Dr. Burke is very kind and nice. He explained every detail about my left knee condition and suggested a ACL revision. I truly thank God that I can meet him and have him checking my knee condition! My knees have been bothering me for over 15 years and finally that I can see some hope that I might be able to play basketball one more time without worrying falling down:)
Visit, office, and staff were excellent. Dr. Burke is very professional and thorough but talks to you in a way that makes me feel very comfortable.
HE Is the BEST MD in the area and I would not GO to anyone ELSE!!!! HE s Wonderful!!!!! I would NEVER go to anyone ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dr. Burke simply does not perform the type of surgery needed for my distal biceps tendon rupture. He did refer me to Dr. Bradley, who is out of town and not available. I am not in a position to delay surgery, hence I found another surgeon.
I consider Dr Charles Burke III, one of the best in his field. I or my family members have been his patients for more than 15yrs. I have only had good experiences with him and his staff.
Dr. Burke is an excellent doctor
wait times to long
this visit was like all medical apptschool should be The team was excellent
The x-ray was explained very well showing what was the likely cause of my knee pain. My pain was not allievated for I needed to wait for an MRI to be scheduled for further diagnosis.
Very, Very Good.
The staff in this office is always knowledgeable and professional.
imformed of all that was going on. very respectful and empathetic. very thorough in my exam.
love this Dr.
my experience was very good..
Prompt, expert evaluation and diagnosis with specific plan for treatment and options discussed. Felt I was able to make best and confident decisions for care based on that.
As a new patient I wish I had been asked more questions initially. The doctor and staff were very professional however, I did not realize or was not aware till during the appointment this doctor dealt with knees only. I thought he was an orthopedic doctor. I My pain from my hips and low back was not addressed for me this visit was a waste of the co-pay.
Me and three of my children have all had two or more surgeries done by Dr. Burke. Highly recommend he and his staff. They deserve the highest possible score that can be given. Couldn't ask for any better treatment or care. They are the BEST.
while the doctor and everyone was very professional. my sons appt was at 12:00, we arrived at 11:45 like they asked. we did not get into an exam room till 12:50.
Excellent Doctor. Made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision or proceed with surgry
I cannot express sufficiently how professional Dr. Burk was with me in the examination process as well as the explanation of my issues. He was VERY professional (which I highly value), very courteous, very patient with my questions and left me with TOTAL interest in follow up after knee injections. I cannot say enough in praise of this doctor and how he and his staff, all of them with whom I interacted, were patient, courteous, interested in my well being. My decision to see Dr. Burk was highly valuable.
This was my first visit to the office. My appointment ran smoothly, efficiently and professionally, and the information I received from the doctor was thorough and easily understood. I plan to return to deal with my issue.
Had to wait a long time after xray was taken to actually see the md. But when I saw him, he was very helpful.
Dr. burke is an excellent doctor. He is kind, considerate and caring. He is a gem in today's medical establishment.
I'm so happy with being seen on time! It's so rare in the medical industry in my history, it was refreshing especially considering I had my 1 year old with me. I walked in, checked in, and was seen 5 min later.
overall good experience
very friendly and personable and explained everything that was taking place with my injury
The staff was over-extended and I had a long wait visit. My son spoke to several staff members and, they didn't explain the long wait period until he repeated asked what was going on.
excellent practice, able to address all concerns and recommend a reasonable course of treatment. very satisfied with Dr Burke and his entire staff.
Dr. Burke was very kind and helpful in out ling what choice I could make between A or B.
First time patient with left knee pain. From my initial call to inquire about an appointment to my exit after scheduling my follow up apt. the experience was a 10 on a scale of 0-10. As busy as the office was, the staff was friendly, efficient, and courteous. Dr. Burke clearly explained what the x-rays revealed but the follow up MRI will determine the course of treatment. His excellent reputation is on par with how he talks to his patients. Even though I only had a short visit with Dr. Burke it is evident that he cares about his patients.
It has been my great benefit to have seen Dr. Burke for all my orthopedic concerns. He is outstanding in every way and I have all the confidence in the world in his insights, treatment and recommendations. He has operated on my before and will be doing so again soon. I couldn't be in better hands.
Very comfortable and welcoming enviroment
excellent doctor and staff
Very pleased with the visit.

I was given an appointment very quickly after calling. Dr. Burke immediately assessed my problem, gave me precise expectations, and worked efficiently and considerately. I could not have asked for better treatment.
Was really in pain, got the advice and relief I needed for my shoulder.
When I was waiting for a little while for paper work to be prepared for pre-op procedure, one of the staff called to let me know that it would be a little longer...I was impressed and very much satisfied. Dr. Burke was extremely informative about my condition and concerns, AND was very patient with me.
I have never had such a positive experience as I had with Dr. Burke. For the first time ever I felt like I was given honest answers about my condition and how to proceed with my issues in the future. He was very thorough, kind, compassionate and friendly.
Dr.Burke and his team are the very best.
I waited for almost an hour to see the doctor after my appointment time

The provider took the time to carefully explain my condition and the options for treatment.

