Verified Patient Reviews
The doctor was Very informative. The staff was polite and attentive. There was no time for my appointment. I was impressed.
Visit was great. Staff was pleasant and professional. Once I finished filling out the paper work, I was called in within five minutes. I can’t stress how nice they were and they answered all of my questions.
Dr. Bursztyn is a highly competent young doctor specializing in orthopedics. His manner is informal, friendly, straight forward. He listens to the patient after asking the right questions. Dr. Bursztyn also has integrity, does not order costly diagnostics or radical treatments if these are not indicated, in his opinion. His office staff is efficient which may account for the refreshingly short wait time for a busy office, yet they put one at ease.
