Patient Comments (4)
in Frisco, TX |
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Burns and his staff. I am so skeptical about doctors and their abilities, intentions, greed and patient indifference that I hobbled around for three weeks with a broken knee before even considering having it checked out. Through sheer luck I came upon Dr. Burns. What followed was immediate surgery and painful rehabilitation. Dr. Burns and his staff were consistently professional, efficient, kind, and caring during the entire process.

in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Burns and his entire staff did an excellent job of taking care of me. He did a scope on my left knee a few years ago and recently repaired my right shoulder including procedures on my rotator cuff and bicep tendon. I would recommend Dr. Burns to anyone needing help with their shoulders or knees.
