"Dr. Burkett is great. I have an unusual problem and he sent me to another doctor to make sure his diagnosis was right. Most doctor’s have ego’s too big to allow them to do something like that."

"Dr Burkett at AOC is very knowledgeable and has great bedside manner! Explained everything to us after a very scary accident where my teenage son's fingers were partially amputated by a lawnmower blade in Oct 2019. From the emergency room visit, all the way through two surgeries and the follow-up visits, we've had nothing but praise for Dr. Burkett, his colleges and staff! I highly recommend OAC!"
