    Mark is just a good person and pleasant to deal with. I first used Mark when he was fairly new to the area. I had prior back surgery and the result was not at all satisfactory. Mark took the time to explain the problem and operated on my back again. I am fine and would go no where else. I have followed him throughout his moves in the medical community. Your practice is very fortunate to have his expertise.

    disappointment. I had surgery as a preventative measure to avoid a foot drop . matead I have a partial foot drop and terrible foot and shin pain, numbness,tingling, searing pain which I did not have at all prior to the Surgery! now he wants to implant a spinal implant to manage pain: I don't want that. I want to have a normal gait and get rid of pain. I have similar back pain as before surgery.

    Dr. Burnett is an excellent Neurosurgeon and does fantastic work. However, his endeavor to be at 3 different locations each week has significantly hampered after care from those surgeries to the point where I have physically regressed so much that I can barely leave my house. He has to double book just to get patients in. I see him at the Round Rock location where he is only there on Thursdays. I still am driving over 20 miles to see him and this is the closest location to me. If bc of unforeseen events like unusual traffic, my severe insomnia makes it dangerous for me to drive, I am in so much pain I can't even get myself bathed and dressed then I have to reschedule. Then it's another 2-3 weeks bf I can get another appointment. After a complete revision of a previous multi-level fusion with an extension to release my cauda equine that had been trapped, twisted in bone causing SEVERE neurological symptoms and intolerable pain, I came home with a foot long incision in my back. In home therapy ended in mid March and it took me until the end of May just to get a script for outpatient physical therapy even though I asked for a script to be sent to my Physical Therapist. I severely regressed during that time and now have difficulty just standing. Completely unacceptable. Trying to get word to Dr. Burnett is nearly impossible bc of his hectic schedule and his Medical Assistant is useless. I call the office and have them send her a direct message but nothing happens. I used to send her direct emails, but nothing happened and she would just lie when she clearly failed to follow thru. Dr. Burnett is a great surgeon and a great person, but I am seriously considering moving to another Doctor bc of the poor office management, lack of communication and inability to get timely appointments.

    Dr. Burnett took his time with me, answered my questions, cautioned me that TIME is the best medicine to heal my fractures, and to use pain reduction. Use the lidocaine....that's what it's for and it does work well for me. My daughter, who came with me, and I both liked Dr. Burnett's manner.
