Dr. Burden instilled confidence in me as to her skill. In addition to being skilled, she is very pleasant and thoughtful. She demonstrated an especially good recollection of my overall health issues, as these pertained to my specific treatment in her care. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing eye surgery.


Dr. Burden is terrific. She's warm and friendly on the one hand and thoughtful and professional on the other. Her medical knowledge seems top flight and she inspires confidence. She always made sure the treatment decisions were mine after she explained the options. Excellent clinician and warm person.


Dr. Burden is fantastic. I did not expect to get in to see her the day after I called for an appointment as I know the clinic is a busy one. But I was delighted that I did. Once in her office, my issue was completely resolved and I did not expect that to be the case either. I was very pleased with this visit.


my eye doctor beamed with confidence and made me feel comfortable with me being in her hands to help me with my vision problem


Dr. Susan Burden is one of the greatest doctors I have had appointments with. I would recommend her to anybody who needs eye surgery. She is so knowledgeable and told me about the surgery before the surgery and followed up with information about eye drops and activity.
