Call and confirm with the office about your health insurance coverage. The estimate given by my health insurance vastlyunderestimated what I paid. I waited 45 minutes to be seen which was not ideal. Though Dr. Burnett and his staff were very professional and pleasant.

I saw Dr. Burnett for a ruptured eardrum - he took the time to discuss it with me and recommend next steps which included seeing an in-house audiologist. He was very helpful and patient in explaining things to me, would recommend him to others!

Dr Burnett was direct, attentive, kind, and thorough. The woman at the front desk was patient and helpful while I filled out forms. The atmosphere overall was friendly and professional. I've had an incredibly challenging first week in NYC after having an eardrum rupture upon arrival. While I don't have health insurance, I have nearly nothing left financially between urgent care and moving to a new city, but this visit was absolutely worth it- he answered my questions, explained what had happened in lay-mans terms, and even helped me feel comfortable when I had a panic attack (unrelated to the visit). Dr Burnett is one of those very generous people who you don't recognize at first because they're not smiling a lot, but it's apparent that he truly cares about his patients. 11/10 would see again

Dr Burnett has a mild- and concerned bedside manner. He is very knowledgeable and capable and yet is able to acknowledge if/when an issue doesn't have a clear-cut resolution, and invites the patient to participate in the process of reaching for a solution.

I had to wait 30 minutes to be seen. Once I finally saw the doctor I wasn’t able to finish even one sentence. He kept taking over me and was obviously trying to rush me out. I don’t like wasting my time either, but not being able to even finish a sentence is not acceptable for me and it concerns me if I’m being diagnosed without all the relevant information. I don’t think I will go back to that doctor.

This was my first visit with Dr. Burnett. Check-in Receptionist was friendly and courteous and provided several forms (for a new patient) to complete. I recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early to complete all forms without feeling rushed. Upon completion of the forms, wait time to be seen was minimal. After meeting Dr. Burnett, it was determined that a hearing test would be prudent, and that was completed by their audiologist. She was pleasant and very professional. The test procedure was explained thoroughly. The remaining visit was with Dr. Burnett and I found him to be warm, friendly and very professional/competent. He explained everything in understandable terms, and answered all my questions. The appointment did not seemed rushed, and he seemed genuinely interested in my issue and concerns. Overall, I was very satisfied with my appointment and plan on continuing with Dr. Burnett and his staff for any future otolaryngology issues.
