Review for Dr. Burgess

He has totally replced both of my knees about 10 years ago; I've had absolutely no problem with them. He has helped me with some minor muscle injuries, recommending exercises that have helped.

Was too busy to explain anything and didn't even look at injury. Would never go back.
