Robert Burton appeared as Doc Burrage. What do we have here????? Another Doc Burrage?

There were two doctors before Doc Burrage although neither of them were ever named or given credit.  Those two episodes were 'The Sharpshooter' and 'The Marshal.'  In 'End of a Young Gun' Lucas told Hank he would go get Doc Sedley?  Doc Burrage was first introduced to The Rifleman in 'The Pet'.
Doc Burrage was a regular character ~ how many different actors played Doc Burrage?  Can you name them?

Although he began acting late in life and his career spanned just ten years and one hundred and sixty-three credits, he sure was busy.

Born: August 13, 1895 in Eastman, Georgia
Died: September 29, 1962 (age 67) in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California
