My initial visit with Dr. Burgar went great. I was feeling confident I had found a hand surgeon I could feel comfortable with and trust. My follow up visit two months after a steroid injection into the carpal tunnel did not go so well. I was seen by her PA, who seemed to have a slight attitude of superiority, who inferred that I didn't need to see Dr. Burgar when I asked about her. I made another f/u appointment to have another steroid injection and discuss surgery. I was assured by the scheduler I'd see her. After waiting for nearly an hour in the waiting room, I was called in, and told Dr. Burgar would be in to see me. Nope, it was her PA. I immediately was put off. I wanted to talk to Dr. Burgar, not her. When I said I wanted Dr. Burgar to give me the injection, she hesitated, and said that would be a longer wait. It was clear that there was no plan for Dr. Burgar to see me. I was bitterly disappointed. When I make an appointment to see the doctor, I expect to see her!!

This review is for the front and back office staff of Dr. A. Burgar, they are absolutely horrible and unprofessional. I have been trying to get someone to follow up with doctors request for my surgery for a about 4 -5 month. Nothing happen, only give me a lame excuse about everything. Find better office if you want dissent quality service . They are not good.

I was going to have a finger joint fused by another doctor, decided to receive a second opinion. Dr. Burgar recommended a different procedure rebuilding the joint, I have regained 95% of the functionality of the repaired joint.
