Dr. Burns has now completed 5 different procedures on me and my wife. Four meniscus tears and on bicep detachment. Do you think we would continue to return if he wasn't just the best?!?! He is a true professional, with personality, charm and a sense of humor. His office staff is second to none. We could not be more satisfied with the results and will forever refer our friends and shower him with praise. Thank you Dr. Burns, if you are reading this!!

Professional, knowledgable and great. I felt very confident in the care that I recieved. He and his team were easy to work with and his use of technology (Healthloop) allowed me to ask and get answers to any questions I has at any time.

Excellent pre and post surgery communication. Contacting Dr. Burns' team with questions or concerns is as easy as a phone call. Post surgery contact/follow-up is excellent, I receive DAILY emails from his team inquiring about my condition and I answer a series of questions designed to alert the team if there is a post-surgery problem. Dr. Burns' team responds VERY quickly. I had my shoulder replacement surgery at Henry Mayo Memorial Hospital and I am VERY satisfied with my experience there.
