Fantastic personality and care. Very informative, gives you time, helpful and explanatory. Organized nd has equally organized staff. Had foot surgery recently and couldn't be happier.
Chicago, IL |
I had emailed his assistant with questions regarding my recovery from my broken ankle that he did surgery on. I did not receive a response, so I sent the email directly to Dr. Burgess on Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Dr. Burgess immediately called me and apologized profusely for not receiving a response and explained that his assistant had been out of the office due to family matters. He went above and beyond and took his time with me and very kindly answered all of my questions. Thank you!

I have been dealing with an ankle problem for over 2 years. I have been to other 3 other doctors with no good results. Dr. Burgess is the first one who actually listened to my entire history and is actively trying to solve my problem.

Dr. Burgess performed heel fracture surgery on my left foot which needed a plate and 7 screws. He is very straight forward, thorough and compassionate. I never felt rushed during my appointments and his staff is friendly and helpful as well. I followed his instructions, did 5 months of physical therapy and 6 months of massage therapy. 1 year later I am very happy with my progress ~ back to doing yoga and walking/hiking. I highly recommend Dr. Burgess for anyone with foot problems

After just one appointment the pain in my foot was lessened. I was able to get an appointment within a few days of when I called for an appointment. Dr. Burgess addressed my pain. I had been to a previous doctor that ignored my pain. I would recommend Dr. Burgess to my family and friends.

Dr. Burgess repaired a fracture in both of my feet. I have no pain, and am able to run again. Dr.Burgess and his staff are very nice and accommodating, I would highly recommend him if you're having foot problems!

My wife recently went to see this guy. He spent 90% of the time with my wife on his phone texting. Can you believe it? She goes for a consultation and not only does he not pay any attention he misdiagnoses my wife's foot problem. We wanted a 2nd opinion after seeing a podiatrist. This guy is a farce. The podiatrist does an acell graft as an outpatient procedure and in two weeks time her problem was solved. Burgess said, "There is no way a podiatrist can solve this" Don't go see him
in Joliet, IL |
He was able to diagnose my needs immediately and clearly explained his reasoning for my specific treatment. He listened to my concerns and produced exemplary results. I am completely satisfied.
