Dr. Burkhead is delightful. He explained in great detail what is going on with my shoulder. He exercised great judgment in deciding on how to help alleviate the pain I was experiencing. The staff and facility is top notch. I am thankful for his expertise.

I am so thankful to Dr. Burkhead and his wonderful PA Helena. I had my shoulder replaced on dec 15, 2017 and I feel amazing. The constant pain I was living with is gone! Only suggestions is better aftercare information. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 minutes. I’m very pleased!

THIS IS MY GIFT TO THE WORLD - DON'T USE "DR WAYNE BURKHEAD JR, MD" FOR SURGERY OR ANY MEDICAL NEED. The worst Doctor and staff in the world. You will spend the "rest of your life" paying for the mistake of using him. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