Dr. Burke and his entire staff is the best in the business. Always courteous and prompt with follow up calls to ensure I was satisfied. Dr. Burke operated on my right shoulder three years ago and now the left is giving me problems. He did such a good job with my right should I would not let any else work on my current left shoulder issue. He is the BEST!

This is the first time I have seen Dr. Burke. I absolutely love him! His bedside manner is astounding...he is easy to talk to and explained everything...including drawing pictures to show me what was happening to my knee. I would recommend to all my friends!
This doctor was incredible. He took lots of time with me, and he provided insight into my condition that no doctor had in 25 years of treatment. Even though his patients include many professional athletes, this doctor treated me as if I were just as important. His bedside manner was extraordinary!
I was so pleased with the care I received during my visit

wonderful doctor. allowed me to be a part of the decision making for my care. highly respected!
Very friendly --Very knowledgeable
3 operations (rt knee, 2 rt elbow) with Dr Burke and all were successful. Actions speak louder than words.
Dr. Burke is very personable, gives good information, shows concern for my problem, made a quick decision, asked my advice in choosing treatment. Business like and encouraging with ability to give me confidence that I can recover. I liked his approach and his interest in my background--however, time did not permit much small talk as he is a very busy doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.
I had a knee injury, 1st time I say dr. burke... if I have any other issues with this I will only see him.. I loved him.
I couldn't have been happier with how quickly they all worked to get this taken care of. It was more than I could have hoped for.
So blessed to be able to have Dr. Burke as my doctor. Dr. Burke has great personal skills and excellent feedback.
Very Satisfied with Dr Burke
It seemed like after just a few minutes of explaining my symptoms, dr. burke zeroed in on the cause.
Pleased to see that Dr. Burke is still in "the game." I will probably have this right knee replaced in the Spring 2016.
This was my first visit to this physician for an orthopedic problem. I intend to return to him for any follow up or treatment, as needed.
Dr. Burke and his staff are amazing.
I felt that Doctor Burke was very professional and understanding and took the time to explain everything along with outcomes that I should expect.

Patient and thorough. Appreciate his explanation in everyday terminology.

Dr.Burke is the best doctor and surgeon. He is an awesome doctor. He deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for the worlds best surgeon.

Dr. Burke was extremely knowledgeable about my situation. He took the time to review my pervious records, answered any questions, and provided his honest opinion. I chose Dr. Burke because of his experience with athletes.
I recommend Dr. Burke to everyone I know that needs a awesome Dr. like him.
We had a very nice visit. The doctor WAS REALLY INFORMATIVE AND HELPFUL. wE WILL BE BACK IF WE NEED HIS CARE AGAIN.
The office staff and doctor were very professional and kind.
very friendly to both myself and my 7 year old son!
Dr. Burke's concern for and care for and of his patients is unparalled, and that care and concern are "infectious" because his staff mirroers that care and those concerns and his "off the charts" friendliness. He's the BEST!!!
Dr. Burke did surgery on my elbow years ago and I did not hesitate to go back to him when had another issue. I have recommended him to both family and friends.
My overall experience was positive.
Dr Burke did a great job of diagnosing my injury, explaining my options, referring me for the appropriate testing (MRI) and referring me to his partner Dr Bradley who has more surgical experience with my injury. Dr Burke has an excellent bedside manner and it is clear that cares for his patients.
Dr.Burke Is very Patient with me as he knows that I don't want to get my shoulder operated on and has told me that it is my decision and I must make it and I would when I can't stand the pain any longer. I like that he is not forcing me to do it. I realize that probably will have to do it but not now.
Dr. Burke has exceeded my expectations since my first meeting with him.
The whole experience was very pleasant and I would recommend Dr. Charles Burke to anyone.
Very pleased with the doctor enlisting my opinions in my care.
dr. burke listened to my concerns then shares his with me after examining my knee. my knee pain has subsided since my last treatment in his office.
Dr Burke took the time to review the MRI with me and show what was wrong and explain in detail how the procedure would be done.
Great staff what you want when you're in need of medical care !!!!
very professional and efficient
Dr Burke is simply the best!!!!
Chip Burke is an outstanding orthopedist and a good man. I think very highly of him.

The Experience Was All Good For Me And I'm On My Way To Get Better..
I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Burke to people that I know who can use his services.
I had a great experience with Dr Burke and his office / staff. I went to a different orthopedic and hated him. Burke and Bradley is a top notch medical office!
This was my first visit to Dr. Burke. He is polite, articulate, intelligent and insightful. His expertise helped to him make a precise diagnosis of my medical condition. He then offered me several options and allowed me to make the decision concerning my treatment. A wonderful visit, everything I could have hoped for.
Dr. Burke is a good listener when I have health concerns. He explains things very well.
In my opinion, Dr. Burke is the best Orthopedic Doctor in the City of Pittsburgh. Along with his knowledge of his craft, he is a great communicator and has a great 'bedside manner'.....he is always talking to you not down at you...
10 years ago I had a frozen shoulder as a result of a car accident and Dr.Burke saved my shoulder. It is always a pleasureseeing Dr. Burke. He is not only an excellent doctor but also a great guy.
