Patient Comments (2)
in Albuquerque, NM |
The best doctor in the world! None come close to Dr. Burkhart. I met about 3 of his patients in the waiting area and 2 of them were MD's themselves. My shoulder had an L-shaped supraspinatus tear and I had maybe 10% use of my arm. I am back to 100%. Post-op I had almost no pain. I am convinced that most of the negative talk about shoulder surgery is exaggeration. I slept on my back in bed after surgery. No problems. Really. Dr. Burkhar's staff is the best, especially Veronica and Mary.
