My experience with Randall Scott Sims was not a positive one. He engaged in an inappropriate relationship with my now former wife. He has since had to move on from Banner Health as a result. I do NOT recommend trusting this man in your care.

This guy is horrible! Do not go to him. All the reviews on here are spot on. He does not listen, cuts you off, yells at you if you try to get a word in. Not to mention pricking me with a safety pin, drawing blood, then sticking it back in a bowl to use again!

Dr. Burnett is a very knowledgeable, skilled and caring surgeon. He was able to remove my tumor and I am on my way to being cancer free. I feel fortunate to have him as my doctor and would recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

Gary Carlton Dec 04 2019

Review for Dr. Burnett

Terrible. He fired me as a patient in the middle of a procedure because I complained to his assistant about waiting twenty minutes in the reception area and THEN being handed multiple pages of legal documents to complete quickly. I consider him unprofessional and unethical.
