I didn't feel rushed and that made it so much easier to explain what I was feeling. I didn't forget like I have in the past with other drs. when I was made to feel like I was wasting their time.


Great experience.


Dr. Burns is a delight and informative once she sees me, but I find the wait time to be inappropriately long.


Wouldn't change my care provider for nothing, thank you *Dr. Cynthia Burns, MD & Baptist Hospital for having me.


Very informative about my condition.


*Dr. Burns is the best!


*Dr. Burns is professional, friendly and helps me understand my health concerns.


Care provider couldn't be better!


I see Dr. Burns one time per year to follow a thyroid problem. She is not my primary care physician.


Dr. Burns is fantastic. I trust her completely.


Dr. remembered the things last time I visit. This is make comfortable to me. Love!


Dr. Burns has done more for the control of my diabetes than 3 previous endocrinologists I saw in Greensboro. I am pleased with the results and we are able to communicate via your web site easily should something arise that isn't an emergency. We discuss what has happened and what to expect during the next cycle at each meeting, even though it is nearly a 100 mile trip for me. Keep up the good work Dr. Burns.


*Dr. Burns is a very caring doctor and she is extremely knowledgeable to provide superb healthcare.


I appreciate Dr. Burns asking me my opinion about my healthcare need and agreeing on the plan of care.


*Dr. Burns knows that I will ask questions if 1. I don't understand; 2. her advice is inconsistent. She always explains fully -


*Dr. Burns always makes me feel comfortable & is very friendly & always shows concern for me.


Dr. Burns is personable and top notch physician. Wait time is only problem, but it is because she does not rush her patients, so I understand.


Very few times in 10 years, did I have to wait - sometimes an emergency.
