Dr. Burns' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Burns " I am on Healthgrades to offer my services to patients and family members suffering from the drastic increase in Prescription Drug Abuse, Dependency and Addictions. I also act as a consultant in the increase in "Heroin" Abuse and Addiction. I make my evaluations from information obtained from the Patient, Family Members, and Medical Records. After I make my evaluations, I discuss a "Detoxification and Aftercare Plan".
