Dr. Burns is an enormously proficient neurologist. In addition to being an expert in his specialty, he is patient-centered; he is fully present and listens to his patients, affording them dignity and allowing them to participate in their care and decision-making. And he appears to be a great mentor. He and his Fellow/Residents have done a remarkable job of managing my myasthenia gravis.

Dr. Burns is a very thorough Doctor. He makes sure you understand what he is telling you answers whatever questions you have in language you can understand. Makes you feel at ease with whatever the diagnosis is. Like him very much and would recommend him very highly.

Dr. Burns is one of the most caring and knowledgeable doctors I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of doctors! I suffered from neuropathy from complications with ovarian cancer. He was not my regular doctor, but he was recommended to me and saw me the same day, fitting me into his busy clinic schedule. I cannot say enough about how thorough he was and what a gifted listener. He was able to give me excellent guidance so that I could make an informed decision about my treatment.

Dr. Burns offered excellent care and treatment when I saw him for reoccurring nerve pain. He was thorough in his analysis, and his diagnosis and subsequent referral, led to a speedy recovery and a return to pain-free daily tasks. I have recommended him to others, and consider him a valuable resource for treatment in Virginia.

I have a very difficult disease to treat called Myasthenia Gravis. Dr. Burns has increased my quality of life by carefully identifying the many treatments available and successfully treating my particular case. His knowledge of this mysterious disease is incredible. I am very grateful to be one of his patients, even though the plane flight is over two hours in order to see him!
in Appomattox, VA |
Dr. Ted Burns is an amazing doctor. He actually is my second opinion, in a way. He consulted with my other neurologist (who doesn't work at UVA or even a facility related to UVA) for many hours and many times before I even became a patient of his. He takes the time to listen and do much research even after hours. He has a wonderful bedside manner and treats you like a person and not a number. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a neuro doctor.
