She was very helpful and sweet.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 9, 2020

She put me completely at ease through the whole process and I'm so glad that she was the one who I was working with. Bedside manners and personality were beyond excellent! Professionalism and personal connection were perfectly balanced. She explained everything on a level that I could understand and walked me through every step so that I knew what was happening.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 6, 2020

Every time I have an appointment, everyone is so great!

OU Physicians Patient Dec 29, 2019

I have had excellent experience in all my appointments, but I don't always know which provider I end up seeing. I am guessing this has to do with the holidays. I am rather low-key, so I didn't have a huge problem with this. Just something I was somewhat surprised at.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 28, 2019

She was AMAZING! She took the time to explain everything to me and check me thoroughly, she made me feel so much better about what was going on. I absolutely loved her!!

OU Physicians Patient Dec 28, 2019

Dr Burks is great! Her RN Connie is friendly, patient and communicated well. Thank you!

OU Physicians Patient Dec 19, 2019

Dr. Burks answered my questions honestly and relived the anxiety, I've had regarding conceiving. Thank you.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 17, 2019

This was a very brief appointment. The nurse was a little brusque. I would have liked to know more about why my ovarian follicles were developing slowly, but I neglected to ask.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 17, 2019

Dr. Burks called me a couple days after the appointment to tell me something that she had not recalled during our initial conversation. I appreciated her taking the time to personally call me with this detail.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 16, 2019

Wonderful person and personal

OU Physicians Patient Dec 10, 2019

Love the whole staff at OU and everything is always done in a timely manner.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 5, 2019

Great bedside manner, informative, and warm.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 5, 2019

Dr. Burke was detailed and provided a lot of education about my health. Dr. Burke was kind and a great communicator.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 2, 2019

This provider tried to give me as much information as possible and made sure we understood everything.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 26, 2019

I absolutely love Dr. Burks and everyone at OU Reproductive Med! They are the best!

OU Physicians Patient Nov 11, 2019

She was so kind & helpful during the experience. The fellow that was helping was also extremely sweet (I can't remember her name). It wasn't a pleasant procedure, but they made a terrible situation so much better.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 11, 2019

I was a little disconcerted that a resident did my ultrasound instead of Dr. Burks. I didn't mind but would have liked an introduction to let me know it was going to happen. Additionally, the resident didn't walk me through the steps of the ultrasound like Dr. Burks normally would.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 28, 2019

Burks is an overall great doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 21, 2019

Vet nice and professional

OU Physicians Patient Oct 10, 2019

I have nothing negative to say about Heather Burks. I am a new patient so what she knows about my medical history is what was provided to her and through a Q&A interview.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 8, 2019

After the nurse took my vitals we had to wait for over half an hour before we saw the provider. All that time we were just left in a room, without any information on how long it would be or why we had to wait for such a long time. It wasn't until after I walked out of the room and asked one of the other nurses that we were told that the provider was running late (something we had figured out by then). If you expect your patients to be on time and leave voicemails on multiple occasions telling patients that they should be on time or else, it would be nice if that is matched by a similar behavior by the provider/ clinic.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 7, 2019

She was very kind & helpful. She made me feel comfortable too.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 28, 2019

She was personable and answered our questions and didn't lead us with any false hope information.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 26, 2019

I have seen 3 specialists at this point and Dr. Burks is the first to want to find the cause and not just treat the symptoms.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 24, 2019

Great provider. I was given plenty of time to ask questions.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 16, 2019

Dr. Burks was eloquent and trusting when she was telling me about what she saw in my exam. I felt comfortable about everything she was telling me and gave me options in case I didn't want surgery. I really appreciate her way of expressing herself and making me feel good about the decision I would make.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 12, 2019

Dr. Burks was very thorough and explained everything very well. My husband and I both felt good about our experience.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 10, 2019

Very kind woman. Listened very well and made sure I was okay before she left the room.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 10, 2019

I absolutely love having Dr. Burks as my doctor. She is amazing.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 9, 2019

They all are wonderful!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 8, 2019

Friendly and good bedside manners.

Everyone I have had the pleasure of working with, thus far, is very professional and willing to help.

OU Physicians Patient May 13, 2019

Excellent job, thank you!

OU Physicians Patient May 13, 2019

Dr. Burks and staff have been nothing but amazing. Not just the staff but from the time I make an appointment to the time I check out. Though I'm going through a hard time due to my situation I'm always leaving feeling great. Because I feel like everyone cares! Wish I would of found your facility sooner!

