The Great Doctor

My wife and I both have had surgeries(Her back, My neck) and we were very happy with the results. We both liked the way Dr. George and his assistants explained everything to us. They have all the equipment right at the clinic to diagnose your problem and a hospital for the treatment. The office staff were friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for more! Thanks You to Dr. George and all his staff at Grace Clinic.

Excellant surgeon

I strongly recommend Dr. Richard George. Dr. George performed spine surgery that eliminated the pain that I had constantly for 24 months. Spinal stenosis and bulging discs caused pain walking, sitting, and resting in bed. I leaned to one side while walking and used a grocery cart for support as I shopped. I could not walk more than 15 minutes without pain. I was pain-free when I awoke from the surgery and I have had no pain in the two months since the surgery. My recovery was quick. Dr. George is very kind and courteous. He listened patiently to my symptoms and answered all my questions in a clear and understandable way. The surgery he performed has allowed me to resume normal activities in my life.

Eminently pleased

Let's start out with the fact that I had back surgery. From there, everything was uphill. I went to my primary care physician complaining of leg pain. He told me it could be a, b, c or I might need back surgery. After several doctors I ended up under a knife at the hands of Dr. Richard George. I cannot adequately put into words how pleased I am with the results and the care given by Dr. George, his staff and the staff at Grace Medical All pain is gone and I am back where I was pre-leg pain.
