Patient Reviews

I would like to share my experience I had with Dr. Burns for my total knee replacement surgery.  Dr. Burns presented himself very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He encouraged me to ask questions, and he answered all of them. I felt very prepared and comfortable, and understood exactly how the procedure was going to take place.  I was very happy with his care and concern, his genuine interest and calming effect he provided to me before, during and after my surgery. I had a wonderful experience at the Bone and Joint Institute, and I thank Dr. Burns and his Staff for making my experience very pleasant. They are an awesome team.

Dr. Burns did my total knee replacement two years ago, it was a great success and a quick, full recovery after my PT. Very attentive to patient needs, listens to your concerns and absolutely no problems with this surgical site, nice straight incision and healed beautifully. I have referred many friends and relatives to Dr. Burns, he has several office locations so it’s convenient no matter where you live. I give him 5 stars but he deserves 10!


Work in the fast-paced medical field, and be part of a passionate team dedicated to improving lives every day. Epic knowledge and experience are a plus.
