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.

Not really solving anything. I went to a clinic before and hoping this new visit may have som progress in treating my symptoms, but the doctor give no clear solution. Just some painkiller and inflammation reducing drug. I don’t think waiting and see can cure anything.

I would have gladly given Dr. Burnett a 5-Star review, if not the office’s billing practices: I was asked to pay a suspiciously high deductible, then sent a bill for another suspiciously high charge. Contacted my insurance and learned therewas a mistake in the claim and in fact my entire out-of-pocket should have been much lower than the deductible I was charged. Also realized they over charged my wife months before and never issued a refund. Had I not called and demanded a refund for both of us they would have probably kept the money. Super shady.

My sticker shock of a nasal procedure (and my insurance deductible--thanks Blue Cross ), initially, shaded my review. However, after some back and forth, Celeste in billing was super understanding and a testament to the compassion and expertise that Dr. Burnett did show during my appointment.
