Dr Burg was very thorough with me during our visit and took time to explain everything about my injury and my options he even spoke so that I could understand which is rare with alto of doctors. Thanks Dr Burg
in Allen, TX |
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.
in Plano, TX |
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.
