About our process
Dec 30, 2021
My follow up care after surgery is always the responsibility of his staff. Therefore I do not expect that there will be any contact between me and the provider after surgery. I wish that situation could be done differently.
Dec 16, 2021
I wish we had a few more minutes at the end of the visit because I became confused by some things the nurse practitioner said to me.

Sr Burch instilled confidence and was very honest

Dr Burch not only answered my questions but also warned me against unnesasarily proscribed procedures recommended by another provider

Dr. Burch was a very nice provider who maintained great eye contact and did seem like he cared however he seemed incredibly rushed and was standing up grabbing the door handle within 10 minutes pretty antsy to get out. This was my first time ever talking to an orthopedic specialist about my scoliosis. I was let down at how rushed he was & I felt like I did not get to fully discuss the things I felt were important.

Was I. A hurry. Did not go over films that I brought in and was the reason for the hold up. Was unaware that I had not gone through with previous recommendations by him because if denial Bro worker man's Comp. Did not read his own radiologist report saying that there was no change in my wedge fracture and the fact that I needed treatment. Very dissappointed. I felt I was not heard or that my case was fully reviewed.

Unfortunately I was seen by a Fellow prior to Dr. Burch. It's unfortunate that patients can't give feedback on the person who they spend the most time with in this case the Fellow. It wasn't a good experience which I shared with Dr. Burch.

Dr. Shane Burch is one of the few doctors I've had the pleasure of meeting that seems to genially care and provide all the answers to my questions. My major back surgeries were handled with great care and concern. I will be forever grateful for meeting this doctor.

The surgeon seemed apathetic in his response from start to finish. My injury/case is standard and may have just not required much concern from the doctor.

Physician's assistant was great. Doctor Burch not up to what we expected.
