Patient Reviews (9)
Windsor, CT |
Incredibly rude physician and staff. Really shockingly condescending. He may be skilled, but this type of behavior is never acceptable. I'd rather find another skilled physician (there are others of course) with a modicum of people skills.
in Hartford, CT |
Straight forward in his assessments and knowledgeable about his specialty. He gives honest answers and listens to your concerns and always answers every question. He saw me every day in the hospital as well. I couldn't be more pleased with my care
in Ellington, Ct |
Caring, considerate, conscientious. Did a fabulous job on both of my knee replacements
in New Britain, CT |
Very arrogant and condescending. He really needs to take time to answer questions and concerns & not rush through one to get to another- he needs to work on his personality! Staff not pleasant as well but I'm sure they get it from him.
Dr Burns did an amazing job putting me back together after a traumatic leg fracture!
New York, NY |
dr. Burns was excellent. He spent lots of time listening and answering question. I would highly recommend him.
Middletown |
My experience with Dr. Burns seemed to go down hill, compares to 3 years ago. A big rush and the worst part was that the gel shots that I got for my knees were very painful. According to him there was no Novocain and a friend of mine that went to a dr. In Middletown did have Novocain in his. Why, is it cheaper? I will never go back again.
Wethersfield, CT |
Dr. Burns spends time with you and never rushes you through an appointment. Another doctor said I needed knee replacement surgery but Dr. Burns offered me an alternative treatment that has worked well for the last 2 years. I am in much less pain since I started going to him. He is also on time for your appointment, which is unusual for a surgeon. I have never had an issues with his office staff.
Very arrogant and condescending. Maybe knee replacement surgery is now common place for him but not for the patient and he really needs to take time to answer questions and concerns. Staff not pleasant but probably take their cues from him.
