I was first seen by an intern, and then waited at least 30 minutes before the doctor came in. I felt like the appointment was insanely rushed and i didn't feel like i was given a comprehensive breakdown of what i needed to do as far as further action. I felt that because i didn't have an immediate serious injury,i wasn't given proper attention. He gave me some print outs about what to do to care for my situation, but rushed through explaining everything and i felt like i didn't have the space to ask the questions that i wanted nor did he seem engaged enough to have thoughtful responses.

I am very happy to have Dr Burns as my daughters doctor. He is very knowledgeable and explains things to my daughter and I when we ask. The surgery went extremely well and my daughter may be playing as soon as late August.
