Reviews

Dr . Burwell is EXCELLENT, he pretty much saved my life and with the help of his assistance Arthur J. The combination of the two, great team: I've been to one other psychiatrist, but I don't think I need to say much in words b/ c the it it was great I wouldn't need to see Dr. Burwell. At anytime you need to reach the office Arthur is just so great and comforting. No regrets AT ALL


My experience with Dr. Burwell has been nothing but a positive one! I was nervous at first to see a Psychiatrist but I developed a little of Postpartum Depression after having my first child 8 months ago and Dr. Burwell helped me enormously after just one visit. He is kind, approachable and very sensitive to how I was feeling, needless to say it was a positive outcome. Highly recommend him!


The Savant Care administrative team is very helpful in keeping scheduling and communication smooth and efficient. Dr. Burwell himself is personable, professional, and very thorough with individual care. He doesn't just push medication and took a holi...stic assessment to consider all factors of my treatment. I've seen psychiatrists since I was 14, it's historically been a hit or miss process (mostly miss). I'm glad to have found a doctor I am comfortable with who has not put me through months of trial and error with medications. Thank you Dr. Burwell and team!


Dr. Burwell is incredible. When I was switched from Dr. Cho to Dr. Burwell I was a little nervous because I'm used to female psychiatrists, but he stepped in and made me feel so comfortable. I feel like I'm talking to a friend. He is so knowledgeable... with medications and doesn't try to rush the appointment. My mental health has improved tremendously within the last two years due to his expertise. I recommend him to all my friends. Kent is also wonderful. If I've had any issues with my pharmacy, I email Kent and he responds within hours. He's very timely and so polite. Awesome team!

I have worked with Dr. Burwell and Laura Jung for almost a year and they are both highly effective, knowledgeable, compassionate... and I would recommend them to anymore who is looking for help.


I've only had one appointment with him but I was definitely not disappointed. He addressed my concerns right away and he was very thorough and understanding. Definitely recommend!


Dr. Burwell is great and the SavantCare staff is always very helpful, friendly and responsive!


My experience with Dr. Burwell and his Assistant Kent have been top notch. Very professional and helpful. A great team that I would suggest to all in need.


Dr. Burwell is the best! He always takes the time to really listen and understand what is going on with me during each of our sessions. He makes me feel comfortable and is very easy to talk to about any issue. He feels more like a friend than a doctor. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and always willing to help. I recommend them every time!


I am a new patient to Savant Care's and to Dr. Joseph Burwell and I have to say that I am so happy that I found them. Their assistant Kent is a very helpful person and they really care about their patient's. They have a prompt response making me feel cared for, thank you to all of you. I recommend them 100%.


My parents were always against me seeing a psychiatrist for my mental health issues since my early teenage years. They told me psychotropic medications are always harmful. They put me on therapy straight away. I am glad my therapist was somehow able ...to convince them to see a psychiatrist for more help with medications. I saw my first psychiatrist 2 years ago when I was 16. The doctors in the area were never too convincing for me and I knew I was not able to find the right match from any of the 3 doctors I had seen till late last year. In November 2017, I decided to switch to another doctor after my insurance changed. Upon doing a directory search I stumbled upon Savant Care and Dr. Joseph Burwell who was in the area. I looked at his profile and found he was just starting his career which was odd given the fact all the psychiatrists I had seen so far had many years of experience. But I decided to give it a shot and called their office to seek an appointment. The booking process was online but not too difficult leaving aside a few basic hiccups. Their people on the phone were very helpful and guided me through the process. The initial session went very well and it was a very pleasant experience. I knew this could well be the doctor that could help me change my life! He has a calming effect on me and explained everything that was causing me to think the way I was in terms of my mental health. He was also not too pleased with all the meds I was prescribed before. Anyways, he put me on two meds after explaining everything about them. I was asked to follow up in a month which I did. I could clearly tell things were rapidly changing with me and I was starting to enjoy my life much more, was able to focus on things much better. I think the meds were starting to play its part. To cut the long story short, Dr. Burwell is hands down the best match for me in my goal to achieve the best possible mental health for me. He has always been very helpful and compassionate. Thank you, Dr. Burwell! I would also like to thank his admin assistants who have helped me throughout. Cheers!


It's always nerve-racking to go to a new doctor. Especially if you don't have a recommendation from a friend or previous doctor and you're going in blind, as it were. That's why I feel compelled to write this review, in case those of you who have mo...re foresight than me to look for some personal reviews about the place before going. Dr. Burwell is really amazing and a cool doctor. He made me feel very comfortable and was genuinely interested in things that I had to say. I have seen quite a few over the years and let me tell you that is not always the case, nor do I even expect it anymore. So when a doctor loves what they do, cares for their patients, shows empathy and understanding in a high capacity -- they have my recommendation. 5 stars for Dr. Burwell and SavantCare. Plus, they're covered with Anthem Blue Cross so there you go 🙂


I normally write shorter reviews on google maps, but my enthusiasm for the care I have received by this psychiatrist and staff has been so exceptional I have decided to write a more lengthy review on yelp. In terms of psychiatrists, Dr. Burwell comp...letely exceeds all expectations of what you would expect out of a quality psychiatrist. The first time I inquired to ask me about my medication, he responded to me through his excellent assistant WITHIN THE HOUR. Let me repeat, WITHIN THE HOUR. I have never experienced nor heard of such responsiveness from a psychiatrist. When I had an appointment and arrived a few minutes early, he even saw me early and spent the extra time discussing my background. This is a psychiatrist that truly cares about his patients more than his paycheck. If you are not familiar with bipolar disorder, you are typically prescribed two medications, an antipsychotic and a mood stabilizer. I received my prescription for the antipsychotic, and my symptoms started clearing up. I thought it was a long shot, but I asked Dr. Burwells assistant if the doctor would prescribe the second medication, the mood stabilizer, that we discussed in our previous appointment. Without hesitation, Dr. Burwell prescribed my new medication and promptly informed me of its arrival so I could start taking it the same day! Had it been ANY doctor other than Dr. Burwell, I wouldn't have bothered asking. I also must take a moment to mention the wonderful professional administrative support that Dr. Burwell's office has through Savant Care. In particular I would like to mention Nathan, who acts as my principal liason between me and Dr. Burwell. He is always quick to respond to my message to Dr. Burwell, always the same day. I call them pretty frequently, and never do I ever detect any negativity at my frequent calling. On the other hand, they are always positive, professional, and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Burwell to ANYONE who seeks compassionate, friendly, and responsive care.
