Dr. Burns is a phenomenal surgeon. He's kind, caring and honest. His PA, Mr. Gabriel Petty is just as nice and informative. They are a dream team. If you're in need of an orthopedic surgeon, do not hesitate to visit Dr. Burns and his team. They truly are phenomenal and I can't thank them enough for giving me the lifestyle I enjoy and had been missing for nearly a decade.
