Really efficient staff, Dr.'s were very appropriate in exam and made light of the situation ( I told them the wall jumped out in front of me and that is what happened to my toe injury ) . Very good experience with staff and DR

Great doc! Moves fast but I get full attention while I see him. Great knowledge of all my medic though he is even though he is a podiatrist. Residents/DPM students are very competent at debridement (done prior to Dr. Burns visit; Dr. Burns refines debridement if needed), much more competent than medical residents. Office and nursing staff are the best, well-oiled machine that I have seen. Friendly and they know me.

The ladies at the front desk are awesome, juggling a lot at the same time they still give precise info. and service beyond what they are asked to do..My Dr., Dr. Burns is just so professional, he shows great concern for me and my well being/health. I would recommend him to all because he is a caring and knowledgeable doctor.

I feel this provider listened to what I had to say, provided an understandable treatment plan, with options based on how the treatments suggested work. This is exactly how all office visits should be.
