04/11/11 4 5 2 2 I saw Dr. Burns for management of hypertension as I wanted a physician closer to home than my previous internist. Neither he nor his assistant checked my heart or lungs and I felt the visit was very rushed. He prescribed the same medication I was taking even though I noted in my history it was no longer effective. Overall, I was very disappointed especially given all the other glowing reviews on this site. I won't be returning.

19/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Burns and his staff are professional, friendly and caring. Repectful of patients. Unbelievably patient with kids (mine hate shots) OK I do to! Dr. Burns and his staff take as long as it takes to relax the child. Never rushed. Detail explination and great listener of patient concerns. Goes well beyond expectations. I recieved an article in the mail regarding an difficult condition after a visit. It made me feel like he really listened and thought about me and my concerns even after my visit.

24/02/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Burns is the bet Primary Care Physician I have ever had. My husband and I both started seeing Dr. Burns a couple of years ago and we always felt like we received the best care since day one. He is patient and is not rushed and takes time to make sure your office visit is personable and comfortable. I speak on the behalf of my husband as well, when I say that we highly reccommend Dr. Burns to both children and adults!

12/12/07 5 4 2 2 I'm not a big fan. Moved to NJ a few months ago and started having horrible back pains (at 23 years old). Dr. Burns sat on the other side of the room and never came over to check me out. Passed it off as a UTI, which we found out it was not. Sent me for a CAT scan and couldn't see anything. He pretty much told me it was all in my head. I could hardly move but he didn't seem to care.

30/09/07 5 5 5 5 BROVO! Highly trusted! First saw 10 yrs. ago. I have all the confidence I could possibly have in a MD...spends time, explains in detail, listens, is up on what is new, what works, and what doesn't. I liked that he didn't just pass out drugs but rather treated w a mix of vit, diet, exercise, and meds when needed. Found him as a pediatric doctor when we moved, but chose him as our family doctor. He returns calls even at 4am! Very gentle manner  Respond
