I went to Dr. Burgess from recommendation of shop doctor at the G.M. Lansing Grand River Plant. 1st mistake was to do that. I went to see Dr. Burgess for conciliation 2nd mistake. He was just short of being RUDE. I never seen him prior to the surgery but he did come in to see me for all of 30 seconds after the surgery. I went back to see him for follow up appointment after surgery and only seen his nurse he never came in to check out his work. I explained to her I had a lot of pain still and she ask if I needed more pain meds and it should get better in time. I explained to her I had my right thumb done 6 months prior and didn't have near the pain ( different doctor). Well like her boss she just took defense and got RUDE. To end this let me say one thing FINDED A DIFFERENT HAND SURGEON !!!!

Patient and RN in hospital

Dr Burgess has a great bedside manner (uncommon for most surgeons). He explains things well and vey accurately. I brought a friend with me today for a "second set of ears" and he completely welcomed her in and was happy to answer questions she asked. I have not had surgery performed by dr. Burgess yet so I can't comment on that- but when the time comes he's the one I plan to use. He is always very courteous and never makes me feel rushed. I feel like he cares about my pain and want to help me
