Efficient and thorough

I was very pleased with Dr George. He has an understanding manner and quite efficient in dealing with the problem. Wait time seems long however, I have been to other Dr's who have a waiting time extremely longer.

Four Stars

I did have a fairly long wait, but I was seeing another retina doctor who was much slower so I did not really mind. The staff was very nice and Dr. George was very through and took his time with me. The office was nice and I felt comfortable with the information and treatment I received.

First Bad Review I've Ever Given

If you enjoy extremely long waits, very little attention, absolute minimal/poor explanations regarding your condition and being treated borderline rudely, then you will like Dr. George. If not, I suggest you look around a bit more.
