    Dr. Burns and his team went above and beyond to show care for my son having surgery at age 1. He was even kind enough to give me his personal cell number to call in case. They were excellent at calming nerves of anxious parents.

  • Cyndi Kent, WA 12.27.12

    Truly a gifted and talented surgeon! We searched for 5 years and have seen 8 Dr's that said our son would 'grow out of it'. At age 10 we saw no signs of it getting any better so we thank God we found Dr Burns! He is an amazing surgeon. So patient, explained everything in precise detail and made us all feel so comfortable with everything. His bedside manner was also excellent. And children's hospital staff in Belleuve were all excellent! We will never take our children anywhere else! God Bless you all for being there for our family!

  • Teresa Bothell, WA 10.15.12

    Dr. Burns is wonderful. He has a great bedside manner and made my son's surgery experience as good as it can be. He also addressed my son's issue which made us all happy. He and his team are fantastic.

  • M VANCOUVER, WA 07.17.11

    Dr Burns performed surgery on our son when he was one. He made the whole experience less scary for our son and for that we will always be grateful.

  • Hailey Vaughn, Washington 06.10.11

    This man is amazing, when I was born, I would cry, for hours on end, and no other doctor or specialist could figure out what was wrong with me, until my mom found Dr. Burns. He found that I have kidney reflux, I am so greatful, without him I might not be alive today, but here I am 15 years later. Dr. Burns has now inspired me to become a urologist. Thank you Dr!
