Dr. Burns Jr' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Burns Jr "I earned my medical degree in 1986 at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, but I have lived in Louisville since that time. I completed an internship, residency, and two-year postdoctoral research fellowship in corneal disease at University of Louisville in 1992 and I have been in private practice since then. I am certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. I am also a Fellow of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and I am a founding member of the Suburban Excimer Laser Center, PLLC. I have treated many patients and their families since starting my practice, but the care I provide and the concern I have for my patients has never changed. I want you to keep and enjoy the best vision you can for the rest of your life. I want to earn your trust. Please take a few moments to explore my website. After you do, I hope you will call on me and my staff for the quality eye care you deserve. "

Though I didn't necessarily receive good news on my left eye on a follow-up visit, every one in the office including Dr. Burns is polite and professional. Being a former health care provider you can sense the genuine concern of all the staff.

I’m a new patient who called with conjunctivitis. Helpful, knowledgeable staff worked me in. I was sen before I’d even finished the H&P paperwork. Efficient, we’ll-organized staff was never idle.
