Visits at Dr. Burns' office are always a pleasure. Although the wait has usually been 45+ minutes, the magazines are varied and up to date. I'm especially impressed with how efficient the office is run, and how pleasant, actually cheerful!, all the staff is. Yet everyone is very professional and on task. Dr. Burns is one of the most knowledgeable physicians I've ever seen. He's very thorough, explains everything, and readily answers questions? But I've never felt rushed.
