Dr Burstein is magic. He is the one who did my Edward Valve, and was a MASTER at it. Came back to see him after a year to be checked and he told me that I was doing well and steady. Dr Burstein is talkative and explains everything clearly, covering all my questions. He is never in a hurry and his kindness can already make you feel better, because a doctor patient relationship is very important. Thank you Dr Burstein for your dedication, you are an Elite Doctor.

It would be nice if PIH could combine all the info on its request to pre register for each appointment. When you have a number of PIH appointments you have to fill out the same thing over and over to pre register even if nothing has changed. Would be easier if could just look over and be done.

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.
