Patient Comments (1)

in Libby, MT |
Dr. George went far beyond the realm of normalcy, to give me the needed treatment for my eyes. We started in February, and with three cases of the flue, and two cancer removal dates, we ended up, in May. I am very glad that I went to Dr. George, and I can't believe I can see so well now.
