"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."

"Dr Burkett is an excellent surgeon. I can now enjoy my favorite hobby, baking. My hand hurt so bad that I was unable to do the things I enjoyed I could not ride my bicycle as I could not grip the handlebars, I love to cook and bake and I was struggling with it. The best decision I could make was to have Dr Burkett operate"
