This was my first time visiting this doctor. He was courteous and very helpful. He answered my questions with respect and honesty. I'm looking forward to seeing him for all of my foot care.

He knew about my medical history and helped to reassure me that there wasn't any problem with the state of my large toenails.

I thought Dr. Burns was exceptional. I was first seen by his attending resident. Then taken to x-ray for one set of regular x-rays, than a second set for x-rays where I had to put weight on the broken leg. When Dr. Burns saw me, he was fully informed of my current situation, explained the good and bad in full detail and asked whether I had any questions. He was listened carefully to my questions, did not interrupt and his answer was very full and clear. I would recommend him highly!

Dr. Burns was friendly and attentive. I saw a resident before I saw him, and Calvin was very informative. Dr. Burns confirmed what Calvin had told me and elaborated as necessary. Dr. Burns offered a choice of treatment plans based on my preferences and concerns, explained what my options were, ordered a night splint for me as a start, and asked to see me in a month if I have not improved. Someone, other than the doctor, fitted me and showed me how to use it.

dr. Burns is not only a great doctor but probably the best doctor I have ever had, and I have had many. He is always kind and informative. He is a class act and my only wish is that you appreciate him. He deserves nothing but praise in my very honest opinion. My wife and I both love and respect him.
