I've read the negative reviews and they make no sense. Dr Burgess is absolutely non-confrontational, and while he may speak quickly he will answer every question a patient has. I thoroughly ask him for clarification, explaining details, medical terms, treatment options, pros, cons, guidance, etc. I have never felt pressured to stop asking questions and have been very surprised at his level of patient engagement and patient education on the topics at hand (no pun intended). My recovery times compared to other top hand surgeons are typically half the recovery time or better and the scars are nearly invisible. He is very thorough during surgery to prevent relapses or reoccurring pain or dysfunction. He is the best in the business, very easy to talk to, and fully committed to patient satisfaction.

I saw Dr. Burgess at his new location, OrthoArizona, for my wrist pain/surgery. He was prompt, knowledgeable, and easy on the eyes :) He listened well and addressed all of my concerns. I feel confident in his skills, I wouldn't let anyone else perform my surgery. I would recommend Dr. Burgess to everyone I know.
