I had heard nothing but positive about Dr. Burroughs, but after my eye surgery, I was very frustrated. I was worried and his staff would not allow me to have an appointment because they were all "booked up." Then when I had complications, I did not receive a return phone call -- even though all calls are returned in "48 hours." So far, not good. I think he enjoys the plastic surgery more than a routine tear duct fix.

I went to see Dr. Burroughs for cosmetic treatment without surgery. I am a 63 year old post menopausal woman with the common issues of sagging skin on the face and neck, dark spots, and an unsightly abdominal scar. I was made so comfortable my Dr. Burroughs and his professional staff, that I had multiple procedures, including FX body, Forma, Fracture, and a silk peel. I also had ThemiVia, which has made a huge difference in my vaginal health! I highly recommend this office for great results!

Dr. Burroughs is extremely skilled and has an awesome bedside manner with his patients!! I had both upper and lower eyelid lifts - I can now see better long distance (which is crucial as a semi driver!!) and my eyes are not nearly as dry as before!! He and his staff will do a phenomenal job for you!!!
