Specialties

Dr. Charles R Burns has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

My most trusted Cardiologist

Dr. Charles Burns has been my Cardiologist of choice for many years. I feel that his expertise and willingness to save lives is why I am here to write this review. I visited his new office today and was very impressed with all aspects. There was minimum wait time, Dr. Burns was very thorough, made notes to update my GP, and overall made me feel most comfortable. And, the new office area is very nice and I am very pleased.

My experiences with Dr. Burns for many years

I have been seeing Dr. Burns for many years. I recently visited his new nicely renovated office and things went smooth as silk. Prompt timing and treatment without a problem. Dr. Burns is the most energetic and I think knowledgeable Cardiologist in the area as I have had heart disease for 44 years. He has bailed me out more than once and would like to suggest anyone needing a Cardiologist to give him a try. I consider him more than a Dr. I consider him a friend.
