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!

In office surgery. My me feel very comfortable. Great bedside manners - felt like I'd been his patient for years.

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.
