional, but also very warm. Definitely knows her stuff.
My sister recommended Dr Burugu to me, she has been taking care of my sister for more than 2 years and my sister kept asking me to go see this Doctor and finally I did and sure enough very impressed with the care. I was sent into the room with in no time and all my concerns are addressed without rushing me. I have a very complex, difficult medical situation so it is critical that I have an excellent internist who will take the time to deal with and manage significant demands. Dr.Burugu herself is friendly,caring funny and intelligent. Most importantly, she listens to your concerns and addresses them and asks you what you want. I have never had a Doctor who confirms if I got I wanted from the appointment. I also found that her staff is very friendly and eager to help you out.
Dr.Burugu was extremely helpful and understanding. She takes time to explain everything clearly to the patient. She is very knowledgeable and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask questions. I had the pleasure of switching her as my new PCP to continue to care for my chronic illness. She makes you feel like a priority and not just a number. This doctor is awesome and I felt like she is one I have been looking for. I found that front desk staff was pleasant, and scheduling was easy as well in spite of them being very busy. I highly recommend this doctor in this part of Austin. I live in south Austin but don’t mind driving to this place because of the fantastic care.
I might have said this in my last review but I really am so happy to be a patient here. Everyone I've ever interacted with, from front desk staff to technicians to doctors, has consistently been so kind and pleasant and engaged. The worst thing I have to say about this office is that it's so far from where I live, but the quality of care and the personalities make the drive well worth taking.
I was in a car accident and needed to see Dr. Burugu as a follow up to get a referral to a pain specialist. They didn't confirm my appointment, so I called yesterday to confirm. The nurse said their calendars aren't synced with Zocdoc and the time wasn't available. I changed it to later in the week. No empathy. Called again today since they hadn't confirmed my appointment. They said Dr. Burugu wanted to leave early, so asked me to reschedule. I'm in pain. I need help. they didn't communicate with me. They didnt have any other options other than to see the nurse or change the date again. Why? Because she wanted to leave early.
Always wonderful and informative. Very caring.
Dr Sukanya was great! She was patiently listens to all the concerns and follows up with the same
I just relocated back to Austin and was in need of a family doctor. Dr. Burugu was professionally thorough with my medical assessment in the effort to help me and she is now my primary care doctor.
She was very nice. She listened to all of my concerns and answered all my questions. I didnt feel rushed through the appointment.
This was my first appointment with this Doctor and I was called in before I finished my paper work. I was expecting long wait times based on previous medical office but to my surprise, I was called in no time. I am so lucky to have found this Doc, I am definitely making this physician as my PCP going forward. She definitely gives 110% in greeting and welcoming patients. Dr, Burugu makes you feel at ease the moment she steps into the room. Her friendly smile and good nature makes the appointment a very pleasant experience. I had been to other doctors and no one would listen to me with so much patience and caring. I needed a caring Physician who would listen to my problems and comfort me with the advice. She had built a good trust with me today and talked through my history and symptoms before ordering blood work or making a diagnosis. The doctor was not rushing me out but had an attitude of taking care of the patient. Last but not least, staff was really friendly, and helpful in insurance verification in spite of being late to my appointment. I definitely recommend this place for any patient that is looking for a Primary care physician.
The wait time was pretty bad, but Dr. Burugu's care made up for it. She was very kind and seemed to really care about me as a patient. I will go back!
This doctor is fabulous. She is thorough and truly committed to patient care. I could not be more pleased.
The wait was longer than I thought considering I had an appointment, but when I finally got in to see her, she was quick and purposeful. She listened to me carefully, but had me out in under 10 minutes! Her bedside manner is nice, but very fast. She doesn't waste time. I'd definitely recommend her to others.
The Dr. was informative and she was very patient.
Really enjoyed interactions both with Dr. Burugu and all of her staff. Great experience and I will be sticking with them! Highly recommended.
