Very happy with my surgery results. Both doctor and office staff have an exceptionally positive attitude and this has been reflected in my recovery.

I was amazed that he knew my whole medical background before I even met with him. I'd been having problems with my knee and back for months (having had spinal surgery 2 years ago) but thought my problem was stemming from my knee. Nope. After meeting with me and listening to my descriptions of what I've been experiencing, he recommended that I have an updated scan of my back to check the status of the stenosis. But the immediate problem turned out to be hip bursitis. He gave me a steroid injection on each side and it has helped greatly. I was totally blown away with Dr. Akhtar's care, concern and knowledge. There should be more physicians who take the time and effort to make their patients (especially a brand new patient) feel really special.

We were a new patient and filled out info prior to office visit thinking it would be quicker. Unfortunately the Doctor was running behind about an hour (which is not uncommon at most specialist offices). He was very very cordial and apologetic about making us Wait but he did give us plenty of his time when we saw him. At this point I would say I Feel we could have A good relationship in the Future

I sincerely appreciated the attention Dr. Akhtar gave me concerning my knee. Not only was he thorough, but kind and patient. In a time where everyone seems to be rushing to the next task, my visits were focused on my needs.

Dr. Burris is a caring, thoughtful professional. He reviewed my information prior to my appointment so that we could make the most of our face time. Dr. Burris didn't have good news for me but he was thorough in his explanation and patiently answered all of my questions. The surgery that I need is not within his specialty so he referred me to another Dr. whom he considers to be excellent at the procedure. I wish that I could work with Dr. Burris, based on his manner and expertise and I think that it was very stand-up of him to refer me on because it would be in my best interest. Dr. Burris' staff are an excellent introduction to his practice. Friendly, prompt and efficient. I wish them all well and thank them for their help.

Good experience. Excellent bed manners. Dr. Burris listen to the patient, then try to resolve what issues he can, or may refer you somebody else who can.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Ahktar. Aside from being extremely competent, he’s caring and concerned. He takes the time to explain things and he’s responsive to my needs. He makes you feel like you’re the most important person in his life. I don’t know how he does that, but I’m grateful I’m the one receiving his care!

He knew what he was talking about, and he told it like it was. I could get more flowery on the particulars, but the older you get, it's really only the first sentence that becomes important.

Dr. Burris was welcoming and made us feel very comfortable about our son’s upcoming ACL surgery by clearly explaining the procedure and showing us a model of the knee. He thoroughly answered all the questions we had, which helped ease our minds.

Dr. Burris is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I am a RN, so I am picky about my doctors. He has a great beside manner, takes a conservative approach, and truly desires to help and heal patients. He never rushes and does a very comprehensive examination. He has an excellent reputation as a surgeon from several PTs that I have seen over the years and that says a lot. I always recommend him to anyone having orthopedic issues.
