A gentleman and a scholar! In a country that expects instant gratification, I am grateful for someone like Dr. Burday who takes the time to explain, allows the patient to ask questions, is conversational and respectful even during those odd times when surgical procedures are necessary. There isn’t another specialist in his field that am aware of that is more professional and courteous. If, as someone intimated, he is dismissive, he was most likely dealing with an unreasonable patient.

We really appreciate Dr. Burday’s compassionate care. He takes his time, and is not done with his patients, until he has answered all questions.

He is a great physician. Treats my mom like she was the only patient he had to see that day. Very patient, caring, and concerned with her health.
