Specialties

Dr. George W Holcomb III has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Beware of this Doctor

Beware of this doctor. He doesn't not listen to his patients and does not have time for them. During our one and only pre-op visit he spent less than 3 minutes with us and had his hand on the door handle the entire time. After there were issues with the surgery he was unavailable and we had to be seen by the nurse practitioner (who wasn't present at the surgery). He finally met with us (when forced to by the patient advocate) and was condescending and wasn't truthful about the facts. Beware - do not use this doctor.
