Five Stars

Dr. Burson was recommended to me by several health professionals in Little Rock whose opinion I trust. I consulted with 3 neurosurgeons before choosing Dr. Burson. He did an excellent job and was very patient in answering all my concerns and discussing my options. I have already recommended him to friends.

DO NOT TRUST HIM

I was referred to Dr. Burson for a lumbar fusion. At my appointment he told me that I needed a double fusion and set a surgery date. Two weeks before surgery his nurse called me and said that Dr. Burson no longer thought I needed surgery. Three other doctors all think I do need surgery. Do not trust what he tells you. I had no other contact with him after the first appt when he said I needed the double fusion.

Well respected doctor by his peers

Dr. Burson has exception bedside manner, is very thorough and answers all questions. He is very respected with other doctors. His nurse Brooke is an absolute "rockstar". She is sweet, friendly and very prompt with return calls left on her voicemail. She works hard setting up consulting doctor's appointments and outside testing.
