    Dr. Burks was very nice! She answered my questions and explained things well.
  • Nov 16, 2020
    The wait to be seen is very long and not reasonable for urgent issues not concerning fertility. The front desk staff was friendly in person but on the phone and email said paper work was completed when it wasn't and then one said it was received when another person said it wasn't. Very unprofessional but Dr. Burks was amazing

    They were very kind and informative during my appointment.
  • Oct 27, 2020

    I love Dr Burks. She has always been so kind & caring. She is also great at answering questions & never gets annoyed if I ask more than one.

    Dr. Burks was amazing and gentle and very knowledgeable. I feel very confident that she will help me get to where I want to be. Her nurse, I wish I could remember her name, was stellar as well. I don't think I've ever had anyone draw my blood as easily and painless as she did. And she was very friendly, outgoing, and not afraid to talk to me just like two old friends.
  • Oct 12, 2020
    Dr. Burks was patient and took her time explaining to me everything that could be causing my recurrent pregnancy loss, the planned testing and possible treatments. I felt like she cared and wasn't rushing the appointment. I am glad she is the Dr. That will be working to help me and my husband start our long awaited family.
  • Oct 12, 2020
    This was my first visit at OU, and I am beyond impressed with Dr. Burks. She listened to me and was thorough and clear with how to best proceed. In just one visit I left with answers and a plan, which is something I've been wanting for over a year.
