THE BEST SURGEON WITH COMPASSION AND KNOWLEDGE ONE COULD ASK FOR!!

DR. BURKE HAS PERFORMED 3 SPINAL SURGERIES ON ME AND THEY WERE ALL NEEDED AS LAST RESORT..2 CERVICAL & 1 LUMBAR WITH 2 OF THEM BEING FUSIONS. IF HE STATES IT'S TIME FOR SURGERY THEN THERE IS NO OTHER RESORT FOR RELIEF. HE IS NOT MONEY DRIVEN AND I FEEL HIS DOCTOR ETHICS AND MANNERS AND OF COURSE HIS SKILL COULD NOT BE MATCHED BY NONE OTHER VERY EASILY!!
