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.
