Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice. Baylor Scott & White Health does not manage the insurances accepted for this doctor.

Dr. Burnett did surgery on my neck in 2015 and did a wonderful job. This visit was regarding my back. I like that he doesn't rush to do surgery. He starts out with a easier approach and if it doesn't help, he will try something else. He has a great bedside manner and I trust whatever he recommends.

I am an avid 54 yo athletes and have seen many doctors for various reasons. Ive also seen many physicians across various specialties over decades. Dr. Burnet is easily one of the top, if not the top doctor I have been treated by. He was patient, personable, listened to me and answered all my questions completely and professionally. He also took the time and effort to look up an older MRI report and walked me through that one. Thankfully I do not need spinal surgery, but if I ever do I have no doubt who I will trust with that procedure. He exceeded any expectations I may have had for care. He is a jewel of a physician.

I am a returning surgery patient of Dr. Burnett. In 2010 he performed a major fusion of my spine and gave me my life back after 2 failed surgeries elsewhere.. He is highly skilled and has a terrific "bedside manner." It was an easy decision to come back for additional surgeries as needed. I don't think I would be agreeing to more surgeries without his skill, expertise, and care.

I am a nurse of 26 years, and let me tell you that Mark Burnett is the kindest sweetest and most professional Manuel ever meet. Most important he is extremely skilled with working on the nervous system and the brain. He always checks in to make sure everythings OK even months after the surgery. He always does a good job and he has helped me so much with my surgeries. I would recommend him to everyone even out of state if you need a neurosurgeon come here to Texas to see Mark Burnett.
