The midwives with this medical group were great. Unfortunately the first time I met Dr Burgess was while I was in labor with my daughter. He happened to be the doctor on call that day. When I told him I was doing a VBAC, (I'd already delivered that way successfully once), he became very condescending and rude. His exact words to me were, "I completely disagree with what you are doing. If I could drag you into the operating room and force you to have a c-section, I would. Do not call me until you are ready to push." That was a 7am. He never came back to my room. I asked the nurse what time he was going home. When she said 5, I told her I would wait for my epidural until 1:30, that it would take 4 hours for my body to be ready to give birth. 5:45 I called my nurse, asked her if he'd left. When she said yes, and told her I was ready to push. 10 minutes later, my daughter was delivered by another, much kinder doctor.

Dr. Burgess is a very caring physician with good bedside manners. What I don't like about him is the extremely long time waiting for the appointment. I spent almost 2 hours waiting. I do wish he was faster and get to the point quickly. I would guess that he would be a great physician for someone having their first baby (or second) because he appears to be very patient, which is very important! I am not sure if I would like for him to do any type of surgery (other than c-section) on me.

Dr. Burgess is a paternalistic jerk. He does not discuss things with you. With me, he also unnecessarily played the "dead baby" card when I dared question what he was telling me. He also made me wait 2 hours to see him. According to all the office staff, this is normal with him. I suppose this is to be expected... he had no respect for me, so why should he have respect for my time?It's a shame because the midwives in the practice are excellent. I don't know why they have him as their medical doctor on staff.
