Dr. Burns is a caring and competent orthopedist whom I highly recommend. My only complaint is that at the Christus Santa Rosa-Westover Hills location the hospital charged (and insurance approved) a separate, seemingly exorbitant facility-use fee for in-office x-rays and an intraarticular injection. Be aware that even though you never leave the clinic, you will likely receive two bills for any in-office procedures: one from the clinic itself for the various medical services provided, another from the hospital for out-patient use of the hospital facilities occupied by the Ortho San Antonio clinic. My out-of-pocket costs were inflated five-fold as a result.

I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Burns as my orthopedist. After the initial visit, I knew I was in good hands. His friendliness and confidence immediately put me at ease. He listened carefully, explained thoroughly, and gave me all of the information I needed to make a confident decision to have surgery. Even though the success rate for repair of a gluteus medius tear is only between 50-70%, Dr. Burns was able to successfully complete my surgery. That was impressive, but also impressive was his phone call the day after the surgery to check on me and his quick reply to my email inquiries. How many busy surgeons do that? I appreciate that follow-up visits have not been rushed and that he continues to be reassuring and determined that I reach my goals. He truly cares about his patients. Dr. Burns was recommended to me by another orthopedist who told me that if he ever needed orthopedic surgery, he would have Dr. Burns do it. I now know why, and I would also highly recommend him

Very pleased with Dr. Burns. He performed a reverse shoulder arthroplasty on my right shoulder in April of this year. I chose him as my preferred surgeon based on reviews, my Primary Care physician's recommendation, and that he was captain of the West Point tennis team. That point was one which made me think that he would know a lot about shoulders, mine was a disaster area from years of racquetball. Dr. Burns has a pleasant demeanor, explained all details of the surgery and left the final decision to me.

I am a nurse that works with many ortho surgeons in the OR and over the years of knowing him, I came to respect Dr. Burns for his operative technique, professionalism, attention to detail, bedside manner and how thorough he is. Several years after working with him, I had an accident and needed surgery on my knee. Out of all the surgeons I have worked with, he was the first one I thought to call upon.

Dr. Burns treated me like a person with a problem that could be solved but did not force me into a surgery. He provided me with the pros and cons of surgical correction and allowed me time to decided what would be the best course of action for my lifestyle.

I had been in pain for 3 months. Saw him on a Monday and had my rotator cuff surgery Friday that very same week. He went out of his way to work me into his schedule. I was very pleased with the outcome.

Dr Burns and his residents recently performed a reverse shoulder replacement on me. It is difficult to describe how wonderfully pleased I am with the outcome. They did a fabulous job. I have had minimal pain and a rapid recovery. Am ahead of schedule with range of motion and strength. Most importantly they take time to listen, they address any questions and concerns and have been so very pleasant and personable. I can't imagine there is a better team in San Antonio.

I cannot praise Dr. Burns enough!! March 14 of this year I fell and fractured the femur on my left leg, and when I arrived at The Shanno:n West Texas Memorial Hospital, there was no Orthopedic Surgeon in or on call, due to spring break. We were terrified that we didn't know the doctor that we were getting. When Dr. Burns came on the scene, he was like an angel from heaven. My leg is healing very well, thanks to Dr. Burns. If I had to have any more broken bones, I would want him to fix it.

Honesty! Professionalism! Knowledge! This man has made my life so much better after performing Total Reverse Shoulder surgery. I can move my arm, lift things, sleep without pain. My pain after the surgery, which I really feared, was practically nil. The nerve block worked great, the suggestion for a pain ball was good and really helped keep the pain at bay. Thanks Dr Burns & assistants.

Unfortunately I have had multiple orthopaedic surgeries over the years. This last surgery, a shoulder replacement, went much better then any surgery I've had in the past. My shoulder, at 90 days, feels & acts like my original and is virtually pain free. I highly recommend Dr Burns to anyone needing orthopaedic surgery.

In my opinion, Dr. Burns is the best shoulder surgeon. He performed a total shoulder replacement on me, and 6 months later I had full mobility, strength, and best of all - no pain! I waited several months for him to return from a deployment so that he could perform my surgery. I was told that this was the "the shoulder guy" at SAMMC, and man were they right. I have complete trust in his ability, and highly recommend him.
