There is no one on this planet like Dr. Burns. In all regards of intelligence, patient care, trust, urgency responsiveness, ability to break conditions down and explain with care and precision to a patient, he exceeds time and time again. I travel out of state just to stay in his care!

First of all, he was on time for both of my visits!! This is rare. Dr. Burns was attentive and took the time to really listen. He seemed to be very knowledgeable, is extremely thorough, and he explained things so I easily understood. He also made me feel very much at ease. He is different from other specialists I have gone to and I am grateful I made the move to see him.