I found Dr. Burugu very professional, kind, and smart. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
She is a very competent and efficient doctor. Her office staff knows what they're doing. I think she's a fantastic doctor. It was easy to schedule an appointment and the way she runs her office is just really smooth. Solid visit.
Dr. B is awesome, very thorough and makes sure all of your questions are answers. Her nurses are pretty awesome too! Two thumps up and five stars!
I absolutely love Dr. Burugu. I'm new to the Austin area and was nervous about finding a new doctor. She is just a fantastic provider, listens well, is so warm and engaging. Myself and my daughter are both now patients!
Her & staff were all so friendly!!! Great service!!
This was my first time seeing Dr. Burugu. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Dr. Burugu has a great bedside manner---you get the sense that she really does care about you as a person.
Did my annual physical, was pretty satisfied with doctor burugu's care. 5 stars. There was a bit of a wait but it wasn't too bad. Around 30-45 minutes before I was seen from the time I arrived. There was more waiting in an exam room, but overall the experience was ok.
Dr. Burugu is very sweet and professional :)
My PCP was awesome, but it takes weeks to get in to see her, sometimes 6-8. I needed a new PCP after a car accident, so chose her. She's in far north Austin and I'm in South, so her office is a little far, but she's so happy and friendly that I love working with her. She was very fast and always asked, "what questions do you have?". She wants to make sure she has answered all of your questions and that you fully understand what's going on. I also like the friendly, happy staff, and nice clean office.
The triage nurse was very nice. The office is very convenient where located. There is a CPL lab right across 183 so it's very convenient to get labs done right away. The office was very neat and orderly also.
It was my first appointment with Dr Burugu. She made me feel very comfortable, staff was friendly too. After meeting her, I am sure that my health is in safe hands. I highly recommend Dr Burugu.
This was my first visit there. The staff was very nice and welcoming. Dr. Burugu listened to every question I had and answered everything with confidence, which is what I look for in a physician! Highly recommend! Definitely going to stay with her as my primary GP.
Great office and Doctor. After years of hating the doctor, I have finally found a doctor and office I will willing visit again.
Doctor Burugu is always professional, thorough, and kind.
I have a severe case of white coat syndrome and thought it was going to be impossible to find a good doctor. My appointment with Dr Burugu exceeded my expectations and I truly believe I have found a great partner for my health care.
I was very satisfied with my visit. Dr B did not only listen to my current problem for the visit, but also ask questions about other allergy symptoms. I didn't have to wait much longer and was attended in time.
I was very happy with Dr. B and all her staff. Very friendly and helpful. Dr. B asked all the right questions and listened to you.
I've always been very nervous about going to the doctor, regardless of the reason. Dr. Burugu did a great job of calming me down and helping me to stay positive during the diagnosis.
I think Dr. Burugu is a competent physician. The office location is very close to my home. The office staff was warm and efficient during the check in process. I am happy to find a doctor in Austin I feel comfortable with.
she was awesome! very informative, encouraged me to ask questions if I had any. Will refer all friends and family to her!
All of the reviews are correct! First, my appt was at 8:30 and I didn't have to wait like other doc offices. Dr. Burugu is a lovely and warm person. I immediately felt comfortable talking to her. She is very professional and knowledgable. I am looking forward to her being my primary physician.
ZocDoc ended up having the wrong information about appoinment availability (ZD said they had an opening, which I reserved) and the people at reception were incredibly gracious and apologetic about it, even though it wasn't their fault-- and what's more, they *still* managed to squeeze me in despite being completely full all day. Dr. Burugu was patient and listened to all my concerns and was *never* condescending, even when I embarrassedly admitted to looking some medical things up on the Internet. I've always avoided going to the doctor for anything less than a serious infection that requires prescription drugs, and this office is ~15 miles from my house by perpetually-traffic-clogged freeways, but every single person I engaged with in this office was so, so kind and now I'm actually looking *forward* to my follow-up appointment. A thousand times better than my last doctor's office experience, where reception was dismissive and the attending physician treated me like an unstable three-year-old.
