    Outstanding physician.

    “Chris Burris, MD, is an outstanding physician who provides exceptional and above the norm care. Dr. Burris always explains in detail using layman’s terms the conditions affecting your eyes and explains the pros and or cons. He is very personable, his demeanor is exceptional and he speaks with the utmost respect. Very few doctors use this approach.”
