Edwin R. Burrell, M.D.

I went into medicine because I felt it was the best way I could develop my talents and skills, and give something back to the community.  The intrinsic rewards of this profession lie in trying to make a positive difference in patients' lives, one patient at a time.  As a family doctor, I get to see a diverse population of patients throughout all stages of life.  I think patients deserve a flexible approach, so their individual needs can be understood and met, and in an unrushed atmosphere, to invite open, honest discussion.
