Dr. Ronald S Burns has the following 2 specialties
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I am unable to rate ZERO STARS. Search for a different pain doctor. This place is absolutely HORRIBLE. There is no care for your well-being or maintaining your pain level. I receive more attention in an Emergency Room than I do here. I have been disabled for over 20 years. Dr. Ronald Burns first initial visit with me made me feel wonderful that he cares is a LIE. He also says he can relate because he is also on pain meds. He is a liar. He tells you, you can schedule an appointment with him whenever you wish to see him. I tried to schedule an appointment with him for 6 months. Really, 6 months and no openings. I find that hard to believe. The staff will stab you in the back ANY chance they get to protect themselves. While you sit in the waiting room, the front desk help will talk about patients they donât like after they leave the office. Watch out, you could be one of them they talk about. I have heard MANY conversations between the staff at the front desk how they donât like this person. They donât even try to whisper when discussing patients. Flat out UNACCEPTABLE. Very selfish self-centered people that work there. PA's come and go like you change your clothes. There is no treatment plan to improve your quality of life. It is all about the useless PA's rushing you through. I warn you now. I left there as soon as I found a pain doctor that is willing to listen and help.
After Dr. Burns couldnt help me, he lied and said I came up dirty on a urination report and stopped his services. I knew this was wrong and asked for the files. He gave me everything but the urine report. I got that report from the lab and it was negative. I tried calling them thinking it was just a mistake, but he wouldnt talk to me. After calling about 10 times and being put on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes each time, I gave up. His staff is very rude and never call you back. If you have an appnt and he is sick that day, they dont even call you to tell you that. They make you take off work and go there before you find out. His whole operation should be looked into by the DEA because his waiting room looks like a methadone clinic. If you need drugs, go see him, but if you want real help with your pain, Avoid him at all costs. Just my experience with him. I seen him for a year at once a month and came out of his office worse than when I went in.
