“I enjoy being someone my patients rely on and being able to help them through some of the most difficult things they will face. Patients with pain have often been to many different doctors and have had many tests. I like the challenge of sorting through this with them, listening to them and coming up with a treatment plan together that best matches their personal needs.” – Dr. Burgher
