I don't think I can come up with enough good things to say about Dr. Burgess and his nurse practitioner, Tracey Myers. I've had carpal tunnel release on both hands, and thumb joint replacement on one hand, and every moment of care from my initial visits, until each of me follow-up visits, have made me feel as though I'm the most important patient they have. My surgeries are a success due to the skill of Dr. Burgess, and I can't recommend him highly enough.
