What do patients say about Dr. Burnett? Patients say that Dr. Burnett is a perfectionist, and that they really feel cared about in his hands. Dr. Burnett demonstrates his commitment to perfection starting in each patient’s first meeting: “I want to find out what’s bothering each patient. I need to make sure I understand each new patient well enough to give her what she really wants”.
“We get very involved with each patient. We take our time. Most doctors go only as far as eliminating the problems that patients complain about. We listen.” This shows Dr. Burnett’s own standards, and is one of the outstanding characteristics that makes him a top plastic surgeon in New Jersey.
“The knife is not always a solution to life’s problems.” Dr. Burnett has performed thousands of cosmetic surgeries, but first and foremost he makes sure that surgery is the best way for each patient to achieve her goals. “I have to be convinced that surgery is the best way to get from point A to point B. This is what I expect from myself. If surgery is not the only way a patient can achieve her goals, I present the options.”
As an African American plastic surgeon, Dr. Burnett has a lot of experience with patients who have skin and body characteristics that are unique to their race. People from Spanish descent, eastern cultures, as well as African Americans want to be seen by a practice with expertise in their unique body and skin characteristics.
