Specialties

Dr. Garrett Burris has the following 3 specialties

  • Child Neurology

    Pediatric neurologists diagnose neurological conditions in children as young as newborn, all the way up to adolescence. They can recommend treatment for sleep disorders, head injuries and headaches, but they also specialize in issues such as epilepsy, seizures and brain tumors.
    Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities. You can consult with a pediatric neurologist before, during and after diagnosis depending on your child's specific condition and needs.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

He took the time to answer any questions I had

We love Dr. Burris. My daughter battles with ADHD and depression and Dr. Burris took the time to talk to her and us to find the correct help for her problems. Every time I go I have new questions and he always takes the time to answer them.The only negative is the wait time, I'm usually in the waiting room at least 30 minutes. Love the Dr. though.

Great Doctor!

Dr. Burris is the best you will find, he is kind and a great listener. Great with kids, and doesn't rush to medicate but takes his time until the child is ready. Some doctors rush to medicate, but he makes you wait a long time and fill in all the paperwork to make sure the child can actually benefit from the medication. He doesn't give you false hope but tells you that there is no magic pill and that is great advice! GREAT DOCTOR!!!

Dr Burris clearly identified my son's condition and recommended medication which was helpful in making a huge improvement within 3 weeks. He saw us as needed in fu, but then allowed us to continue his recommended treatment with the ped. He is exceptionally knowlegeable and I recommend him to all with a special needs child.

Disrespectful doctor and staff

Our experience with this office has been poor overall, from the staff through the doctor. My daughter suffers from debilitating migraines and Dr. Burris only gave her a cursory examination and then proceeded to make her feel like an addict for requiring pain medication for migraines b/c she couldn't take any of the triptans. His staff also was rude, particularly the nurse who does the preliminary exam and answers all calls on Dr. Burris' behalf. Awful experience.
