I have seen Dr Burke many times for my reoccurring knee issues. I love how he listens to my concerns and the great care I receive from both him and his amazing staff. He never spouts out random answers or talks over you, which is rare to find in doctors nowadays. I'm also excited on the new lease on my knees thanks to MACI as he is one of the very few who do this surgery. Thanks to him I am looking forward to a life free from knee pain!

From start to finish with Dr. Robert Burke and all of his staff I have nothing but good to say. My first visit through the day of my surgery and all follow ups it was very professional but also very personal on every visit. The sincerity of their work is just great and I worked with very good local therapists and Dr. Burke's work was great. Thanks again I can get back to my active life with no pain or problems. Highly recommend him and his staff. They were all very polite and helpful.
