    I see a lot of doctors for various conditions. I've had some good doctors and some not so good. Dr Burnett is beyond good. He explains things very well. He listens and addresses your concerns. He is the BEST doctor I've had the opportunity to meet. I will continue to trust him with my care and will recommend him to anyone that requires a great Neuro surgeon. Sadly many doctors don't inform their patients and assume they know what us best for the patient and make decisions without consent. Dr Burnett is someone we can trust to inform us and make decisions together. He is a treasure.

He as thorough with me as he showed where he would be doing surgery on. He explained the type of procedure he would be doing and was very confident.
