March 20, 2020 6:21 AM

Wait to long two see dr.

March 10, 2020 3:26 PM

Always knowledgeable and respectful. Consults medical history and clarifies results. Doesn't overuse medical terms; clarifies if he does use a specific term. Listens to me.

March 10, 2020 3:26 PM

Fast, efficient and amiable. Takes the time with me, so I don't have an issue if he is running behind.

March 6, 2020 11:45 AM

Dr. Burseth spent a great deal of time with me reviewing my medical history. He listened very well and answered all my questions. I believe he is an excellent doctor.

March 6, 2020 11:45 AM

Overall very good experience.

March 5, 2020 2:17 PM

Dr. Buresth is very thorough and listens to what I'm complaining about.

March 5, 2020 2:17 PM

The ladies at the desk are very pleasant and patient and also the nurses that call to let you know how your labs were -

February 29, 2020 9:19 AM

Keep up the superb treatment from your entire staff.

February 25, 2020 3:55 PM

Quality service and people.

February 25, 2020 7:39 AM

the Doctor would ask me questions and I would answer to the best of my ability, but he always responded with "really?" or "are you sure" - and I felt uneasy talking with him. I do not plan to return to this doctor in the future.

February 21, 2020 8:02 AM

The staff was friendly, helpful and caring. The doctor was interested, in me. I totally enjoyed my visit.

February 21, 2020 8:02 AM

Outstanding. I told my doctor that I appreciate his work and that my visit is of great value to me. NICE WORK!

It was excellent !

January 27, 2020 1:53 PM

I am very confident.

December 27, 2019 12:21 PM

It was a good experience to find out I had two arteries partially blocked. That same day I had two stents put in. I have not had any problems since.

December 23, 2019 9:31 AM

It was a very good visit. Doctor and staff were all excellent.

December 16, 2019 10:21 PM

Dr Burseth spends a good amount of time with his patients, never rushes. Unfortunately that sometimes delays appointments but I can deal with that.

December 16, 2019 1:44 PM

Dr. Burseth always provides excellent cardiac care.

December 5, 2019 3:53 PM

I had a very good experience with this provider. He listened and provided serious answers.

November 19, 2019 8:49 AM


November 19, 2019 8:40 AM

I always have a good experience when I see the doctor, I fell he has good knowledge of my personal health condition.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

It was the worst medical visit I have ever had in my life. He was intimidating and belittling especially when we talked about a neurologist's diagnosis that I had suffered a ministroke during a stent implant conducted by another cardiologist. I answered the questions the assistant asked me and the doctor picked up her notes, dropped them on the desk and referred to them as my pile of complaints. I did not go to complain but as a follow up to an ER visit. I am so uncomfortable with this doctor and the practice I don't want to call about an issue I had with a new prescription. I called the pharmacy for consultation.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

I am seeking out another cardiologist and practice.

November 11, 2019 8:59 AM

Had a good talking to, my provider.

November 11, 2019 8:59 AM

A good experience all the time I was being treated.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is an excellent doctor and I know that he cares about me and my health. Between the waiting room and the examination office I waited 45 minutes. I am retired, so I have no problem waiting.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Always a good experience

October 17, 2019 7:00 PM

This dr. and this office is outstanding. Well organized, polite, efficient and prompt. The doctor is great to work with and cares about my wellbeing.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

I'm very satisfied with Dr. Burseth and all of his staff.

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth was very attentive & very caring. He ordered a stress test for me. Nuclear since I'd recently suffered from sciatica & he didn't want me to aggravate my back or legs by prolonged activity on the treadmill. I thought that was very wise & considerate of him.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Polite & pleasant & thoughtful & encouraging.

August 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Everyone in this office is very professional & helpful. Especially impressed with support staff on front desk.

August 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is my cardiologist, specialist. I have never been to a doctor who studies my history and listens to my current report about my blood pressure and activity -- as much as Dr.Burseth. He really knows me and catches up with my current good health and current activities. He is a great support for me. I know he tries to evaluate all of my questions according to his knowledge of things that can help me. Even though my care taker studies and journals all my daily ups and downs, Dr. Burseth knits it altogether and congratulate me for my diet and my exercise. Then according to blood tests, he will call me later and make suggestions. How wonderful, he cares and studies my health. Just like a dream come true. We are a dream team keeping me alive and happy. I am 90 and previously thought I was invincible -- but my body need care and this team is caring for my body. Thank You Dr. Burseth.

