I have been a patient since 2015 when I had hip replacement. Dr. Burke is a excellent physician, explains things very well, easy to talk to, listens and answers questions. Also, the physician's assistant if very good, as well as all his office staff. I have highly recommend him to others.

First time to see Dr. Burke this week and was TOTALLY satisfied!!! I have an issue going to a doctors office and they make you feel like they are doing you a favor by them being there. That is not the case with Dr. Burke's office. From the time you walk in to the time you leave they make sure your questions are answered and they appreciate your business. Dr. Burke is very knowledgeable in orthopedics and has set plans for issues. I had been to 2 doctors before him with no relief. Within 2 d

Excellent physician, crazy busy office. When I first went to see Dr Burke about my shoulder, I waited (like many others) for almost an hour. Yes - he is busy. and YES - he is worth it. Very pleasant, confident physician and highly trained and accomplished.

Dr Burke is an amazing surgeon, as is Texas Orthopedic Hospital where he operates. Unfortunately Im now out of knees for him to replace. Two knee replacements over a 7 month spread, and he has been stellar.

It has been years since I went to Dr. Burke for a second opinion on Total Hip Replacement. I brought my actual MRI films plus the report. Waiting in the exam room, I heard him walk up and shuffle paperwork for about 5 seconds. He came in and told me I needed Total Hip Replacement without even looking at the films, only the report. Needless to say, I did not want him to operate on me if he couldn't even take the time to look at the films.

I am a patient of Dr. Burke. I had a TKR on my left knee. I will have my right knee done in a couple of weeks. He and his staff is always kind and professional. When I came out of surgery he was there to tell me how well the surgery went.

First let me say I love Dr. Burke. He has done my knee surgery and 1st rotator cuff repair surgery. Both were a great success. Unfortunately I tore my right rotator cuff. I'm having surgery this week. But I know I'm in great gifted hands with Dr. Burke and his team. If you need an orthopedic surgeon he is the surgeon you want. Very nice and he explains everything. Very professional. Thank you zDrr. Burke in advance for another successful surgery!!!

Had my left knee replaced May 2016. I will have the right on done May 2017. I went to appointments with a prepared list of questions or concerns. Every question or concern was addressed. (Be prepared and time concious). The CPM machine after surgery kept my knee flexable. I was able to keep pain to a minimum by using it almost nonstop the first week. Physical therapy before surgery was key in my recovery and mobility.

Dr. Burke, his PA's and all his office staff are very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. I had an MRI and met with Dr. Burke on Tuesday. Meniscectomy was Friday morning, I was walking Saturday with no pain. Postop day 3 started riding stationary bike with low resistance. The staff of nurses and the anesthesiologist at Texas Orthopedic Hospital were also great. I will definitely rely on Dr. Burke and all his staff for any orthopedic service. I'm very pleased with outcome of the surgery.