OU Physicians Patient May 2, 2019

I love Dr. Burks. She is very knowledgeable and is able to explain to me what is going on in a manner that is easy to understand.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2019

I really like Dr. Burks. All the nurses have been very patient and friendly as well.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 18, 2019

She and her team was very helpful!!!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 18, 2019

Dr. Burks is an amazing doctor. She makes you feel comfortable, explains exactly what is going to happen, and gives you realistic expectations of the outcome you can expect. I would highly recommend Dr. Burks and her team to anyone.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 15, 2019


OU Physicians Patient Apr 15, 2019

Very satisfied with my experience. She was straight to the point and explained the entire process very well.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 11, 2019

Cannot speak enough good about Dr. Burks. She listened to me, and took the time to answer all of my questions without making me feel rushed at all. The nurses were excellent and made conversation and were genuine. Very pleased with my visit!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 1, 2019

Great to meet with, Gave me a lot of information and let me know what would be best to do before moving forward.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 26, 2019

Dr Burks is very nice and always very patient when we ask questions. She gives us very informative answers and explains why something is or is not possible instead of just saying yes or no.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 21, 2019

Dr. Burks was so knowledgeable and kind.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 18, 2019

Dr. Burks is very personable and relatable. I highly recommend her services. Dr. Burks is an excellent doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 18, 2019

I was told I had to fill out all my medical history online or my appointment would be cancelled. I had been careful to update everything even to the week of. During the appointment I felt all the information I gave online was not looked at. It was only mentioned when I brought it up. Just kind of annoyed me because I took the time to fil it all out (all 9 sections) and I was not sure it was even looked at.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 14, 2019

Provider attends to my questions and is usually quite accessible when out of office

OU Physicians Patient Mar 11, 2019

Everyone in this office is wonderful and makes this journey so much easier

OU Physicians Patient Mar 3, 2019

the entire clinic deserves kudos. billing, check-in, nursing, and of course the physician team

OU Physicians Patient Mar 1, 2019

She was amazing! Thankful for her helping me through I know medical issues.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 28, 2019

Dr Burks was professional and caring as she presented options for us. She followed up with a phone call to talk about options based on our medical history that her office was able to collect from another medical office. We appreciated our meeting with Dr. Burks

OU Physicians Patient Feb 21, 2019

She gives us recommendation and let's us help with the tx plans!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 16, 2019

He's the best, and all the nurses. Exp. Connie and Amber. Everyone is so loving, and accepting. The know how the journey can be and very comforting, hopeful.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 16, 2019

Dr Burks is very knowledgeable and was able To break down things in a way that I was able to understand as well as know exactly what my body is doing and what it needs to do.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 14, 2019

Thank you for the time spent answering questions.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 12, 2019

Great care. Awesome place to go

OU Physicians Patient Jan 27, 2019

Dr. Burks, the nurses, receptionists etc. were always so incredibly sweet and helpful. I always have had a great experience there and am very thankful for all they did for me and my growing family!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 22, 2019

My appointment was with Dr. Burks but my ultrasound was actually performed by a different doctor (I don't remember her name, but the nurse told me she was a fellow). That doctor took the time to explain what she was seeing on the ultrasound, which is something none of the other providers have done before. I highly appreciated that.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 26, 2018

Dr. Burks is truly a miracle worker. She is more concerned about me then getting a payment. I look forward to my appointment with her.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 15, 2018

My doctor was very professional, knowledgeable, and nice. she answered all my questions and eased my fears.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 11, 2018

I recommend Dr. Burks and OU Reproductive to ALL of my friends with endometriosis. She is fantastic. She even made a believer out of my mother, who for years doubted my sincerity of my health problems related to my periods. My dad did to a lesser degree and while he hasn't ever met Dr. Burks, my mom's change of heart switched him as well. Their change is worth all of the 3 and half or longer trips back and forth to OKC. I feel supported for the first time.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 30, 2018

very knowledgeable thorough and patient

OU Physicians Patient Jun 21, 2018

Dr. Burks is amazing! she was very patient and kind. She listened to my concerns and based my care and surgery around my wishes. She valued my opinion as the patient and treated me like a valued member of the care team.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 16, 2018

Dr. Burks did a great job at explaining things and answering our concerns. I look forward to the ideas she had set for us. Dr. Burks seems genuine and that is what we are looking for. We want someone to understand our struggles and are willing to help us and Dr. Burks seems like that provider we are looking for.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 9, 2018

The ladies in the office are very nice and socialable. I feel very relaxed and comfortable.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2018

Dr Burks is fantastic. she sat with my husband and I and patiently answered all our questions. I had big concerns over what I did not understand about IVF. She patiently and respectfully answered all our questions. very thankful for the work Dr Burks does!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 19, 2018

I can't say enough good complements about Dr. Burks are her surgical team. My case was complex and they took great care of me from start to finish! They were always around and quick to respond-I appreciated the attentive care!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 1, 2018

excellent service

OU Physicians Patient Dec 2, 2017

Dr. Burks is amazing and I would recommend her and this office to anyone!

OU Physicians Patient Nov 22, 2017

I would definitely recommend this practice and Dr. Burks to anyone!

