  • 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.

Waste of Time

My father in law has seen Dr. Burciaga 2 times. The first visit she seemed somewhat interested, she said a Physical Therapist would be contacting us as well as a Nutritionist.They never contacted us.Today my Father in Law had a Follow up.When we walked into Dr Burciaga's office she was turned away from us facing her computer screen for a few minutes,she did not acknowledge us whatsoever.. When I asked about the Nutritionist & Physical Therapist she said it would not be worth it.I am a little confused because she was the one who recommended it..She was VERY RUDE and No help whatsoever. We will be changing Doctors asap..

Four Stars

Dr. Burciaga is pretty thorough when she is diagnosing a problem, we all need to remember doctors are not miracle workers they are there to help with our illnesses but they can not always make everyone 100% better, I think a lot of us take our doctors for granted and want them to fix or cure our illnesses immediately this is just not reality. Dr. Burciaga has been my doctor for a number of years unfortunately however i have had to change my primary care doctor due to taking a position and only seeing local patients in the area on saturdays and due to no fault of her own it just does not work with my schedule. I do feel that Dr. Burciaga is a very good doctor.

Severe problems

Disbelieves ongoing life-long problems that were diagnosed 6 years prior (MS), and insists on getting an MRI, but due to incompetence of either the doctor or her staff, the orders never get put in. We've waited 2 years for my wife's MRI (which is supposed to be an annual thing), and it still hasn't happened or processed.
