Dr. Burke treats the whole person

"

(Kristine Burke, MD) I just love that Dr. Burke is interested in treating the whole person and especially understands a ton more than a "regular" doctor. In particular the importance of vitamin supplementation to balance the body under stress and also some of the genetic stuff. Other doctors place far too much emphasis on prescribing drugs (which may have their place at times) when all is needed is a better lifestyle.

Dr. Burke Way Ahead of the Curve

"

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I love the fact that it's "treat the illness, not the symptoms." I was talking to another person about the treatment that I was receiving and they were shocked that Dr. Burke would be treating me that way. He also added that normally others with a similar issue have to tell their doctor to prescribe the treatment, but instead she was way ahead of the curve. Props to Dr. Burke.

Help Your Diabetes Testimonial

"

I saw an ad on television talking about Certified Functional Medicine and I had never heard of this practice before and I was dubious but thought I would give it a try. I went to one of their meetings and it sounded pretty good so I thought I would give it a try. Within two weeks my blood sugar was showing some improvement, within a week month I didn't have to take insulin shot every day and within six weeks i wasn't using insulin at all. So what Dr. Kristine Burke, MD said at that first meeting was true, their program can reverse Type 2 Diabetes they can with their True Health plan. I want to thank Dr. Burke and her staff for their good nature and devotion. A quote, "Do all good you can, By all the means you can, In all ways you can, In all the places you can, At all times you can, As long as ever you can." - John Wesley Keep it up Dr. Burke!

Worth the money

"

I’ve been a patient for 10 years. At first, I thought it was very expensive to be in this care and had to budget for the membership. But after a few years I noticed neighbors and friends of the same age dealing with diabetes, heart disease, stroke and I wasn’t going through any of this. It made me realize the preventive measures I’ve taken and the work I’ve done with Dr. Burke and THCFM has better equipped my body to age gracefully. I really believe in this practice. The expense is more dealing with the disease later in life than budgeting for this membership and doing the preventive measures to take care of myself now. Every time I see other doctors, they mention they hope they’re in as good of shape as me when they’re my age. I thank Dr. Burke and her team for getting me where I am today and keeping me healthy.

Having a personal health team that are all so dedicated to the care and compassion of their clients has made my experience wonderful. The fact that you all are in the loop about my personal case and there to assist one another and me has taken a lot of the burden off my shoulders so I can focus on what is important, taking care of my health needs.

Different level of care

"

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Burke, Hilda and the rest of the staff at True Health. I have never experienced this level of care, concern and detail regarding my health with any other healthcare provider. The fact that I am treated as a whole person, rather than a set of symptoms, is very encouraging and I look forward to continued positive outcomes!

Greatly Appreciative

"

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I greatly appreciate the availability of the Dr.'s time and short waits for appointments. I think being rushed in and out serves little purpose. From the day I started going to Dr. Burke I expressed my expectations of my doctor, which are what we get now. I'm sure there is a lot I don't understand in terms of insurance coverage and laws in this state, but if there is something I can do as a patient I'd love to know what that is. There is only one way to make changes and that is to drive it!

I Lost 62lbs on HYD!

"

I was successful on the Help Your Diabetes Program. I enjoyed the recipes and the support of Dr. Burke and my coach, Dina. On the program, I was able to get off all medication (Lisinopril, Insulin, Glipizide and Metformin) and lost 62 pounds.

I Love This Practice Model!

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I love this practice model! I've never felt better. Find the problem and fix it instead of treat the problem with drugs - brilliant!

Not Just Treating Symptoms, Overall Health Evaluated

"

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I like that I am not just treated for a specific symptom, but that my overall health is evaluated. I like that I can call and usually get an appointment for myself or my children within 24 hours, and sometimes the same day if crucial. The fact that my daughter gets free healthcare through her employer (Sutter Health) and sees Sutter providers but she is willing to pay to see Dr. Burke is a huge statement!

This program worked!

(Help Your Diabetes) This program worked for me as prescribed. Dina was a great coach! It is a life style change for us and I wish I had taken a diet approach from the time I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
