best care and advice possible.

Dr. Burns performed surgery on my foot/ankle to replace a tendon about a year ago. I was seen at regular intervals throughout my recovery, with the final visit being this week. All staff in and out of the hospital was very professional and caring; pain management was excellent. Dr. Burns also ordered follow up visits from my local Home Nursing Agency to monitor vitals, check for infection, and provide some in-home physical therapy. All phases of my care were coordinated by Dr. Burn's office. My foot is great; I'm very pleased with the results and would highly recommend Dr. Burns and his team!

Dr. Burns consistently demonstrated professionalism. He worked at a fast pace yet exhibited care and concern for my specific problem. I always felt he was concentrating on my needs during his treatment/examination.

everybody did a grate job there

May 15, 2017

Dr. Burns and staff listened completely to everything I had to say and every one of my concerns. He and his staff explained everything that had to do with my medical problem and my solutions for treatment. I learned more about my ongoing condition and possible treatments in the 40 minutes with Dr. Burns than I had in the 5 years with my previous physician. I will be back to see Dr. Burns and would recommend him and his staff.

super impressed with the staff and Dr. Burns. He is thorough in his assessment; thinks about it first without brushing off my concerns; professional and optimistic about recovery.
