I have been a patient of this Practice since 2005. I have seen several of the doctors here for different reasons. Dr. Burt has done all of my surgeries except for 3. He and his staff have always been extremely caring and compassionate. Dr. Burt always explains in detail my diagnosis and options of treatment. I have and will continue to refer my family and friends to this practice.

I saw Dr. Burt for an injured thumb. He suggested surgery to fix it. He gave detailed information as to what procedure he recommended and why he recommended it. He was very thorough and took his time. I definitely recommend him and if I am ever in need of an orthopedic doctor I will definitely go back to him. The entire staff was a pleasure to work with from the beginning.
