About Dr. Emily

Board Certified Internal Medicine

Dr. Burk is an osteopathic trained physician where the focus is on the whole person, not just a disease.

Biography

Dr. Burk was raised in Lansing, MI. After studying Physiology at Michigan State University, her education took her to Glendale, AZ for medical school where she served as class vice president and president. She also served on the National Board of Students of Osteopathic Medicine Association. Intimately involved in Healthcare Law and administration, she frequently went to Washington DC to discuss the future of American healthcare. There she had the opportunity to sit down in small groups and even one-on-one to speak with Senators and State Representatives. Dr. Burk also testified in Michigan to stop an unprecedented budget cut to medical education.

As a medical student, Dr. Burk fell in love with internal medicine and the relationships formed between a doctor and a patient. She completed residency in Internal Medicine at Detroit Medical Center, Huron Valley Sinai where she was selected as Chief Resident.

After graduating in 2015, Dr. Burk traveled the country providing care in areas of need. As a “Locum Tenens” physician, she has traveled to hospitals in need of physicians; working to care for patients without access otherwise. She has worked in tiny hospitals with 45 beds to tertiary care facilities with 900 beds. These experiences have given her a unique perspective on American Healthcare, its delivery, patient experiences; and a unique passion for excellence in healthcare.

This passion for providing excellence in patient care has led her to Robinson MD, where health, not illness is the focus. Dr. Burk will join in Dr. Robinson’s vision of comprehensive and personalized approach to wellness and preventive care. In addition, her background includes specific skills in helping the patient with complex medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, chronic lung disease, and a variety of other chronic conditions. She will help you focus on all aspects of health optimization including mental wellness, feasible and realistic lifestyle changes, and prescription medication management. She also brings her extensive hospital experience to the practice in the event that you are hospitalized. She will work closely with our hospitalist group to assure you have the best coordination of care.

In her spare time, Dr. Burk enjoys gardening, playing beach volleyball and cooking.
