Patient Comments (2)
Montoursville, PA |
Our experience with Dr. Burns was a positive one from the moment my two year olds name was called and the nurse was at the door kneeling at her level. Dr. Burns and his team treated us with great care, truly listened, and developed a plan with us. He was expert,but did not speak over us and it was clear he had my child's best interests in mind. Dr. Burns has an office environment comfortable and welcoming to children which is important. I highly recommend him.
