Dr. Burrell enjoys many outdoor activities such as hiking and gardening. During the summer months, he enjoys boating on Lake Winnisquam. The Burrell's enjoy their many pets including, Autumn, the family Golden Retriever. Autumn is a regular visitor at the office of Lake Podiatry, PA., and you will most likely catch a glimpse of her resting quietly in the front office. Autumn's little buddy the African Grey Parrot, Othello, may also visit the office to make our patients smile.
