I find the clinic and staff to be very helpful. The environment is very calming and soothing both in the way the clinic is arranged, and the staff never acts rushed or stressed -- I don't receive that level or treatment at the hospitals in my community

January 27, 2014

Appreciated the feedback on the new medication (Tecfidera) as we were new to the medication. Also the discontinuing of meds that were deemed unnecessary. Very informative and useful visit.

November 18, 2013

Dr Burns spent approx. 45 minutes with me. He answered every question I had, gave me a lot of additional information about medications and treatment. He made me feel extremely comfortable. My husband and I were very impressed with his knowledge of MS and his willingness to answer questions. He never seemed rushed and made us feel that we were the most important people in his office that day.
