Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He is the best! He listens to you, Haven't seen him since I moved north, and needed an expert for an impacted bowel. He probably doesn't remember helping me, but I sure was glad I went to him!!!!!!

Dr Burg literally saved my life. I suffered for years and kept putting off my surgery. I scheduled surgery after my first visit with him. He is very professional and has many years of experience. I'm so grateful to have been referred to him.

Dr. Burg gained my confidence and respect the very first time I visited him. His bedside manner was excellent, and discussed my condition with me in detail, answering all of my questions. He properly diagnosed my condition, and although he is a surgeon, he took a conservative approach with my treatment. He made me feel comfortable, even when I eventually needed a procedure to be done. His staff is just as professional and caring as he is. I would recommend Dr Burg to anyone in my family.
