New to area, recommended by Insurance staff as positive rating. Called and spoke with a nurse at length to ensure that Dr Burrell was familiar and knowledgeable treating my previously diagnosed condition, Fibromyalgia...from auto accident 5 yrs prior. Not looking for a cure as I have tried every medication with negative results, just a continuation of workable meds and yearly blood work. Upon arrival I was lead to examine room and Dr Burrell was quick to appear. BUT then told me she did not feel comfortable treating me.....and then began taking my history?? At end of visit she stated that I did not have Fibromyalgia and that Probiotics would make me feel better and then prescribe 50,000 units weekly of Vitamin D which would make me feel great! SHE'S A QUACK! Should have stayed with a Rheumatologist, after yrs of MRIs, rehab therapy and various treatments...in 10 minutes I'm "cured" with probiotics and Vitamin D. No, it doesn't work like that. See another physician.

I had the flu and came in for an office visit. 3 days later my fever did not subside and I started coughing up blood. I called the office and left a message. I did not get a return call by the next day, so I called again. They said I called the wrong nurse. Then the correct nurse told me I was fine and the blood I was coughing up was just broken cappilaries. She told me there wasn't anything I could do but to just lay in bed for 10-12 days. I believed her but then 2 days later, I started to have trouble breathing and went to an immediate care center. They told me I had double pneumonia and I was rushed by ambulance to the hospital and was in intensive care for 3 days and the hospital for 9. I believe I should have been told to get a chest xray when I called the office.
