Dr. Burnett reminds me of some of my favorite law school professors, very bright and interesting, clearly a thinker, and also a kind person. It's almost like being treated by Dumbledore. He quickly diagnosed the problem and I was back in fighting form in no time. Thank you!!

Dr. Burnett was great! He was quick, listened to all my needs and problems, and found out exactly what was wrong with me, prescribed me medications, and recommended a surgeon who could maybe help be further with my ear issues. Great office!

Dr. Burnett is phenomenal - he really cares and takes the time to listen to all potential factors. My case wasn’t typical, and Dr. Burnett saw me a few times to eliminate potential ENT contributing factors! He called me personally onseveral occasions to discuss test results and save me a trip back to his office. He is overall amazing!

Dr Burnett is thorough and well spoken. He explains what he is doing and what is his reasoning very thoroughly and detailed to a lay man (non-medical) person such as myself. His methodology and approach is logical and makes sense. Iappreciate the promptness of the appointment as well. Nominal waiting time in the waiting area (a few minutes max).

LOTS of waiting for this office and even if you're in the office and have seen the doctor, you may be asked to step out to the waiting room again to wait some more. Doctor always seems so rushed, he washolding onto the door and almost walking out while I had more questions.

It was a very short and smooth visit, doctor basically told me I do not need to be there after taking 2 mins with me . Think he could easily waive the fee since he is my regular doctor and didnot feel the need but I understand and respect him either way, he is a good doctor

The care by the doctor was excellent, but the staff was kinda rude. They all seemed to have a lot of stress and the woman at the front desk had an attitude. As i am suffering from current hearing loss Ihad to ask twice for information and she just looked at my like I am stupid. That didn’t make me feel good. In the end the way the doctor treats you, is more important.

Dr Burnett is compassionate, professional & thorough. I saw other ENT doctors before & concluded that Dr Burnett is the best. He deserves 10 stars! I started seeing Dr Burnett when I was working in Manhattan a few years ago. AlthoughI no longer work in Manhattan, I am willing to drive over 30 miles to see him for the best care & treatments. My husband is also a patient of Dr Burnett. We both trust him & appreciate his detailed examination & diagnosis. Thank you Dr Burnett!!!

Great doctor, worst medical and admin staff I have ever seen. They are rude to start with. Whenever I leave a message, they never get back to me. I’m giving him one more chance, but if it doesn’t change, I’ll change my doctor!

My experience with Dr. Burnett was pleasant (good bedside manner, asked plenty of questions, etc.), but the office staff was extremely unprofessional. They were openly fighting in front of the patients both in the waiting room and in the back.I also had to wait for over an hour to see the doctor. All-in-all, the vibe of the office and the long wait time is not worth me going back, despite my good experience with the doctor himself.
