Dr. Burns was excellent. This was the first time we had met him since Dr. Leonard had left.

January 18, 2018

We love Dr. Burns. we is always great with the kids and always listen to our questions and concerns. He answers questions in a way that we understand.

January 16, 2018

We usually always see Dr Burns or Tamara. They always listen and don't mind being asked questions. Both our kids love them!

Dr. Burns is a very knowledgeable physician. Spoke to my son as if he was important. A very good doctore.

While I think Dr. Burns is knowledgeable, I wish I felt he knew us better. Considering my child has had some issues very early on, we have been in often enough that I would think he would know my name (and not just call me "mom") and would remember more about his health history. For example, he has an allergy and Dr. Burns's suggestion for health follow-up involved what I would consider to be something that he is allergic to (yet I didn't think of this until after the visit so in fairness, could not ask).

words cannot express how thankful I am with Dr. Burn and his team of girls! They are the very best and so helpful. Dr. Burns is so compassionate and helpful. This is probably the 2nd time i met him. The last time i met him was maybe 12 years ago but i transferred to Zuck rd with Dr. Leonard. He is beyond great, caring, and respectful. I will definitely switch my kids to be seen by him and Dr. Tamara as well. My daughter and son felt very comfortable around him too which is the BEST feeling a mother can have. Thank you again everyone.

I LOVE the fact Dr. Burns did a full body physical of my son, including checking his spine. I was very pleased with the way he conducted the appointment.

We really like Dr. Burns. He always talks to my kids like they're his number one priority. Even when he's talking to me about them and a particular diagnosis, he addresses the kids and talks to them explaining everything, then asks isn't that right mom? For confirmation that I also understood what he was talking about. Both my children willingly go to the Dr. without fuss and talk to Dr. Burns when he enters the room.
