3 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Burke

"I had the most positive experience receiving the Ross Procedure surgery from Dr. Burke.

The pre-surgery interview went super well – he is so knowledgeable about all aspects of heart valve surgery and answered all of my questions. The surgical procedure and recovery in the ICU went smoothly and I appreciated Dr. Burke’s attentiveness in conveying surgery outcomes to my family and checking in with me in recovery. His bedside manners are excellent. Dr. Burke and his team are very responsive to messaging via My Chart.

I’m now four months past my surgery and back to trail running 25 miles/week. I’m so very grateful to Dr. Burke and the whole medical team at the UW Heart Institute."

"Dr. Burke is a perfectionist with his work, and I could tell that from the first time I spoke with him. He has a true passion for what he does. My Ross Procedure went exceptionally well, and I couldn’t be more grateful for Dr. Burke and his team for extending my life, really, and for making the worry go away that I had prior to surgery. I highly recommend him to anyone with a heart valve disease. "
