It is interesting for me to read people's individual experiences. Dr Burgess may be a man of few words, but I trust him 100%! I work in surgery on occasion with him. He does an amazingly wonderful job with each patient, no matter the complexity. He has my "thumbs up" recommendation!!

There were...more

At first I thought Dr Burgess pretty direct. But as the meeting progressed his explained my medical condition and choices to me and my husband in a very friendly and professional way.
