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.

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.
