6 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Burns

"Dr. Burns was very thorough and honest about what to expect. Explained the surgery and possible side effects and answered all questions. Felt comfortable and confident having him perform my surgery."

-- Katie McClain, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Median Sternotomy, 01/27/2022

"You won't get better treatment than you will get from Dr. Daniel Burns. His manners and his answers at our pre-operative meeting were complete and reassuring. Dr. Burns favors chordae reconstruction and he was able to perform the valvoplasty and chordae reconstruction as planned. The repair was perfect with no regurgitation. Dr. Burns was there for me after surgery.

The medical team at the Cleveland Clinic contributed grandly to the success of my operation. The clinic is the leader in heart care and the professionals are ready for any contingency. The nurses in the cardio step down unit were pleasant, skilled, and always available. My recovery was typical and I did not have any mettlesome complications. "
