He was the one who performed my Dad's leg amputaion surgery, and he's been great with helping us in any way he can. Very kind and caring. And most importantly of all, he did his job wonderfully and the surgery has been free from compication and a huge success so far.

I came to this site earlier and there was only 1 rating. I entered my history as a patient of Dr.Burns and after comletion my page went blank. I returnd to this site and it indicated that 2 ratings had been entered but only 1 showed. The 2nd rating was missing. I assume it was the one I was trying to enter.I had gone to see Dr. Burns with an infected foot after being treated by an orthopedic doctor in a nearby town for over 5 months who had just told me he could nothing else for me except amputat the entire foot.Dr. Burns examined me, immediately ran tests,then reviewed the situation with me and my wife. He recommended that the best thing to do was remove just a toe.I agreed and this procedure was done. Dr. Burns set up the care and after only about 2 monts, the foot was totally healed. I am walking on the foot now.I would highly recommed Dr. Burns. He is a very caring professional who was concernd with my well being. I have used the services of many doctors in my'many' years and Dr. Burns stands out as one of the best!
