Dr. Burcham did my 1st cataract surgery and will perform my 2nd one. He explains things well and makes the experience as good as eye surgery can be. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Burcham and all his staff. My wife has been to see Dr. Burcham as well and we wouldn't go anywhere else.

Front staff is very rude in this office!!! Their main goal is to collect money; need some customer service training ASAP.. I feel sorry for the doctors for allowing those people to represent their business. Don't make the mistake I made by going to this place. Not recommended!!!