Overall, I had a great experience with my first visit to the Dr. Burugu’s office. Her staff is very hospitable, and she herself is very knowledgeable and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask questions. She had listened to my concerns with so much patience and helped me address everything. I had the pleasure of switching her to my PCP to continue my care for a chronic illness. NOT ONLY did she make me feel very comfortable but she has the best bed side manners with the biggest heart and compassion towards her patients ! She makes you feel like a priority and not just a number on the appointment list!! This doctor is awesome and I felt like she is one I have been waiting for. I found that scheduling is easy as well in spite of them being very busy. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone who is looking for a primary care physician without any hesitation.
Dr.Burugu was extremely helpful and understanding. She explains everything in detail and very open and easy to talk to. The staff was also very helpful and prompt. My appointment was a very pleasant experience.
My visit with Dr Burugu was one of the best doctor visits I have ever encountered. I started developing several symptoms which were drastically effecting my quality of life and productivity at work as well. She quickly addressed my areas of major concern and provided a great course of treatment. The front office staff is very friendly and helpful getting you checked in & out. Plan to keep returning here for many years to come.
Dr.Sukanya Burugu makes you feel at ease the moment she steps into the room. Her friendly smile and good nature makes the appointment a very pleasant experience. She is very knowledgeable and her diagnosis has always been spot-on. She is extremely patient while answering your queries and is also very very understanding while dealing with the patients. A major plus point is that she makes the patient feel very comfortable. Her staff is very friendly and competent.
What an awful experience! My appointment was the first one in the morning but I still spent over an hour there because the doctors phone kept ringing and without any apology she answered. The office staff was RUDE as HELL when I called (like the doctor instructed) to get a note I needed right away. It took 2 DAYS to get that and had to physically go there to get it even though they promised to email it to me before the end of the day.
Most pleasant experience I've had during a doctors visit. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.
She has always been patient and listened to my concerns and helped me address everything. Very knowledgable and caring person.
I have been searching for a PCP and today was my initial visit with Dr. Burugu. When I first arrived I was greeted at the front desk by Kim who was very professional and welcoming. She definitely gives 110% in greeting and welcoming patients. Next, Page screened me and my reason for coming to Dr. Burugu. Just like Kim, Page exhibited extreme professionalism and was very warm and friendly. Next, Dr. Burugu examined me and spent a lot of time asking questions and listening to me. She will definitely be my new PCP and I feel so lucky to have found her and her super staff. Kudos guys!!!
This was my first appointment. I was called back before i even finished my new patient paperwork. The lady at the desk was wonderful, she went out of her way to fix an insurance issue, with no attitude at all! The nurse was very friendly and interested in what i had to say. Dr. Burugu was great. She took the time to let me ask questions and made sure i understood everything she said. She sat and played with my 2 year old daughter and didnt make me feel like she was in a hurry to move on. Excellent doctor and staff!! Most definitely my new PCP!
I had the most pleasant office visit today with Dr. Burugu and her staff. I was greeted with a smile from every person I encountered and they made me feel right at home. You can really tell that Dr. Burugu loves what she does by the way she interacts with her patients. She built a rapport with me today and talked through my history and symptoms before ordering blood work or making a diagnosis. I felt cared for and welcome in Dr. Burugu's care. I highly recommend her!
She was so kind! Loved getting to chat with her and the ease of the visit.
Wonderful Doctor! Very kind, intelligent, informative! Felt safe and cared for! Highly recommend!
She takes the time to talk to her patients. I didn't feel rushed, as I often do when visiting medical professionals. I felt more comfortable with this Doctor than others I have seen over the years.
My experience was very pleasant and she understood the symptoms very well, hence the diagnosis was perfect.
Friendly, efficient doctor. Very nice staff and facilities.
