He is the best eye doctor I have had. Very professional; engages you in a meaningful discussion about eye problems and remedies. He just did cataract surgery on my right eye and I now have great vision. I was very pleased with him and the staff that supported him.

Dr. Burks office and staff provide excellent follow up on all procedures performed. They always define the procedures that they are performing in a manner that is understood. Dr. Burks assistant Marsha is a gem! We have referred many of our friends to Dr. Burks who are seeking services of an Ophthalmologist.

Dr. Burks is a well informed eye doctor for your cataract/ stigma circumstances. He has a comforting manner in his office and during operations. He has a personable manner and can explain what is happening, what will happen and how it will benefit you directly. & check on your status after your surgery, also.

I have no central vision in my left eye. Prior to surgery with Dr. Burks, my right eye could only be corrected to 20/40. After my cataract surgery, my right eye was corrected to 20/15 without glasses! I've been seeing Dr. Burks every year since my surgery, and I would highly recommend him.

I came to this practice with so much pain and fear. The staff greeted me with compassion and efficiently whisked me on my way to recovery. It's been two weeks and I am pain-free and nearly healed. Dr. Burks knew exactly what was wrong and exactly what to do. He was direct as to the severity of my condition but also very reassuring and went out of his way to ensure all bases were covered for treatment, pain management and after-hours contact (if needed.) I highly recommend Dr. Burks!

Referred by a friend, I felt my life was over from cataracts causing one eye to be totally clouded over and the other almost the same. Dr. Randy Burks is my savior and hero after doing one eye, and recently the other. I can now see distance perfectly and only require $10. readers for close up. So thankful.

I am very pleased with the excellent results of my recent cataract surgeries. The procedures were handled with care and efficiency. At no time, during or after the surgeries, did I experience any discomfort , and my vision was great almost immediately. Dr. Burks certainly lives up to his fine reputation. Beware, however, if your insurance is not accepted by Dr. Burks office! It is extremely difficult to get the documentation needed to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
