Everyone has been really nice and helpful. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and I think I pretty well knew what to expect. I am very happy with the outcome of my cataract surgery. I have 20/20 vision in both eyes!

I never have more than a 15 minute wait to see Dr. George. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and I now have 20/20 vision. He did a great job. It's so nice to be able to see all the signs when I'm driving. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. George to anyone.
