The worst doctor I have ever met

I would like to give 0 star if there is that option because she is the worst doctor that I have met in my life. I don't have other choice to choose another one genetic doctor other wise I will run away from her.

Dr Barbra Burton has been there for me as my doctor, during the toughest times of my chronic illness, she has helped me get through my pain professionally and very lovingly. She has been my true support for 18 years. She has a superb team who utilizes all aspects in ensuring a healthy and stable prognosis. She has keen judgement and I trust her with my rare health condition. I would definitely recommend her services. I wish all doctors were like her.

Condescending and Rude

Dr Burton is condescending and rude. Yes, I have pku, yes, I know that I need to follow a diet, yes, I understand the ramifications of not following. Dr Burton acts as tho this diet is easy. Clearly she has trouble following a regular diet as she is not the picture of health weight wise. Dr Burton needs some empathy. Get off your high horse. This disease is difficult and the diet is very hard. Did she ever think that maybe I AM doing my best?
