      Everyone in the office was very nice and helpful. A staff that is welcoming sets the tone for the entire visit I believe. Dr. was very good at explaining things as well as giving examples as to why and how things can happen. Very satisfied with my experience there and have been for a long time.
      in Gilberts IL |
      I would definitely recommend Dr. Burks. I found him to be down to earth and comfortable to talk too. He was highly recommended to me. He found out what my problem was and to date have not had any problems.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
