Partnering With Patients for Better Care: Meet Dr. Stacy Burns
Dr. Stacy Burns encourages patients to be involved in every step of their healthcare. “One of the things I enjoy most about practicing medicine is the relationships I build with my patients,” says Burns. “I believe doctor-patient relationships should be built on mutual respect and trust to ensure good communication.”
Burns is a board-certified internal medicine doctor who recently joined LeBauer HealthCare on Elam Avenue in Greensboro. She is taking new patients and has experience providing preventive care, diagnosis, and treatment to adults of all ages.
The Power of Prevention

She also recommends having routine physicals and follow-ups in order to prevent problems.
Making an Impact Through Internal Medicine
