Patient Comments (4)
Stuff happens and appointments run late. I'm willing to be understanding, but going over an hour and a quarter past the appointment time without pro-active communication indicates a practice that does this often, considers it normal, and doesn't think it's doing anything wrong. I never saw the doctor because I tapped out after over an hour of waiting, but I saw his waiting room and his somnolent staff. If I waited any longer he'd have to treat me for rigor mortis.

Dr. George deserves an award for going above and beyond. My daughter had an issue with a blind spot in her eye. I took her to the ER at about 9pm on a Friday to get a preliminary check of her eye. She was referred to Dr. George and coincidentally he was at his office treating another patient for an emergency situation. He agreed to see my daughter despite the late hour, it was after 10:30pm at this point. His examination was thorough and not rushed and he explained everything in detail.
