    Excellent Doctor and Neurosurgeon, he performed my surgery almost a year ago and all things considered it was a great experience and I felt like I was in great hands with him leading. He also did a great job communicating and answering questions. For such a tough moment in my life, Dr. Burns made the best of it.

    This doctor is VERY smart but also very compassionate, personable & approachable. Easy to ask questions of. Performed a craniotomy on me to remove a 3cm benign tumor. I have NO residual symptoms. Couldn't have asked for a better doctor to do the job.
