    I worked for Dr Burns at 44th St Doctors in the 70’s. I always found him to be a kind and compassionate doctor. I am a better person to have known him and a lucky person to have called him friend. You will be missed by many.

    Dr. Burns was a kind, compassionate man. He delivered our first born son, who is now 23, at St. Mary’s Hospital. He was so very wise & I knew I was in good hands in his care. I am sad for his family upon the great loss of their husband, father and grandfather. I am praying for God to give each of you peace and strength at this time.

    Dr Burns was my personal physician for my second pregnancy. I always admired and respected him. I worked as a nurse in OB at GROH and all the nurses told me when I started to work there that he was their favorite. That was 1980. So glad to of had the privilege of knowing him.