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth has been my heart doctor for over 27 years - He is fantastic!

July 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is very professional. He is open to data I have on my Apple watch and takes it into account as we talk about my heart.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Extreme trust with this doctor

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

A visit to Dr. Burseth is a pleasure. The staff is always friendly and professional. The doctor is always on time. He seems to care about my health and what I need to do to maintain it. He has been my doctor for a long time, and I'm glad he is.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM


July 7, 2019 7:00 PM

My concern with your group is that I have to wait far too long on the phone to make an appointment or change an appointment and then I waited a half hour to see the doctor.

July 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I like the doctor because he is an attentive person.

June 24, 2019 7:00 PM

All went went. Doctor explained about the new medications I am taking.

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is a very good doctor but very business like. Not very friendly.

June 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is very good cardiologist. For last 3 month I did not see any other doctor, so I answered NO to many questions.

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Very glad that I decided to see Dr. Burseth. Better than most of the doctors I have had to see recently.

May 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is concerned about my heart, and making sure I don't have any problems.

May 21, 2019 7:00 PM

It is always pleasure to meet Mr. Burseth. He takes time to discuss any issue. Takes time to review blood work and other health related questions/issues.

May 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Burseth is excellent in every way. He pays a lot of attention to my at-home blood pressure records. He studies my condition and orders blood tests that give evidence for his suggestions. I am 90 yrs old and I have seen a lot of doctors. My opinion, Dr Burseth is the finest doctor ever. I am a lucky man to be his patient. No other doctor ever studied my behavior, my diet, my records, my tests results as much as Dr Burseth studies me. He corrects my poor eating habits with education not criticism; although, my wife appreciates the corrections I am using. I would not be this old, nor this active if it were not for Dr Burseth and my wife. They are my life savers. Dr.Burseth's office staff obviously likes me and make me feel wonderful at every visit. Most of my friends are passed away, but my wife and I both recommend telling every one we know that I have the best cardiologist in the world.

May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

My Dr. and the staff are always wonderful and polite. I am always happy to visit.

May 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Burseth has been my cardiologist since 1996. He is an excellent provider.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

1st time seeing new cardiologist - chose to seed new doctor as I wasn't feeling good. My 90 yr. old mother has been a patient of his for years. I liked the care he has given her I personally, will continue to seek his treatment & advise for my health care issues.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

He is knowledgeable and very conscientious.

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM

feel confident being a patient managed by Dr Burseth

April 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Burseth methodically conducted tests over the past year. Based on test results and visits he recommend diet, exercise and rest as preventative measures. My cousin and doctor recommended him.

I find Dr. Burseth very patient, knowledgeable, and kind. He knows what & when I should have test done. On all appts.

December 25, 2018 6:00 PM

The experience was good. I learned why I was asked by my primary care provider to ask Dr Burseth if I needed to stop my low dose aspirin for a bladder procedure. He explained why sometimes it was not necessary.

November 18, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Burseth was recommended to me and if someone needed a cardiologist, I wouild recommend him

November 7, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is thorough and recommends what I should be doing.

November 4, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Burseth is a great doctor and always has my best interests in mind.

October 28, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Eric Burseth has been my cardiologist since the 1980's. He is very knowledgeable but never arrogant. He is kind, patient and thorough. He has my trust and respect.

October 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. seemed off his usual. Hope all is ok with him and his family.

August 27, 2018 7:00 PM

positive, helpful, and complete. All questions answered

August 27, 2018 7:00 PM

I had to wait over 40 minutes to get in to see. I believe this caused some anxiety. Nurse had trouble with the blood pressure. My time with the doctor was interrupted by a nurse calling him out of our session. Another 10 minute delay.

August 25, 2018 7:00 PM

I was treated promptly and with care and respect by the whole staff.
