Doctor Burke was great to have as a doctor and was very thorough and knowledgeable. I did not feel rushed and she listened to all my concerns.

” Dr. Burke is always friendly and helpful. I suffer from a terrible skin condition that flares up occasionally. Dr. Burke has offered a variety of options and has been very understanding. Fortunately, she has her own line of tar shampoo that helped my dry, flaky scalp. Her staff is friendly and helpful in resolving billing questions. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Burke and have been seeing her for ten years now. I truly recommend her as a dermatologist. “
