The doctor is absolutely great in how she eases the patient and makes her comfortable. However, the process of getting the test results from her clinic is very tedious. I had gone in for an annual physical checkup and in orderto receive the blood test results, it took multiple calls and lot of confusion to get another appointment scheduled without which I would not have received the results.

Dr Burugu is what you should expect from a doctor, knowledgeable and friendly. But her staff is another level of incompetent and I will not be returning. Please keep in mind they do not have an online portal like most doctorsdo now. You need to repeatedly call for them to send test results to you through email. Also, Dr Burugu never called me to discuss my lab results. I came in for a physical but had some other concerns so it was deemed a sick visit. Dr Burugu then suggested I come back for my actual physical. I asked what that would cover that we didn't cover in that appointment and she was like, nothing. So why would I waste my time coming in for another appointment? After I get my labs done (blood and urinalysis) I get a call from one of her nurses saying my urinalysis came back negative. I'm like, great, negative for what? What were you testing? She couldn't say! I don't know what the urinalysis is for so information on that would be great. I asked for the results of my blood test, she didn't know anything about those so had to call me back. She did and just read them through to me (of course all of it is gibberish because I don't know what any of these levels are) so I just wanted them to send me the results through email. They said they would send by the end of the day. The next day rolls around and I didn't get them so I call back and request them, again giving them my email address. Next day, still don't have them. So call back AGAIN and I FINALLY get sent my urinalysis results...not even what I asked for! I call back for the fourth time and ask for the blood test results, I get an email within that day but it's an attachment that doesn't even work. So I will need to send more of my time at work chasing them up that could easily be in a portal like another doctor. Dr Burugu never called me to go over my blood test results. I had to call 5 times to get them sent to me over email and am just going to go through them myself or take them to another doctor. Safe to say I will not be returning to this doctor and her incompetent practice. I wasted too much of my time on getting a simple set of blood test results and getting my money back when they charged me for an appointment that was 100% covered by my insurance.

This is my third visit and I love the entire staff. Dr. B is very sweet and has a good sense of humor, she is brilliant, and I get immediate results. Saw her today and unclogged my ear and now Ihear in HD ((Stereo)) and my balance is back! The office staff is the best ever.}And oh, she saved my life when I had pneumonia.

As the reviews suggested, I was a new patient and the front office wasn’t really the friendliest or the most welcoming of places but they did work hard and reached out to my insurance several times because they couldn’t get ahold of them initially. As for the Doctor Burugu, she’s great! She listens to everything you say, is humorful and takes a lot of notes with many recommendations. Seemed to me like one of the most attentive doctors I have had yet!

Dr. Burugu is awesome! Her staff is ok. They weren't very welcoming when I first approached the check-in counter. They didn't acknowledge me until after a few conversations they we're having ended. They looked at me, then looked away..but don'tlet the staff take away from the great doctor Dr. Burugu is.

Fine. Nothing spectacular and seemed very quick to address the bare minimum to get me out of the patient room as soon as possible. Would prefer someone a little bit more engaged and attentive.

Had an early morning appointment and got right in. Dr. B strikes me as very intelligent, and seemed knowledgeable. She did not particularly agree with my self-diagnosis, and, who knows, maybe she's wrong, but I don't mind a doctor who's willingto push back. Her accent's a bit strong; I can't say I understood every last word. But her demeanor was warm, pleasant, and reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. B.

I was hesitant, as I am to meet most doctors for the first time. The moment she walked in, I felt at ease. She genuinely cared about my concerns and treated my needs. She had time to listen. She was kind,intelligent, and honest. These days, that is not always easy to come by in a doctor. I feel blessed and would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Dr. Burugu was so friendly! She also suggested I get blood work to make sure I’m not having long-term side effects from my medicines, which no doctor has suggested before. I appreciate that she is thinking about my long term health instead of rubber stamping another prescription.

Awesome doctor. I've been putting off having a regular dr for years because of some prior bad experiences, but Dr. Burugu put all of those to rest. She listened to a long list of issues without rushing me or judging meand rather than handwaving a single one of them away she ordered tests for absolutely everything to make sure. No chastising for being overweight or needing to exercise as the first and last stop of any diagnosis. I've had chronic issues go undiagnosed for a decade because prior doctors wanted to stop the train at those items (at a time when i was working out daily and perfectly within the correct weight-range). She listens, she cares, she is very attentive, and she treats you like you know your body and your norm from the get go. Wait time in the office was minimal and the NPA saw me immediately and Dr Burugu wasn't more than 5 or 10 minutes after the nurse left. for the first time in my life i've found a Dr. that i like and trust to have my best interests in mind.
