"Dr. Burnett has saved my hand again so I can work thru summer. Surgery in the Fall but all good now. He's the only doc that I don't dread visiting. Spends plenty of time with me, answers my questions, and seems to be an "extra mile" kind of doctor. Always smiling, always helpful."

"Dr. Burkett is the best"

"Dr. Burkett is very attentive and listens to my concerns and questions. I severed the nerve and 80-90% of the tendon in my left thumb. I'm left-handed so my concerns were/are many. Throughout the process Dr. Burkett has and continues to maintain an excellent bedside manner and genuinely seems to care about my well-being. I have never felt rushed or ignored during my visits. I would highly recommend Dr. Burkett!"

"So pleased with this surgeon. He explains things well, asks and answers questions and seems not to have the stereotypical “Dr. God” view of himself, as previous generations of doctors sometimes did. Approachable, with a good bedside manner. I heartily recommend him."

"Dr. Burkett is wonderful, would have given a 5 star except for new patients are asked questions in the beginning, then has to turn around and re-enter the same information into the system again yourself"

"Had a finger on my right hand that would "stick" in a bent position. A nurse friend referred to it as trigger finger. Got an appointment with Dr. Burkett about 10 days after I called. Got an x-ray, did a quick medical history with one of nurses and after a very brief wait, saw the doctor. He explained the condition discussed options and recommended a cortisone shot for the condition saying it solved the problem about 70% of the time. He told me the condition should improve over several days and if it was not significantly better in four weeks, come back in. while still a little tight feeling, it is about 90% better, near normal for 68 year old fingers! AOC is a very efficient office and the office staff and doctors like Dr. Burkett make every visit a very positive experience."
