Great MD Poor Nurses

Good Doctor femail nurses are rude and short. Wait times can be well over 2 hours. Not easy to schedule an appointment. They usually take your number and might take 2+ hours before the nurse returns call to make the appointment. If seeing this MD, free up an entire day.

Wonderful Doctor!

I have been going to Dr. Burns for years, he has gone out of his way to make sure I am well taken care of. He has a extremely high patient load, as he is a caring and truly outstanding physician. His practice is closed, but I can tell you, he is a gem!

Extremely rude

Apparently Dr. Burns has never suffered the excruciating pain of a bladder infection. He seemed extremely annoyed to take a call at 5am for a call for meds. Never mind I have been up all night already trying to tough it out. "In 33 years I've never had anyone call me on call with a bladder infection at 5am.". I was shocked by his rudeness then angered when the Walgreens pharmacist told me he gave her an earful too.! Creep.
