About

JoAnne Burris helps a patient at the UK Polk-Dalton Clinic.

JoAnne Burris, a certified nurse midwife, sees patients at the UK Polk-Dalton Clinic and the new UK Midwife Clinic.
JoAnne Burris found the experience of giving birth to her second child, with the help of a certified nurse midwife, such a profoundly different experience from the way her first child had been born, that she felt called to become a CNM herself. She knew she wanted to help other women experience pregnancy and birth as a natural - not scary or traumatic - life stage and realize their potential to remain in control of their health.

So a year after her son was born, Burris quit her 9-to-5 job and started the process of becoming a CNM. She returned to college to complete her associate's degree in nursing, then acquired the years of labor and delivery nursing experience required before attending midwifery school.

From her personal experiences, Burris knows putting women at the center of their care and encouraging them to believe they are in control are crucial first steps for ensuring positive outcomes.

    Joanne went ABOVE and beyond! She really took the time to listen to me. She messaged me on epic after the visit with answers to questions to wanted to look more into. I love this entire practice!

    I saw Joanne and she was hands down the best provider anywhere I've ever seen. She was kind, friendly, supportive, she listened to me, and she asked permission before she did anything.

      All of the care providers have been very informative and supportive of the patient. They are happy to give you options, and instead of pressuring you, they encourage you to take time to make those decisions.

      Joanna was incredible. She is fully invested in patient care. She listens with patience and compassion, she is never condescending or critical. I had the experience this visit of watching her broach an uncomfortable subject (hypertension/prevention) with care and tact rather than judgement. The only reason I rated one of the above as a 4 instead of 5 is because she didn't go into specifics of which medication we would try at the next appt and pros/cons.

      JoAnne really took the time to listen. She eased many concerns I had as a first time mother. The appointment was thorough and it was clear she was willing to give me as much time as I needed to work through new information and new questions.
