I can't say enough about the fantastic and thorough care I received from Dr. Burger. He prioritized my issue, gave me his full attention, and his expertise brought me through a life or death medical crisis. I am eternally grateful for his understanding and compassion, but most of all for his surgical skill which enabled me to sail through a very serious operation. He's a Rock Star!!
