Medical Professionals are limited by HIPAA as to what information they can make public about their patients, including who their patients are. As such it is very hard for Doctors, Dentists, and Psychiatrists to respond to negative comments on the wiki. Please keep this in mind while reading any comments.
2005-05-06 23:10:32 I had the misfortune of wasting about five hours at this place. The woman who runs the front office is a bit bitchy, and it took two appointments before they even started any real physical therapy. —AlphaDog
2006-06-01 16:22:29 I was told by an intern at UC Davis Sports Medicine (who formerly worked at Burger) to go elsewhere for rehab. —KaiTing
2006-06-01 19:15:56 Got referred here several years ago after ACL surgery. At the first visit they gave me a rubber band and one page of instructions. Cost my insurance a bunch of $. I never went back. Seemed like some sort of mill to me. —PaulThober
2006-06-07 14:54:30 Patients of this clnic are routinely surveyed during or immediate following their course of therapy at the clinic. Approximately 50% of the patients return their surveys. For the most recent six month period 92% of the surveyed patients indicate they will return to the clinic if they required services in the future and in the area "reception staff courtesy" scored on a five point scale with 5 being the highest (outstanding) 86% of the responses were outstanding. —JeffGarbutt

2006-09-18 15:28:29 I was also referred to Burger for a knee injury. This place seems to stay in business by charging insurance companies for full visits while the physical therapist treats 4-5 people at once. The appointments only really last 10-15 minutes, then your bounced to a student intern and they ice you. What a racket. I highly recommend Physical Edge. —CharlesMcLaughlin
2006-09-18 15:29:20 btw... I was never offered a survey, so Jeff is full of it. —CharlesMcLaughlin
2007-06-27 13:51:02 I was initially concerned because of the comments here, but maybe things have improved, because my experience was very positive. The receptionists that I spoke with on the phone and during my visit were very polite and helpful (my visit went the full hour). My PT Amanda was fantastic—seemed very knowledgeable, asked a lot of questions, and answered all of mine.
Regarding the survey, I didn't get one, but I am glad, because surveys are a waste of my time and I don't fill them out. —CharanRanganath
2008-06-20 12:00:59 My experience there was very positive. In fact, they were better than my doc, in terms of telling me specifically what muscles were affected, what preventative measures I could take, etc. My doc just prescribed muscle relaxers, asked almost no questions, clearly didn't care to help me solve the problem, said i'd probably injured myself and it'd 'go away eventually'. it didn't. after 3 visits to my MD and over 3 months of pain, with severe neck/shoulder pain/spasms, managed to procure referral.
was the very best thing, since they gave me simple tips on what caused/exacerbated the problem, etc etc. answered all my many questions. made me angry that my doc couldn't have taken the time to do that... really i'm surprised they have such bad reviews here. i think perhaps they are outdated?
And the apptmts lasted the entire time, the therapists never saw other patients while seeing me. Maybe they used to have poor service, but honestly I've been there about a dozen times, and each and every time, the desk folks were super nice, the therapists were excellent. I NEVER got a survey, so I'm not sure Jeff is talking about.... If i HAD gotten a survey it'd be 100% positive, I really recommend these folks, and their reasonably simple explanations and help, have made me realize I need to switch MD's.... —JessS
*well a quick look is that all the negative comments are from 2006, and all the positive ones from 2008. Perhaps they have had a better focus on customer service or something. —rocksanddirt
