Service to the Public

In addition to all of these accolades, she has a strong commitment to service. She spent the summer after medical school with Ride for World Health, biking across the country from San Diego, CA to Bethany Beach, DE to educate on wellness and to raise funds for world health. During her residency, she spent time at a mission hospital in Papua New Guinea as a general surgeon.

According to Dr Burgers, “these experiences taught me about my own perseverance and the strength of people during difficult times. Not all roads are smooth, but my hope is to guide my patients through the rough spots in achieving their optimum breast health.”

Dr Burgers is an educator. She serves as an Assistant Professor for the General Surgery Residency where she teaches surgical and medical residents advanced surgery techniques and treatment approaches. She educates the community through a variety of lecture series. She has been an invited guest speaker at many educational conferences.

Dr Burgers is a member of the prestigious national organizations American Society of Breast Surgeons, Society of Surgical Oncology, and American College of Surgeons. Additionally, she belongs to the Institute of Breastfeeding and Lactation Education and the Society for Integrative Oncology. She is also involved in her local community as a member of the Broward County Medical Association and the Florida Medical Association. She is active participant in the local American Cancer Society. She loves wearing pink all year round.

The fight to treat breast cancer is very personal to Dr Burgers because her mother is a survivor and her grandmother died too young from the disease.

We look forward to meeting you!
