Dr. Burns has been my ophthalmologist since 1991, and I've had no reason to try one of his competitors over that time. My eye health and vision have been quite good, other than nearsightedness, despite having oddly-formed optic nerves. Dr. Burns has respected my request, that he under-prescribe for corrective lenses, to encourage my eyes to exercise in focusing on distant objects. Over time, my nearsightedness has gradually improved. Dr. Burns makes periodic assessments of my optic nerves.

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.
