Dr. George is the best physician I have ever been to, He is the best in the south. He saved my hand when other doctors wanted to cut it off. The office people are very courteous; keep up the good work!
I have seen Dr. George for several years for my arthritic hands. He is a brilliant surgeon who discussed all available treatment options with me. Dr. George is also the nicest doctor you may ever meet. The office offers a relaxing ambience and staff addresses all care needs. I had surgery 2 months ago and the team at the therapy center got me back to full range of motion and strength. Happy me!
I broke my wrist which later required surgery. From the first visit with Dr. George I was extremely impressed with him and the rest of the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helped me through the entire process from surgery to therapy. I can't thank them enough for helping me recover and be so patient and kind. THANK YOU!
