Dr. Bursick is an excellent neuro surgeon. I was in pain 24/7 now I am pain free. A gold metal for Dr. Bursick!

August 11, 2016

first visit to Dr. Bursick. Dr. & staff were excellent.

August 10, 2016

Dr. Bursick has twice done surgery on me. He has alleviated a problem that two prior surgeries by other neuro-surgeons were unable to do. He is friendly and thorough. I came to see him due to an acute back problem where I have had chronic issues.

August 04, 2016

I have never had an adverse experience with Dr. Bursick. My history with him goes back to 1996+/- for consults and surgery and a few visits thereafter. I now find myself in need of his support and guidance again. I am grateful to have him consulting and directing me forward.