OU Physicians Patient Oct 12, 2017

The doctor always answers my questions and treats me with respect. Great provider.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 2, 2017

She was smart and knew her stuff. I have high level of confidence in her.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 23, 2017

This is our second time using OU Physicians for fertility issues. We've been seeing Dr. Burks since February 2017. We LOVED our experience the first time, resulting in our first child. However, I do not feel the same level of care this time around. Often times, it's obvious from the conversation that Dr. Burks isn't listening (saying I am suffering headaches and taking Excedrin and then she asks If I'm taking anything for my headaches) and never seems to be fully engaged in the conversation. I honestly didn't know how to answer some of the above questions, because the information I was given about medications and follow-up care is always given to me by the nurses. Dr. Burks has not once discussed that information with me (given that the ultrasound schedule doesn't seem to allow time for any kind of discussion as I previously mentioned). I also have felt like she's leaving the decision about my treatment completely up to me. I often ask for her suggestion and cannot get a solid answer as to what the next step/process should be. Also, when asking questions about some of the processes (IUI for example) there was not a clear description/explanation given until it was decision time, and unfortunately my spouse wasn't there that day, because we didn't know that was a decision we needed to make that day. It has in general been a very frustrating experience this time around. I would 100% recommend OU Physicians to someone struggling with infertility, but I would not recommend Dr. Burks personally.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 28, 2017

I was first schedule to see another Dr and I ended up getting switched to Burke and I am SOOOO thankful because I LOVE her!!! She was so friendly and was genuinely concerned about me and my issues. She took her time (was with my husband and I for over an hour if not longer) and did not rush us AT ALL!!! I don't think I have every been THIS confident in a Doctor before!!! I am so excited to have her help me in my journey to have kids!!!!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 1, 2017

This is my second time using this facility but my first time with this doctor. I haven't felt the same care/concern from this dr as last time. It's been more along the lines of "we'll keep doing what we did last time". There's not been any discussion after failed attempts at getting pregnant about what to do next, we just keep doing the same thing. Which is fine if that's the best option, but it hasn't been addressed.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 1, 2017

Dr. Burks is very understanding and down to earth. We are very happy with this provider. We couldn't imagine going anywhere else. She explains the treatment very well, and easy to understand.

OU Physicians Patient May 26, 2017

I will recommend dr burns but not the clinic. some of the clerks dobnot have finese or courtesy .

OU Physicians Patient May 14, 2017

I can't sing Heather's praises enough. We truly are blessed to have her expertise. She has put hope back into our situation.

OU Physicians Patient May 11, 2017

I just feel like her bedside manner is lacking compared to everyone else at the clinic

OU Physicians Patient Feb 7, 2017

I will recommend Dr. Burks to anyone who has fertility needs!

OU Physicians Patient Jan 31, 2017

overall great experience

OU Physicians Patient Jan 30, 2017

i love this facility and would recommend to anyone. my only complaint os i think karen the nurse needs some practice drawing blood. im scared of needles amd last time was poked 4 times beforr she could fill a vail

OU Physicians Patient Jan 12, 2017

Dr. Burks was very sweet and empathetic during my situation. She gave us all the options and didn't make me feel rushed or pressured.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 10, 2017

Dr Berks took the top me to speak with my regular nurse practitioner about my case and answered all of her questions. both myself and my nurse practitioner recommend the facility and Dr Berks

OU Physicians Patient Dec 5, 2016

I've never received batter care with this type of provider. I'm highly impressed!

OU Physicians Patient Nov 7, 2016

As I described previously, this was a really wonderful experience for husband and I. We have felt very discouraged after seeing doctors about our infertility problem, but Dr. Burk seemed genuinely interested in helping us. I am so grateful for the extended amount of time we were given to discuss treatment options with her.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 29, 2016

Dr. Burks spent nearly an hour and a half with us answering questions and walking us through dense terms and procedures. She came back repeatedly to give us additional information as she thought of it and even called me about an hour after we left because she forgot to mention an additional fact.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 25, 2016

I did not feel that she knew or had reviewed my case before seeing me as she did not know what I felt to be important information such as doses of medications I had been prescribed and treatment cycle number. In the moment, it made me feel like she wasn't really managing my case.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 16, 2016

I would and have recommended Dr. Burks to my friends already. She is kind informative and has explained my condition in terms no previous doctor or WebMD had. My mom had not understood what I was going through, but thanks to Dr. Burks, she understands that it wasn't some kind of thing that would Go away.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 8, 2016

they made me feel very comfortable and explained everything as the appointment went along.

OU Physicians Patient May 19, 2016

Dr. Burks is very helpful , kind and having a good patience to listen patients. She is caring and concerning us very much and provide the best service to customers/patients. Nice to have her as my doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 11, 2016

every time i walk through the clinic...every nurse who has worked with me acknowledges me and says hi with a smile. Makes me feel very comfortable being there

OU Physicians Patient Jan 7, 2016
