Five Stars

Fortunately I met Dr. Burns because unfortunately I needed shoulder surgery and a few months later knee surgery. He is very thorough, explains in detail your procedure. He follows up with you everyday! My two procedures were great! Quick recovery with physical therapy. I highly recommend Dr. Burns!
