Dr. Burgess has a very professional and kind manner talking to me about my broken wrist . He was patient explaining the procedure in getting full function of my wrist. He took the time to answer all my questions including showing me diagrams of the hardware getting my wrist back to full range motion. Each visit was worth my time in getting full range motion. He accomplished in achieving it. Thank you.

Very friendly and helpful. I had complete confidence in him. I needed surgery due to an injury. I was scheduled quickly for the surgery and the operation went exactly as he explained it would. While I was recovering over the next three months I came into contact with a few other people who had the same surgery from different surgeons. I only had a small 2" incision, while these other people had huge scars from much larger incisions. Some as large as 6-8". I highly recommend Dr. Burgess.

excellent doctor! He repaired a previously incorrectly repaired finger making it as normal as possible & ending many yrs of pain & difficulty in using it -phenominal workmanship He has an excellent rapport w/patients making you feel totally at ease & that youre in the most competent hands & that youre his most important patient I totally & completely trust him to perform any surgery on myself or any family member
Totally missed correct diagnosis. Wanted to do joint replacement on fingers but did not see that the swelling was psoriatic arthritis. When I saw a rheumatologist on my own, the diagnosis was made correctly!
