Was not quiet sure on what provider was going to do concerning my problem. Felt like it was hurry up and lets get this done and over with. Left with not knowing what to expect from shots given and whether or not shots where given in the right area for my neck pain. Also did not know what to expect from the shots given etc. Seems like in all fairness a rush job.

Dr. Burnett is an excellent physician! He has been treating my Degenerative Disc Disease for about 6 years. The outcomes of the treatments have always been very good! He is always very careful, precise and gentle when conducting the injections into my spine area! I would not trust anyone else to complete these treatments!

Dr. Burnett is professional in his bedside manner yet friendly and highly respectful each and every time I\'ve seen him dating back to 2011. I trust him completely in administering injections and in providing treatment for me. He is definitely a great asset to the Baylor- Scott and White staff and deserves to be honored for outstanding patient care.

I had an appointment to get an injection in my neck. When I got there I found out that the procedures have changed and I could not get the injection today, this was only an office visit to get preapproval. It would\'ve been nice to know that ahead of time so my wife would not have to get out of bed early just to drive me home. This is the second time this has happened. A complete lack of communication. Very disappointed

I did not have much time with this provider. just less than 5 minutes and I feel I was not really listened to in terms of my chronic pain. The only interest was cutting off my meds to a lower dose but not telling me just how I can go about helping the pain. i was at a loss so i took what i thought really didnt matter.

I felt like I was being rushed through. The doctor was only in with me between 5 to 10 minutes. He had me do a couple of things and then told me that he couldn\'t do anything for me at that time because I\'m taking a blood thinner. Then he had me schedule another appointment to come back in 6 months. I\'m just very discouraged with this problem, it\'s been going on for 6 months now. I can\'t walk on my own, I have to use a Walker because I need a hip replacement.

I was extremely disappointed in regard to follow up problems and questions after my visit in October. I was in severe pain and was given absolutely no help in MyChart. When I told Dr Burnett about it at my Feb visit, he showed little concern about the problem or the handling of the whole issue. One of my most frustrating experiences in 43 years of being a Scott & White patient.
Feb 14, 2019
I wish you would address the "care/concern" that the PA or intern gave. Dr. Burnett is wonderful however his assistants leave much to be desired.
