Dr. John A. Burroughs, MD

Dr. John BurroughsDr. John Burroughs joined Cobblestone Family Health in the summer of 2000. He had been in private practice outside of Boise, Idaho before moving to Liberty with his family.

After graduating Cum Laude from Duke University, Dr. Burroughs earned his medical degree from Wake Forest University. Dr. Burroughs received residency training at the University of Utah where he was named Chief Resident for his final year of training.

Dr. Burroughs enjoys teaching and tries to incorporate this into his practice. He believes that the doctor-patient relationship should be one of partners working toward improved health. He uses a focus on evidence-based medicine to counsel his patients and involve them in making decisions for treating acute illness as well as for preventive care visits.

Family medicine provides a wonderful and exciting variety of challenges every day in the office and in the hospital. Dr. Burroughs loves the opportunity to work with patients of all ages: from newborns to ninety-year olds (and beyond). He was drawn to family medicine by the opportunity to prevent chronic disease (such as heart disease, diabetes and emphysema) andpromote lifestyle changes (such as weight loss and smoking cessation).  By seeing entire families in a practice, the family physician often gains a more complete understanding of the obstacles (and assistance) that a patient may have in obtaining their goal of excellent health.

Dr. Burroughs is a member of the medical staffs of Liberty Hospital and North Kansas City Hospital. He is a medical director of two local nursing homes as well as Crossroads Hospice. He serves as a volunteer physician for Liberty High Schools athletic teams. He stays active outside of the office keeping up with the schedules of his four children and coaching youth soccer. He plays soccer and is traveling the country (slowly) running marathons.
