    I was very pleased with the professionalism displayed during my last visit.

    April 25, 2018

    I like Dr. Burns, but I my app. was at 3:20, had xrays (no wait) but when I got in the room, I waited approximately 30 mins. Then when Dr. Burns came in she explained, but she rushed me, I feel she should have given me more time, to ask more questions. I could tell she just wanted to either leave or to the next appointment
