For 30 years, I've seen *Dr. Burg primarily for colonoscopies according to the universally recommended schedule. Therefore and fortunately, I am not a patient he sees on a regular basis. Yet I was given a same-day appointment, the exam was thorough, and *Dr. Burg has followed-up with me on this current, minor (my word) condition. The condition has improved and he continues to have my utmost faith and trust.
