Patient Comments (3)
Elgin, IL |
Dr. Burks is a caring physician with a great manner with his patients. He performed a couple of different surgical procedures for my husband, and we were very pleased with the results. My husband's recovery was uneventful and fairly quick, taking his age into consideration. The medical staff was very helpful, polite, and friendly at St. Joseph's Hospital, Elgin. His office staff is excellent, as well.

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.
