Dear Dr. Burke,

I wanted to send you a sincere thank you for the care and compassion that you extended to my three children and to me during their stay at the Good Samaritan Hospital NICU.

I always had complete confidence in your diagnostic and management skills concerning their ROP, and I was very appreciative of your candid, yet cautious approach. During our follow up appointments, I found your office staff to be extremely courteous and dutiful in keeping up with insurance companies.

Having a premature baby, and in my case three babies, is a very terrifying time in a mother's life. But, I can assure you, having the option to choose the best physician to care for your children helps relieve some of the stress.

We will see you December for their follow up appointments.

Sincerely, Sheila M.D.

Dr. Burke,

This is John ****, you did a couple of eye surgeries on me recently. Over the last couple of months , I've come further along than I ever dreamed possible. After doing some short and long range eye exercises, I am now able to go outside on a bright day without sunglasses, drive at night without anti-glare glasses, and the big one - work in front of the computer without glasses or a glare guard. I honestly never thought I would be able to do any of these things again. Still get a little dizzy at the computer (not enough to hinder my doing too much). So not 100% yet, but this is better than I could have hoped for. And thank God no more medication. I just want to send you a thank you note because I can't put into words how grateful I am for all you've done for me. In a way, you gave me my life back. We're almost there. probably need to relax the brain somehow, like you said. Thank you so much Dr. Burke, and at the risk of sounding really gay, you're like an angel to me.

Thanks again, John

Dear Dr. Burke,

The reason for this letter is just to thank you for how generous you are in the care that you offer to your patients. I have been seeing you for as long as I can remember, and I know that I have always felt comfortable coming to see you. Thank you for your patience, your ability to listen and respond kindly to any concerns, and best of all your warmth and genuine concern for me. Sometimes you may be running behind, or a little off schedule, but it never shows. I know you will spend the right amount of time needed to get a thorough and complete diagnosis of my concurs or condition.

Thanks for caring. Thanks for being a great doctor. I wish you could do the type of surgery I am interested in. I would do it in a heartbeat even if I would have to pay out of pocket! Thanks for who you are and what you do. Many other doctors could learn a great deal from you.

Sincerely, Sheila

Dr. Burke and Staff,

Thank you all for the help you gave me with my surgery. It means so much to me. I'm so happy with the way things went. I look like a whole new me.

Thank you, Jessica

Thank you for seeing my daughter, Anna, Yesterday. I really appreciate taking time from your lunch to reassure a worried mom. I was very impressed with you, your staff, and even your space. Your kindness and professionalism did not go unnoticed.

Thank You! Shana

Dr. Burke,

I just want to tell you thank you for everything you have done for me. I'm so happy with the way my eye surgery turned out. So I just wanted to say thank you.

Thanks, Jessica

Dr. Burke,

I wanted to let you know that I made my way through college. I also wanted to let you know that without you this wouldn't have been possible. As I get older the more I come to appreciate everything you have done for my family and also myself. I will never be able to thank you enough, but know that I am not taking my vision for granted and yes, I do have my glasses on!

Take care and god bless, Jennifer

Dear Dr. Burke,

Warmest Regards, Laura

A few kind words from our Patients...

  • Dr Burke, First, thank you for your diagnosis and comfort you provided my wife and me with respect to our daughter Gwyneth. Our family physician's opinions mean the world to us, and she says you're the best. Your office is very fun, your staff is wonderfully pleasant and professional, and seeing you work was indeed a privilege.
  • Dr Burke, I just want to take a moment to thank you for everything you have done for our daughter. From day one you have been phenomenal; always taking your time and making sure she was comfortable with you and your procedures. She has spent the last week and a half telling everyone in the most excited tone ever,”Dr.Burke fixed my eye!” You may see a spike in referrals among three year olds (haha!!). She's your biggest fan! Thanks for being so wonderful!
  • Dr Burke, Thank you for enabling me to clearly see just how beautiful this world is, again. I am very thankful for your healing skills, but most appreciative of your exceptional thoughtfulness. Thank you for giving me a part of your vacation time-truly a gift. My fourth graders and I will benefit greatly from it. Most Appreciatively,
  • Dr Burke , Let me first say how fortunate Willy (my son) and I have been to have had you for a surgeon and doctor. You have a gift in making people feel so comfortable (not all people/ or doctors have that you know)! I remember the time Willy brought in a fake rubber rat (around Halloween) to "scare," you, and you walked in and threw your file of papers up in the air-it was great fun! Thanks for Everything!
  • Dr Burke examined my son’s eyes and spoke with him. You told me,"Andrew’s eyes are fine. Andrew is dyslexic." My response was: “What do we do?” You suggested the book ‘Overcoming Dyslexia,’ by Sally Shaywitz. My husband and I read the book and began practicing the principles advised. I will not lie, it was a struggle and an enormous amount of work. Within a year, Andrew’s Reading and self-esteem improved tremendously. Thank You.
  • Dr Burke, We wanted to thank you for the special care you have given our children Winston and Norah. Our kids loved coming to see you and we appreciate the special attention you give to each one. We feel very confident and comfortable in your care. Thanks Again!
  • Dr Burke, I wanted to give you an update on Elizabeth who was under your care from age 4 until a few years ago. When we left your office after she first saw you, she looked up and said, "I want to be a doctor just like Dr. Burke." Elizabeth is now in her third year of medical school and is still interested in pediatric ophthalmology. She started an ophthalmology club for the medical students and she volunteers at different events doing vision checks. You're such an inspiration to her she has said she plans on being a doctor, "Just like Dr. Burke."
  • Dr Burke is my hero! Dr. Burke is the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. I was born cross-eyed and had an eye surgery on both eyes as an infant and another surgery on one as a child. Because of my eye muscle problems, I have always been seen by a doctor with Dr. Burke’s specialties but none of my previous doctors were as caring and kind as Dr. Burke.
  • Dr Burke, We cannot thank you enough for fixing Corey's eye. He is so excited to have a normal looking eye and seeing normal. You have given him the ability to be successful at school and in life. And he hopes one day, "He can make miracles happen just like you!" We are so grateful. Thank You!
