I did not actually see Dr Burns. I was referred to him by another Dr for a very serious complication I was experiencing that needed urgent attention, I was told that his office responded quickly to referrals, however, it took his office more than three weeks to respond, after which time I had already seen another Dr, had surgery for the complication spent a week in the hospital and well on the way to recovery. Not impressed.

Great guy. Down to earth. Explains everything well. Did an excellent job with the surgery and follow ups. I just wish he was attached to Baptist instead of CHI

I have never met a more kind and caring doctor before. He really loves his job and taking care of people. He has gone above and beyond what many doctors would have done to help me. If you need a fantastic golf-rectal surgeon go see Dr Burns. If you want just a so so doctor go see someone else!

We are very fortunate to have Dr. burns here in Arkansas. If you need colorectal surgery rest assured he is the best, I recently had transanal excision for what started out as stage 3c rectal cancer before chemoradiation and responded down to a locally excisable adenoma, i was back to riding my bicycle two days after surgery. He is very skilled in all the latest minimally invasive techniques which will save you a lot of pain and disfigurement.

Dr. Burns was warm, enthusiastic and diagnosied my problem that I had for decades within minutes. I wish I would have seen him before my coccyxgectomy. I found long awaited answers today. I’m very grateful for this wonderful doctor!

Dr. Burns is an amazing doctor and saved my life. I ended up having 3 surgeries all done my Dr. Burns to remove all of my large intestines and rectum and make a jpouch. Dr Burns was great. He hasaid a great bed side manner and also tells you how it is. It has been a year and he still does all of my follow up scopes. Most doctors after a surgery they are done and leave you hanging. Dr burns assured me he will remain my dr. I am so thankfull I chose him. My kids will use him in the future as well.

I've had an excellent experience with Dr. Burns! I've had two surgeries- a hemorrhoidectomy and a pilonidal cyst excision. He makes the patient feel comfortable and at ease. He has a great personality, and genuinely cares about his patients. I would definitely recommend him, and I would go back to him in a heart beat.

Dr. Burns safe my life. I had the flesh eating disease and he was able to do surgery on me very quickly so as it did not spread. He also has the best bed side manner. When i was in the hospital he would spend extra time in the room with My Family and i answering questions. Dr. Burns is the best.

Dr. Burns is an excellent colon doctor/surgeon. I haven't had surgery but have seen him twice for consultation visits & one op procedure. I'm a candidate for colon surgery but his professional advice was not to go the surgery route just yet. In my opinion that tells a lot about a honest highly qualified specialist that is not all about seeing you and recommending surgery immediately but to try other options that may be beneficial. Thank you Dr. Burns!

Dr Burns is a competent surgeon, however his affiliation with the deathtrap hospital CHI St Vincent casts serious doubt as to a good outcome. Post surgery care was a nightmare due to inadequate nursing staff. Additionally his billing department mistakes created ongoing headaches and issues due to their incompetence and unwillingness to acknowledge mistakes they made.

I just had surgery on 4-13-2016. Dr.Burns did a great job I was a little scared but he told me that everything was going to be okay and he told the truth. I had an outpatient surgery and is at home recovering. I'm not in any pain except when I have a bowel movement but with my sitz bath, I'll be just fine. If I had to do it again I would definitely trust Dr.Burns. My two daughters met him for the first time doing my surgery and they thought he was a very nice looking man.
