Dr. McBurney saw in the hospital after I had a second stroke. He was not happy with the results of the first MRI so he ordered another MRI and found out I actually had a brain stem stroke. He explained all the details to me and was so concerned for me as a patient and not just willing to accept what didn't seem right to him. His knowledge and willingness to ask for more saved my life. I'll be forever grateful.

Dr. McBurney has been a godsend to my family and I. I've seen many specialists, including other neurologists, and he is leaps and bounds superior to them in all aspects of his profession, including empathy! He listens to you, accepts your input and provides his own. He explores options most Drs are too narrow minded to even think of. I highly recoomend you see this man if you have any medical need that even remotely requires a neurologist. I will continue to see him as long as I can!
