The Doctor and his staff were very concerned about my questions..and sincerely respected my opinion. I would not be one of his patients if he did not value my opinion.

Dr Bursick treated like a whole person not just a body part. He listened, didn't rush me so I could explain my symptoms and the injury that occurred. For the first time since my injury I feel confident he that he will find the cause of my pain and he wasn't afraid to order tests to find out.

Felt a little rushed with the questions and answers. It was hard to take everything in that was being said about my condition. I would have appreciated a little more detail regarding the surgery option and the recovery timeframe to have a better idea of when I might be able to go back to work. I'm not sure about the medications that were dispensed--from whom to get refills, when and how long I am to take them. I was alone at the visit, so sometimes it is hard to take everything in that is being said. A more thorough printout of the doctor/patient discussion would have been appreciated. I will call the office with some of my questions.

Dr. Bursick made sure that he and I were on the same page.Dr Bursick ordered tests and lab work to see what all is going on from my neck down to my low back. I really like the fact that Dr. Bursick just tells like it is.
