dr. burns did help me in everyway ..I needed someone to explain everything to me and he did just that .also what treatment I could expect and asked me what I thought which was what I wanted

August 16, 2017

Dr Burns continues to be above average and the best Ortho I ever seen. We have been dealing with this injury for 8 years and every visit is better than the last. He and his staff are AWESOME.

Dr. Burns and his staff are the perfect example of providers of excellent care. I have been very sick recently, and if it wasn't for Dr. Burns and his critical thinking abilities and overall professional skills, I might not be here to fill out this survey. He is to be commended for his quality of care, excellent clinical skills, care and treatment planning, along with coordination of that care with other members of my health care team!

Excellent care. Hopefully I won't need to return, but if I do, I know I'll be well taken care of.

to long waiting to be seen

July 24, 2017

Despite a delay from my scheduled appointment time, my experience with my care provider and his staff was excellent.

July 20, 2017

The assistant was much more attentive and supportive than the doctor himself. The doctor gave me options and pretty much ticked them off the list of possibilities as fast as he threw them out there The assistant listened to what I told him and responded with respect and knowledge. I felt that the doctor in a hurry and just wanted to discount all the effort I had made to correct my condition before I went to see him.
