Accepting new patients
Headshot of Margaret A. Burns, MD

My philosophy of medicine is to provide my patients with objective, evidence based medical advice in order to determine the best approach for their individual healthcare by using a teamwork approach. This philosophy is extremely important in an era where there are multiple treatment options available for many types of medical problems. In addition to finding the correct diagnosis and treatment for various healthcare problems, I am a firm believer in preventative medicine and help to guide my patients through these tests, beginning in the teenage years extending through menopause. My patients find, that while I am very thorough, I am also compassionate and empathic to their healthcare needs.
