The Dr was great! The office staff needs to GET IT TOGETHER! My first appt I waited over an hour to get to the room. The 2nd appt I waited less than that, but got called to the desk to be told they had not gotten an answer back from my insurance company on approvals. WHY did they schedule me and then NOT call me when they KNEW they had no approval yet???????? I come from another city and drove 50 minutes each time! We are on 1 income and this does not set well with me!!

Dr. Burney is a great doctor. It is the dealings with the office staff and their lack of integrity. THey called to tell me I had to pay several hundred of dollars before the doctor would do my surgery. (I had a broken leg; surgery was not an option) They told me they checked with my insurance, and I needed to pay, which I did. Come to find out, when I spoke with my insurance company, I did not need to pay. Then, getting that money back or left on my account for a credit was a mess.

I had to have emergency surgery on my hip and Dr. Burney cancelled/delayed his plans for attend to me. He and his staff are extremely nice. They know how to speak to you in normal conversation where you understand what's going on (no big medical terms that keep you guessing). After speaking with him I had every confidence in the world in him.

I do not recommend Dr. Burney or his partner Dr. Zavala. Neither of them come in to the exam room prepared or with your patient information in hand, so every time you see them it is like you are a brand new patient. They come in with nothing - no paper medical record, no computer, nothing. They are so far behind with their appointments that they are just rushing you in and out. I can't trust that they won't rush thru surgery.
