Had back surgery for a brace to straighten out my spine. Dr. Burg was extremely professional and competent. In the hospital for two days, in bed at home for one day and up and walking the following day without any pain or discomfort. Did not need any pain pills and have had no problems for the last year. Would highly recommend for a consultation.

Dr Burg and his PA Clay are amazing!!! I have been dealing with neck pain since 2014. I've tried all the non surgical options throughout the years to no avail. Dr Burg performed an ACDF at 5-T1, 3 levels. I'm 1 month out with NO PAIN. I can't tell you what a difference it has made in my life. Dr Burg is knowledgeable and was patient with all my questions. I'm SO grateful for these professionals, couldn't recommend more highly.

Dr Burg gave me my life back! He removed 2 herniated discs in my lower back and by doing so I can now walk tall with ZERO pain! He is a no nonsense person and doesn’t sugar coat anything. I appreciated his straightforward nature as I was better prepared for the recovery process.

Dr Burg was very thorough & took his time explaining my husband’s condition & choices so we could fully decide on our options. Even to the point of hooking us up w/a primary doctor for our pre op orders since we’re relatively new to town. He seems to be a very caring individual & we’re quite pleased.

I was highly displeased with Dr. Burgs office and Ortho Texas for their disregard for patient care. I was scheduled for surgery a few weeks ago. The doctor did not show up to my pre-op appointment and the CNA/Nurse rushed my appt and told me everything about my surgery was on a piece of paper. I cancelled my surgery as the conflicting information and lack of care is at the utmost importance when going under the knife. Extremely disappointed. Invest in inter-professional communication training.

Dr. Burg was arrogant, belligerent, and all-around awful to my 84yo mother suffering with chronic pain, reducing her to tears and not caring about that, either. If surgeons are renowned for their lack of bedside manner, this guy is their poster-child. Oh – and we waited 90 minutes for the privilege!

Likelihood: ZERO. Made appt. with Dr. Burg, downloaded all new patient docs & completed before going in. Rec'd text confirmation of appt. & replied "yes". Arrived 30 minutes early for 11 am appt. Staff said appt. had been cancelled. I showed them the text & they supposedly "fixed it". In reality, I got bumped. Sat the waiting room until 11:35, with no call back. Finally had to leave & go back to work. I know doctors are "important people", but my time is also valuable.

Dr. Burg is a fantastic surgeon. After exhausting all non-surgical options to relieve my neck and arm pain, he performed a 2-level cervical fusion for me. I am now pain-free and my quality of life has improved 100%. He is very direct and answered every single one of my questions thoroughly throughout the entire process. He treated me like a person, not just a patient.

Can't speak highly enough about Dr. Burg. I had 3 years of sciatic nerve pain. 5 days after surgery with Dr. Burg, I was completely pain free. I couldn't be happier.

I visited Dr. Burg today on Thursday, November 17, 2016. His demeanor when I first met him was annoyed and extremely arrogant. He explained everything well, but offered no practical solutions and would not give me advice on how to proceed because he "cannot interfere with the proceedings of his clients"???? He decided I should have surgery in a few months, but would not prescribe any medications to help. Like prescribing medications to help was below his pay grade. Very rude. Do not support him.
