I would highly recommend Dr. Burns. I take my father-in-law to him regularly and every time, he is very polite and professional. My father-in-law sees alot of Doctors and Dr. Burns is his absolute favorite. He always talks about how much the Doctor helped him heal and how he always takes his time instead of rushing to get out. Keep up the good work!!! You are making a difference.
