I believe that patients and their families should be fully engaged in their care as they go through treatment for cancer. As a result, I think that educating patients and their families on their illnesses is extraordinarily important and I take the time to do this for all my patients.

I enjoy bringing the great advances that have taken place in the field of oncology to my patients, to give them the best chance of survival.

Sept. 15, 2019
I had lab work done that required input from my PCP and this provider. I was able to get my PCP's input. I sent through 3 requests for input to this provider, did not receive a call back until after the 3rd request and that was the day before my follow up appointment. The phone message left for me by the provider was inaudible.

Dr Burfeind is the best Oncologist. I will never complain about having to wait more than 15 min. to see him. He takes time with all his patients and is genuinely concerned about the wellness of everyone he sees.

Aug. 12, 2019
I am a new patient with advanced cancer and little medical history available to the doctor. He did a great job with what I was able to tell him and was very patient gathering the information. He was able to schedule further tests quickly and start treatment immediately.
