Two Stars

I was charged for things that did not even occur. I tried for 4 days to talk to Heather the office mgr. She would never return my call.A very unprofessional way to conduct a business. I would never go there again. And will tell anyone I know who needs such a doctor to not go.

Wrong Diagnosis

Dr. Burns gave me the wrong diagnosis. He completely discounted the MRI results from St. Lukes. He tried sending me to physical therapy. After a second opinion and surgery the second Dr. found my tendon to be 90% severed. They had to replace it with another tendon since the other 10% was so damaged. Physical therapy would have only caused me more pain and money. Surgery was inevitable to repair my wrist after this injury. If you have a hand injury I highly recommend Dr. Maneesh Verma. He showed me the images on the MRI where the laceration was clearly shown. After surgery he called me personally to check on me. His staff is professional and prompt in getting my medication called in to my pharmacy.

Four Stars

Dr. Burns has a gentle, relaxed manner.Both times I saw him he was wearing the same plaid shirt and faded jeans. Staff mishandled the payment/insurance. I had a dislocated ring finger and he re-set the finger. He charged for every little thing he did. Charged $80 for therapy consultation when he showed me how to bend my finger in a splint. Then I was charged for another therapy session at the follow up visit when he bent my finger down. I thought that was the kind of thing that the care of the finger involved. Probably wouldn't use him again.

Dr Burns is awsome!

Dr Burns was very personable, knew exactly what kind of tumor was in my hand, explained the process for getting this tumor removed and what to expect in very plain, simple terms. I would be very willing to have Dr Burns as my surgeon again in the future if the need arises.
