Gets My Vote

Dr George is a fine doctor. I first saw him after a motorcycle accident and I wasn't sure if I was going to like him. He sure tells it like it is. No sugar coating. Over the years he has patched up me and my husband. He takes his time and explains everything. He is a very caring man.

PLATES AND SCREWS IN BACK

He actually diagnosed my husband with a broken back. My husband is now disabled and this happened to him at age 27. He is now 45. He has not been able to return to work since the surgery. How very sad. You have no idea how broke this has made our family and how different life is now. The doctor never even admits to his mistakes either. He says my husband asked for the surgery. My husband was totally healthy and they now know it was a pulled muscle only.

One Star

Was referred to him for surgery. Waited very long time to see him. Never touched me. Gave me ortho device said come back in six weeks. No improvement. Told me to go find someone else. Very condescending. Very bad experience; would NOT recommend.
