Specialties

Dr. Alan Burshell has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Very unprofessional.He giggled the whole 10 minutes that he spent with me.Not even sure that he looked at my MRI results that clearly indicated pituitary shrinkage or my hormone test that indicated major imbalance.Was very quick to diagnose me as depressed, and send me on my way (because I have a family history of depression. When I have NO family history of depression what so ever!!)

Excellent Diagnostician, Caring physician

I was referred to Dr. Burshell for treatment with my thyroid cancer. He was very warm, personable, patient, and candid about my condition, treatment and went the extra mile to uncover and research some undiagnosed conditions that effected my current illness. Three days after my initial visit with Dr. Burshell Hurricane Katrina hit making it impossible for him to treat my cancer. He personally called me numerous times at home concerned about my lack of treatment and coordinated my treatment at MD Anderson in Houston and follow-up with him. On all my follow-up visits he has taken extra time with me to answer all my questions about my health as well as continue to research other health problems. I have the highest regard for Dr. Burshell and his staff.
