Dr. Burns is an angel on earth. He saved my life and I am forever grateful to him. He's dedicated, kind and sincere. I really can't say enough good things about him. Thank you Dr. Burns for everything you have done for me and my family.

Dr. Burns exudes jackass. Every question is a dumb question. And he'll even refuse (literally!) to answer some basic ones, like what is voice therapy?. He has more important things to do. He is clearly knowledgeable. But due to a complete lack of empathy and interpersonal skills it is hard to know whether to trust what he says. The other staff are wonderful.

Have had problem speaking since an accident 3 months. Dr. Burs explained in details all options and recommended a specific procedure I agreed to have. He showed me pictures of the area injured and explained all the steps and expectations. The staff was friendly and made sure that everything went well.
