My experience with Dr Burke was not great... he's a nice guy, but I felt like he was just a drug dispensary. To sum-up my office visits, they went something like this: I come in and tell them that the last prescribed drug did not change anything, and he would recomend that I try another (or others). This went on for several months and perhaps that's what a Gastroenterology doc does; just prescribe drugs until one is found that works? No talk of diet, no talk of precise symptoms I was having.

The breaking point was when I called up the office with abdominal pain wanting to see if I could get in and talk to them about it. In this time of need they said that they couldn't/wouldn't see me, and that my best bet was to check into the Emergency room somewhere. It wasn't like i was insisting on getting in immediately... if you're in pain go to the ER is their policy. I could believe that they would turn their backs on a patient like that. A few weeks later things went really downhill for me and I ended up in the hospital having lost 40 lbs.

Thus I can't recommend Dr Timothy Burke.
