Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Quickly in & out of my room. Rude, arrogant, dismissive, & failed to assist me. Then lied in writing his progress notes in conflict with OR notes of Dr Uchiayama my surgeon.

Excellent. Met with Dr. Burdick to discuss DBS (deep brain surgery) for Parkinson's. Dr. Burdick answered my questions and preformed the surgery. I'd strongly recommend Dr. Burdick.

Dissmissive, rude, and not current with medical advances. I asked about the use of a prescription and he answered, "every treatment has risks and we want to avoid risks." Exact quote. He said nothing more. He then stared at me for 10 straight seconds in silence.

Dr. Adam Burdick (neurosurgeon) is the worst doctor I have ever seen/met. He was dismissive, condescending, cocky, and unempathetic. I could go on and on to describe his extremely horrible bedside manner. I refuse to have someone with his negative demeanor to treat me and, therefore, requested another neurosurgeon to treat my pituitary tumor and symptoms. Doctors should have empathy and kindness for their patients. Dr. Burdick has neither qualities and many others. My visit with Dr. Burdick left me feeling even worse.

I was referred to Dr. Burdick by my primary care physician. Dr. Burdick spent close to an hour with me, explaining the procedure I asked him about. He answered all of my questions, and I left feeling really positive about my future. Dr. Burdick has a very calm manner about himself, and showed me great respect. I am so glad to be in his care.
