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. ...more

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.
