Caring and Prompt!

“Dr. Burt is a wonderful doctor! I am a high risk patient because of a heart issue. I was very nervous about having to have shoulder surgery. Dr. Burt worked with my cardiologist to make sure that I was on the best path. He was so kind and caring of my concerns because of the possible bleeding issues. Since my surgery Dr. Burt has responded promptly with phone calls and worked me in when I needed to be seen and he listens with care when I complain about the pain I am still feeling.”


“I was able to get an “urgent” visit promptly. Dr. Burt was wonderful!”
