I was dealing with acid reflux symptoms for about 2 years. I went to my primary doctor, he prescribed medication (Nexium), also I did Barium test to see if I had hiatal hernia or not. Barium test result came out and I was diagnosed with small hiatal hernia. My symptoms were really bad even though my hernia was small. Medication didn't work that much, and I literally was suffering with symptoms especially after each meal. I decided to go to a surgeon. I googled and I saw Dr. George got really good rating in Wichita. I scheduled an appointment with him. He did endoscopy as well to make sure that I had hiatal hernia and he suggested me to do surgery. I did agree to do surgery since my life was in hell every day. I am so happy with my surgery. BIG thanks to Dr. George. Now I can enjoy my everyday coffee. I would say after surgery diet was kind of tough but it was worth it. Dr. George is my hero, from my first appointment till surgery took just less than 2 month!

We met Dr George in April 2022; for a scheduled consulting. He told us what to expect in surgery and everything was in terms that we understood. He showed pictures and answered our questions. He was very personable. After surgery, he explained what he did and answer any questions we had. We were sent home with written info of what to expect and how to handle other concerns, dealing with the progress. It was very comforting to get this information. He is a very likable doctor that is very dedicated to his profession and the caring of his patients. We were very pleased with the outcome and his knowledge and expertise not only of him but his entire staff. Thank you, Dr. Austin George, you made a big difference in your patient’s life.

I had an extreme chronic cough and bad reflux, I was sent to a pulmonary doctor, an Ear nose and throat doctor, whom sent me to Dr George. I started this process in January of '21 and had my surgery January 12, '22. It took a year! I saw 4 Dr.'s. Doctor George was the only one to tell me the cough was due to a blood pressure medication I was taking, and had me switch. He fixed my hiatal hernia and I have had no problems since. I would absolutely recommend Dr George.

Dr George repaired a hernia for me and did a fantastic job. Less than a week after the procedure and I have less discomfort now than I did before the procedure. Dr George is thorough, patient, responsive, and kind. Very glad I chose him as my surgeon.

My primary physician recommended Dr. George for an initial consultation regarding my hernia. During this consultation, Dr. George asked permission to repair a hernia on the other side if detected during surgery. This, in fact, did happen and Dr. George successfully repaired the second hernia saving me a future surgery. While we felt a little rushed during this office visit, Dr. George provided the necessary time to address my questions and concerns in the hospital prior to surgery and during the follow up visit two weeks later. My recovery continues to progress smoothly. I would recommend Dr. George to anybody who needs hernia repair surgery.

Hiatal Hernia Repair
Dr. George explained the procedure he would perform in simple language, using a drawing for illustration, and patiently answered all my questions. He didn't pressure me into making a decision for surgery right then, and said I could think about it and let him know. The decision was clear, so surgery was scheduled. The procedure was done laparoscopically and robotically. I saw Dr. George yesterday, 1-27-22, for my two-week post-surgery evaluation, and I was able to tell him that I'm doing so well that I can almost -- almost -- forget I even had surgery. Dr. George is extremely knowledgeable, competent, caring, has a pleasant personality and, as I discovered at my two-week appointment, has a quick sense of humor. All these qualities go a long way with me, so I can highly recommend Dr. George to anyone seeking an outstanding surgeon.

I recently had Dr. George repair an umbilical hernia that had bothered me for some time. He had been highly recommended by friends of mine and I wasn't disappointed. The office visits before and after the procedure were pleasant and helpful and the operation itself went very smoothly (at least the parts I was awake for). I will definitely recommend Dr. George to others!

From the get-go I knew I was in good hands. I was comfortable throughout the process of pre-surgery consultation, the surgery itself and the post surgery follow up. Two thumbs up and I'd highly recommend Dr G for anyone ever in need of a Top Gun Surgeon!

Dr. George performed by bilateral hernia repair 2 months ago, the 1st major procedure for me. Everything has gone very well with minimal discomfort. Dr. George is caring, calm, very patient and took the time to explain the procedure and address my questions, and even personally returned my phone call at 9 pm one evening. I would definitely choose Dr. George again.

I recently had surgery performed by Dr. George, and I am completely satisfied with the experience. He is a skilled surgeon, which is obviously very important. But he is also a kind person who is very easy to communicate with, and he seems to genuinely care for his patients’ physical and mental well being. If I ever have to have surgery again, I want Dr. George as my surgeon!

Dr George is a meticulous, skilled, gifted surgeon. After my surgery, in spite of the usual ups and downs in recovery, I feel better than I've felt for years. I have a new lease on life thanks to him. I've got places to go and people to see..Thank you Dr. George for excellent care from beginning care and careful diagnosis, to the surgery itself and the follow up care.

Beware. Caution. Had a hernia repaired done. DrAustin George cut into my bladder. A urologist had to repair. Three and half hours under anesthesia. Four days of hospitalization. After released from hospital had to come back to emergency room with a urinary track infection. Dr Austin George caused nerve damage in my right groin. Which I’m still being treated for. Now Dr Austin George is billing me for follow up visits.

A few years ago Dr. George performed an umbilical hernia surgery on me and it healed up nicely and I had no compilations. In December of 2020 he also performed a more complicated hiatal hernia surgery on me and now a few weeks later I am feeling great with no complications at all. I can eat any thing I want and I never have any acid reflux. He is very good at what he does and I would highly recommend him.
