in Corona, CA |
I would like to thank Dr Burton & his staff for all they did for me as a patient a year ago. I had a total right knee replacement - everything was explained to me & my husband by Dr Burton's assistant, my surgery date was set, & all went as planned. Office staff was organized & thorough. Morning of my surgery, the admittance nurse was pleasant & quickly had me checked in for my 8:30 surgery. When I awoke from surgery, Dr. Burton & nurses were there to welcome me back into this world. Thanks.

He shows compasion and he's always smiling. My angel.

Always kind, considerate, attentive. Only problems are constraints due to a broken workmans comp system...
in Mentone, CA |
Had hip replacement. Very professional and caring. Told me everything on what to expect. I was walking around within a week with little or no pain meds.