Overall, I had a wonderful experience with my first visit to Dr. Burugu. The place is pretty easy to find, her staff is very hospitable, and she herself is very knowledgeable and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask questions. My only complaint is the wait time. By the time Dr. Burugu came in to see me, I'd already been there over a half hour and the whole appointment made me 40 minutes late from my lunch break. I would definitely go back, but will be limited to days that my boss can spare me for two hours.
Wonderful doctor !!!
Always have been pleased to be seen by Dr. Burugu. Her staff us very kind and friendly to work with.
She was detailed and thorough. My wife loved her appt
Best doctor in Austin.
She was very sweet and to the point, was quick in the visit but still asked a decent amount of questions. The office followed up with me later asking about allergy testing.
This was my second visit to Dr. Burugu's office and both times they were running behind about 30 minutes. Other than that, it's been a great experience.
I have seen Dr. Burugu several times for a strange bulge in my right abdomen. The staff always recognized me when I came in and always made me feel comfortable. Dr. Burugu was very aggressive with my treatment to find out what was going on with me. She took the time to call me back right away when I had a question or a test result that had come back in. As it turns out I had a blocked kidney that needed to be removed right away! I have recommended her to anyone looking for a Doctor!
She was fantastic! Quick and easy and took care of more in the appt than I even thought I needed.
She was very friendly and thorough. She seemed to care and followed up with me.
She is awesome! She listens when you speak. She is very kind and understands all your needs.she is not only my new primary care doctor but my husband doctor as well.
Effective and to the point
Dr. Burugu is great. She's efficient and thorough. Her staff is amazing!
Dr. Sukanya !! ABSOLUTELY just love her and her staff!! ( SIMPLY WONDERFUL) I had the pleasure of switching her to my PCP to continue my care for a chronic illness. NOT ONLY did she make me feel very comfortable but she has the best bed side manners known to man kind with the biggest heart and compassion for her patients ! IVE BEEN SEARCHING AND SEARCHING for a doctor like this my whole entire life! NOTHING but good things to say about her and her staff ! ALL her reviews are right on point! I highly recommend her if you dont chose to be a patient of hers you have no idea what a REAL doctor patient relationship consist of! She is beyond just being my doctor she makes you feel like a priority and not just a number!! GOD is good ive been praying my heart out and he sent me Dr. Sukanya!!!
Everyone at dr burugu's office is awesome
Great office visit experience, caring staff and Physician. Highly recommend if you're looking for a smart and caring primary care doctor who genuinely cares about her patients and clinic.
Office looked clean & professional. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful. Everyone looked happy to work there. I'm very pleased and satisfied with my experience so far.
Loved how efficient and valuable the visit was. She was very professional, tranquil and personable. I'm a working girl in her mid 20s who just needed a quick check up so she was perfect.
Dr. Burugu is very professional and kind. I was allowed to ask any questions and she had the answer. I highly recommend this office. I just filled out some simple paper work and I was seen right away.
She was great. Very pleasant and quick to get to the point - but in a way that I did not feel rushed.
Perfect--she's my.new PCP for sure now. Very helpful!
Dr. Burugu and the three of her staff members I interacted with were all extremely professional, kind, and pleasant to deal with. Seeing a new doctor for the first time is always an anxious experience but I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Burugu's office to anyone.
Physician and staff are all very personable
Empathetic and thorough. A rare experience with a doctor in my life so far! I love Dr Burugu.
Totally awesome - she was able to give me plenty of personal attention despite a steady stream of patients and answered all of my questions in detail. Very kind and helpful. When there was an insurance issue, she personally made sure that her staff were aware and could avoid causing me any undue bills. I am grateful.
I've been looking for a dr in Austin area, first visit. And I think she's the one!!!!! Love d the experience. Seems to be great Dr
In and out very fast! All questions answered.
She is very approachable..explanations are clear and forthcoming. A really nice physician.
