Dr. Burg helped me to get moving. He is a smart, caring physician. He spent time explaining and teaching me. I highly recommend him.

500 is not enough characters to express my appreciation for Dr. Burg! Unfortunately I am moving before we could reach a resolution with my condition, but I have been SO impressed with the care I've received. He listens intently, explains things clearly, is compassionate and respectful, and he knows his stuff! He knew what my problem was after our first conversation/evaluation (though it took an MRI to prove it), and on two occasions he disagreed (and was right) with reports from other providers.

He was very attentive and took his time before offering a diagnosis. Has a wonderful personality to top it off and answered the many many questions I had thoroughly!!

Dr. Burg treated my back pain with great knowledge and care. His conclusions on what form my treatment should be gave me the most pain relief I have had in twenty years. My appointment was very informative and made me feel as though he would investigate any and all options to relieve my malady. I will continue to see him if these problems come back in the future.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Burg. He was willing to see me as a patient on his personal time and within hours of being evaluated and treated by Dr. Burg my back/rib injury was relieved. It is not just his efforts and abilities that I commend him for, but the fact that he is a caring, compassionate, listener who spends quality time discussing, assessing, diagnosing and treating you as a whole. I'm proud to say that I am a patient of Dr. Burg's!

He is excellent and I am so glad I found him. He cares about patients, and really takes the time to delve into the complexity of their disease to get the root of the problem as well as all discuss all the possible solutions. Before him, I was dismissed by no less than 3 other DRs who just didn't want to take the time to figure it out. I left a previous DR crying and feeling like I should just give up. He changed all that and is helping me. Love him!

Dr. Burg was fantastic when it came to treating my condition. I am 24 years old and never knew that I had a curved spine. I had severe hip and lower back pain for months and after my first appointment in November, everything that Dr. Burg did to treat my condition helped tremendously. He is great at what he does, and such a nice person. I recommended him to everyone I know.
