Very thorough, asked a good amount of questions seemed interested in finding a solution. I was in a good amount of pain so I was a little short with him but handled it well. The appointment ended satisfactorly.
He diagnosed my complaint immediately, told me what caused it, gave me an injection to stop the pain (which it did!), told how to avoid it in the future. Quick, thorough, competent, pleasant. What else could you ask for?
very thorough, professional, pleasant, gave me options of what I can do about the problem. didn't feel like he was trying to sell me something I possibly didn't need .
He was great! Explained everything in simple terms and drew a pictorial of the problem on a paper and showed me the X Rays. He recommended some simple approaches before we do anything more invasive.
Dr. Burns was very professional and cordial. He helped me feel at ease about my feet and did not try to talk me into any unnecessary treatments or surgeries. I left there actually liking my feet a little bit better. That's really saying something!

The doctor was fine and I learned a lot from him. The only problem was that I booked a 10:30 AM appointment through Zoc Doc and the doctor's office called my twice to inform me my appointment was at 10:00 AM. The 10:00 AM time proved to be correct. Left hand/right hand.
Dr. Burns was on time and was thorough in his eval of my issue. He also took the time to answer all my questions.
I had a very good experience! Nice front desk/nurse assistant. Very efficient and knowledgeable doctor. Highly recommend.

Great visit- Doc is friendly, knowledgeable and caring
I love Dr. Burns - he has a nice sense of humor and he has taken care of two different ingrown toenails wonderfully. I really appreciate him AND his staff.
Professional, knowledgeable. Appropriately conservative about surgery etc
Immediately diagnosed my issue (seed callus) and took care of it. What more can one ask?! Have seen Dr Burns for several different issues over the last few years and have always been very pleased with all aspects of his service.
The long wait time was my fault. Dr. Burns is not able to help me with my current problem but did refer me to others who can. He wants to be kept in the loop so that he can be sure I am getting the care I need.
Prompt, professional, personable and took care of the problem
Love it...well as much as you could love going to the foot doc!!!!!
Great guy, and knows his stuff. 1st time visit and I highly recommend.
liked the office and fast!!!!
He was very knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend him
Great! Kristine was very nice...Dr Burns was very nice....it was a good experience.
Dr. Burns is perhaps my favorite doctor that I've ever been to! The moment I completed my paperwork, they took me back (ahead of my appt!) and Dr. Burns was in momentarily. He talked through my options with me, including cost and after-care. Since I am a girl who wears mostly flip flops and the injury was to my toenail, he also discussed what the different options would look like from an aesthetics perspective, which I appreciated. The procedure was then painless and I was out and on my way in no time at all, with a follow-up appt easily scheduled!
Answered all questions before proceeding. Make sure I understood followup instructions.
Great experience for my first visit to a foot doctor but it went well. He immediately put me at ease and I will feel more confident going back.
This was our third visit to Dr. Burns to care for my dad's feet. Dr. Burns has always been pleasant, courteous, explained the medical treatment thoroughly and have always felt comfortable with the care provided to my dad. Would highly recommend Dr. Burns.
Very pleasant experience will return!
First-rate experience in all categories of patient care.
I had not seen Dr. Burns in a while and am glad to know he is still the friendly and good doctor who knows his specialty. My feet are very happy because of him!
Myi son and I were veryi impressed with Dr,. Burnes. He is a very decent man, and not out to overcharge his patients. It was refreshing to find a doctor who didn't want us to finance his vacation!
Really reasonable and conservative which I like
Always a good experience!!
I have seen Dr. Burns a number of times and have always been pleased. He is pleasant, caring and competent.
He was great. Explained everything clearly.
Just what I was looking for in a Dr.. Caring, Conservative, with the right "game plan" for my foot pain. I made a second Appt., so I thank my Girlfriend and Jazzercise Teacher, Karen Bolt for referral.:)
Great visit, I found him very willing to talk.
Very kind, professional....took my needs, including my financial needs into account, while also seeking to provide the best possible treatment. Answered all of my questioned.
Dr Burns and his staff were knowledgable, friendly & courteous. I will recommend their services to my friends and family.
So far my visit went well. Dr Burns answered all my questions and I have made an appointment to address my concerns. I will see if that goes great too.
Very thorough and friendly. The Dr. went out of his way to explain the procedure. Asked for follow-up.
Doctor is very knowledgable when it comes to laser treatment.
