He is also an expert in mitral and tricuspid valve therapies to repair or replace ailing valves. He practices at PIH Health Good Samaritan Hospital, where they have one of the largest percutaneous valve repair programs in the nation and also participates in new and innovative clinical trials.

Dr. Burstein is one of the best doctors in the world. He is knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate, kind, respectful, patient, cheerful, and funny. I wish all doctors had these qualities. The office staff is also very efficient, organized and hard working.

You can stop having these surveys on the phone. You can put them online and you should. I don't know why you need these surveys anyway. I've been doing the same doctor for more than 2 decades. You know, the only question I have is about PIH, not about my doctor. Take care.
