“I met Dr. Burkhart five years ago when our older children were in preschool together. My one year old son was sick, and had been sick with antibiotic resistant ear infections, skin rashes, horrible stomach aches, serious constipation and blood in his stool. He was sliding down the growth chart. Our pediatrician had him on a large dose of Miralax to improve his symptoms and antibiotics to address the ear infections. It wasn’t working. Dr. Burkhart saw that we were in distress and immediately stepped up to help, as a friend, mother and doctor. We discussed his health, and more specifically his diet. After lengthy conversations and minimal blood work we finally had an accurate picture. Dr. Burkhart set up a plan which finally solved his issues. Thru managing his specific dietary needs he grew, gained strength, reduced his digestive and skin issues and is now on the top of the growth chart. Dr. Burkhart’s guidance changed my son’s development, happiness and health. We don’t know what we would have done without her. She is a compassionate, calm, kind person, a patient and thorough educator, good listener and an exceptional doctor.”
I am elated to have found Amy. I sense that she is the exact kind of professional and person that I need to get healed, body and mind.
I’m very glad I scheduled an appointment. It is very refreshing to see a doctor that spends time talking and listening to patients working to see the whole picture.
Dr Burkhart is remarkable. She has figured out and cleared up my ongoing issues: fatigue, brain fog, depression, weight gain, my myriad gluten allergy symptoms. No other Dr has been able to do so. I am so grateful to her for giving me my life back!
“Dr. Burkhart’s training as a physician, dietitian, and integrative practitioner is a unique and invaluable combination. Her kind and supportive demeanor, personal experience with celiac disease, and keen intelligence make her an excellent doctor, in particular for anyone with food intolerances and digestive issues. Dr. Burkhart has been an extraordinary ally of our celiac and gluten sensitivity community, volunteering her time to educate other physicians and dietitians throughout the Bay Area for years, serving on our nonprofit board, and sharing her knowledge with our members in support groups and events.”

I have had so much support, encouragement and solid advice for getting healthier with my celiac. It has made me very appreciative of her vast knowledge. It is not always easy for me to make change, but slowly I have done it.
Amy is insightful, easy to talk with, and cares deeply about her patients. She has helped me to make connections between my physical health and emotional habits, and every time I leave her office I feel rejuvenated and ready to focus on healing! 🙂
Doctor Burkhart is extremely knowledgeable about celiac disease, western medicine approaches, and nutritional approaches – which is so important for a celiac patient!! She is flexible and listens to me as a patient, and wants the best for me.
Dr. Burkhart has been extremely helpful in my recovery from digestive issues. She blends a knowledge of traditional and non traditional practices that is tailored to the needs of the individual. I would highly recommend her compassionate care.
Dr. Burkhart is everything you hope for in a doctor – smart, kind, and a skilled listener. For the first time in so long, I felt really heard by a doctor! She has a tremendous knowledge base and I loved working with her on a plan for moving forward.

“I have always been a very active person and enjoyed a full life, however, I had various health problems for more than 11 years that began taking their toll on my body. I sought help from many health care professionals during that time. I went from Medical Doctors (including a Gastroenterologist), Osteopaths, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists to Massage Therapist’s and no one was able to provide me with a correct diagnosis. Nor did they go beyond treating my symptoms and search for the etiology of my illnesses. It wasn’t until I met Dr. Amy Burkhart that my road to wellness began. 5 years ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease after Dr. Burkhart suggested I be tested. I was told by the Gastroenterologist to adopt a gluten free diet and offered an appointment with a dietician. For me, this wasn’t sufficient. I went on a strict gluten free diet and my symptoms and health improved, but I still wasn’t well. I had developed multiple food sensitivities from years of damaging my gut with gluten. Dr. Burkhart put together a comprehensive individualized program that put me on the path to wellness. She helped me discover my food sensitivities, replenish lost vitamins and minerals with high quality supplements and was available to see me through this process. Through her care, I became healthy again, resumed and surpassed all physical activities I had enjoyed many years earlier.”
