On my first visit to see Dr Buz...waiting room time was a few minutes...his practice runs like a fine machine!! His staff is very caring and pleasant. Once in the exam room...his asst "Tammy" took all the my chief complaints and soon after Dr. Buz was in the room, he went over his plan for recovery and did a few test...sent me for a CT scam and EMS. I passed the test and was a perfect candidate for surgery and his prognosis was ??% recovery!! Will have surgery 1/30. looking forward to it...!!

My injury was not explained to me fully after surgery, nor did my doctor inform me and therefore I now have serious complications that will effect me in getting back to work.

Dr. Burkhead is a master when it comes to fixing shoulders. He inspires confidence from the start and his results are amazing. For me, recovery and mobility was almost immediate. As my trusted internist, Dr. Jeb Miers, said when recommending Dr. Burkhead to me: If it's a shoulder problem, you can't do better than Buz Burkhead!
