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 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 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...Read More
