How likely are you to recommend Dr. Burkus?

(Select your rating)
Nearly 3 years ago, Dr. Burkus accepted my 22 yo daughter as a patient. She had a laminectomy at another institution and suffered a devastating post op infection, epidural abscess and discitis. Her pain was unbearable. He did a spinal fusion on her and she slowly regained her life back, because he was willing to pick up someone else’s mess. He is more than capable, and he cares. I will forever be in his debt. So when I developed a problem, he is the one i wanted to see.
