Dr. Burke saved my leg and most likely my life. I had emergency surgery to remove a large blood clot in my leg/stent...resulting from another major surgery (by another dr) 2weeks prior. The pain and leg pressur was at critical stage and Dr. Burke immediately addressed the issue. Thank God for Dr. Burke. His staff, Chris, got me in to be tested and seen so very quickly. I cannot say enough about her and Nancy.

This "doctor" should not be practicing. He insisted that my mother- in-law was not in danger, that she will not get another blood clot in her leg, and just wear "the sock", and deal with the swelling. She was in the ICU, less than 24hrs. later with life-threatening blood clots.