Dr. Burugu was very kind. She was very thorough and understanding. I am happy to say I have found my new primary care doctor.
still knowing her
The office is really nice and clean plus everyone in there really educated and nice
Dr. Burugu is an excellent doctor. I feel really comfertable talking to her. She has been my primary care physician for 2 years. Every time I meet her she knows my case and ackonwlege all the problems. She never makes me feel rished and answers all my questions. I would highly reommend her to anyone who is loooking for a good and caring doctor in Austin.
My only problem is that the prescription is for 5 mil. of Norco and not the 10 that I usually take.. so that my prescription will only last 15 days instead of 30-- need to have an apt sooner than in the month as scheduled. Thanks so much
Best Doctor in Austin, she is excellent in what she does. She is very caring. I would recommend her to anyone who needs good care. I would never go anywhere than to her for a doctor's appointment. Again she is the best in town!
Dr. Burugu was very personable yet professional. She is now my primary care physician.
Excellent bedside manner and very friendly and knowledgeable. She never once made me feel rushed and she was detail oriented in her observation of me. Dr. Burugu was very patient and answered all of my questions, she was an absolute joy... I am so lucky to have found her!
awesome doctor felt like she really cared. asked a lot of questions took her time to understand what I was saying.
Dr. Burugu was wonderful! Her staff is caring, kind, and efficient. She's the only primary care physician I could find working on Black Friday, which happened to be my day off. I Recommend her without hesitation.
Extremely pleasant staff, nice location, and the doctor herself was very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in my wellbeing, as opposed to just wanting to shuffle me back out the door.
I just had my first visit with Dr. Burugu and she is excellent. She's sharp, thinks fast, thinks ahead, is organized, and caring and friendly. She is quite sensitive to self-pay no insurance patients such as I am, her rates reflect this. It's very convenient to book my appointments online using ZocDoc too. Over the past several years I haven't had very good luck finding a doctor. I've paid high rates for impersonal and ineffective service. Dr. B is a cut above the rest. This has been a long search and I'm very thankful to have found her.
Caring and great listener
I went in with leg problems. She said I needed to get sonograms and when I went to the radiologist, the paperwork was wrong and I had to reschedule. She then called an asked me if my abdominal pain was getting better. So... I don't feel even remotely confident with her and paperwork at the moment.
Dr. Burugu was warm, friendly, and very thorough. She will absolutely become my routine primary care physician.
So patient and helpful. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Burugu is very professional and helpful.
Professional, kind, and knowledgable.
She was very kind and helped explain a lot. It really helped calm me.
Interesting and nice.
She was really great and thorough, I felt very comfortable talking to her and she was knowledgeable on my health conditions. She has to refer out for many things I'm use to a regular doctor handling like sleep medication and other medication management that doesn't require a specialist, but she said it was an Austin law so I'm still waiting for 3 specialists to get back to me she referred me to. Aside from that inconvenience I do feel comfortable she's pointing me in the right direction and will stay in her care until I move back to the east coast where we don't have so much law governing medicine which is a problem I've seen all over Texas. For a first visit she made a great impression and it was obvious she was a wealth of knowledge, I just hope these referrals come together easily because the wait and confusion is why I'm deducting one star. Heard nothing and its been 2 weeks since my appointment they were submitted.
She was very thorough and caring. She explained everything she prescribed and didn't make you feel like just another patient.
She was extremely attentive and we'll definitely recommend her!
She is a wonderful Dr. I was very impressed with her. She was very friendly and explained everything to me. She answered all my health concerns.
She was very thorough, knowledgeable and pleasant. I really liked her.
We thought she was wonderful! One of the BEST Doctors we have ever seen! She was extremely helpfull! We hated seeing Doctors but now we will be looking forward to seeing her!
I was impressed. She listened, took notes, asked the hard questions, educated, prepared me for the future and personnally confirmed the availibilty for resources to assist me. I was not interupted or out of the office so she get to another patient. I was't treated like a dollar sign nor did she draw conclusions or make hasty decisions/ diagnosis. It's hard to find a confident, competent and caring physician these days. Thank God I found her.
She is great
She is very sweet and listens well.
