August 11, 2014

Have recommended my care taker to many of my friends and family

August 11, 2014

I was extremely happy with Laura Burton's care. I went to Laura because my primary care physician was not listening to my concerns about the severe side effects that I was experiencing due to my thyroid medicine. Laura listened and quickly diagnosed the problem (it was too much medicine). I cannot even begin say how much better I felt after leaving her office. She is an awesome physician and I will definitely keep her as my doctor.

July 19, 2014

I follow Laura where ever she goes she makes a big difference for me I can talk to her about anything and be comfortable some doctors aren't realistic in their suggestions but Laura is she takes all things into consideration I have a fracture in my back so I can't exercise hard some Dr's want more she understands I can't

I have been a patient of Laura's since she has been at the Center and will remain a patient as long as she is a staff member. I followed her to Layton and will follow her for my care wherever she is practicing.

I have recommended Laura Burton to others. She is amazing. She always remembers me and the things going on in my life and is very encouraging with delivering the information I need to know. She helps me see where I can improve without making me feel like a failure. She's efficient and VERY knowledgeable and I actually LIKE going to the doctor when I see her.

June 13, 2014

I came knowing I had some concerns with issues I had not had in the past, Laura was great however there were items that a doctor would have been able to explain and diagnose which the NP lacked experience in. So I will need to make another appointment to see Dr Debra Simmons.
