– Former Patient
Thank you, Dr. Burleson, for being so attentive and caring for my father, who just underwent knee surgery. He is a huge baseball fan and you quickly sought that out. He called me after the appointment to tell me about the next steps for his rehabilitation, but more so to talk about you and how great you were. Thanks so taking such good care of him.
