I guess I'll have to right down the phone number of Mercy Flight before I go out on a bike ride again.

the heading should be "being CEO of URMC may have saved his life"...i think anyone can self-diagnose not being able to feel their legs as possible spinal injury...not everyone can say "call stong and tell them the guy who signs their paychecks is coming, prepare to get to work"

Jesus, "huffy" and "jason" you really have to get a life!! He was not airlifted because he is the CEO, MORONS!! He was airlifted because he is paralyzed, at least temporarily- AND YOU WOULD'VE BEEN AIRLIFTED TOO!!!! I am a former emergency dept. nurse, at Strong, and believe me, I never saw anyone arrive by chopper that had had to prove their socio-economic status before they were boarded. I really feel sorry for bitter losers like you two! Would you like to change places with this man?????

I agree with you! No need to have money to fly just a life threatening injury. He was given the same treatment EVERYONE ELSE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED. And need I say, excellent treatment like everyone else would have received.

Way to go: Emergency Air Flight. Another job well done.

P.S. Dr. Burke is Brilliant. He is also capable of diagnosing his own injury.We love you Dr. Burk! get well soon.

Dr. Burk is always helping everyone else with his expertise as a doctor.

We in the Monroe County community wish you God speed. Dr. Burk is a good man.

I don't work in the medical field, But I do know people with spinal cord injuries that have been helped by this man as well as the mercy flight crews and the hospitals.

I can only say that Dr. Burke has done remarkable work in the County of Monroe and he should be commended for his work and research not just for being a good leader.

I don't need to suck up to people who are "down in the trenchs helping make a difference". They get my earned RESPECT!
