Dr Burleson was very friendly and professional. He put me to ease by showing me a video how the surgery would be done and explained every step. The surgery went well, no problems what so ever. I was in the hospital three days and doing great. I returned for a follow up visit in three weeks. Doing great and discharged. I am from Kentucky and went to Texas for the surgery as Dr Burleson was highly recommended. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing colon surgery.

Don't expect the doctor to help if things go wrong !

The key to good care is not when everything goes right, its when things go wrong. My wife experienced heaven bleeding a week after surgery. She was hospitalized and had to be given 2 pints of blood during a transfusion. Dr Burleson cared less, never visited during her 3 day stay. The attending was frustrated one with the lack of guidance from the surgeon. His assistant visited after 2 days and you could tell it was just an inconvenience. Things go wrong, but the key to great service is how they are handled. In this case very poorly.

Very humble and approachable considering his credentials. Explains things on a level that comforts a patient without talking down to them. I credit him for saving my life from Stage 3C.

Disturbed individual with extreme anger issues.

While in surgery room for colonoscopy and under sedation he berated me and lambasted me for not bringing an ostomy pouch which his office had told me I didn't need. I've never been literally yelled at before, let alone by a physician. I ended up in hospital all aftermoon trying to get my blood pressure down from 212 before I could go home. Had seen him only two times before and each time he was rude and in a hurry. I'm 82 years old and still in my right mind. He obviously has anger issues. I'll never go back to him, despite the glowing reviews above.
