"I fell and broke my wrist while caving in north Alabama (my first broken bone in 39 years!). I requested to work with Dr. Burkett because he was highly recommended. Dr. Burkett took time to answer my questions and explained every step of the way. After my surgery, he prescribed therapy to build strength and regain my range of motion; now my wrist is back to normal and the pain is gone. I would gladly recommend Dr. Burkett to anyone."
