Advanced training, technical skill and state of the art equipment are all indispensable, but they cannot replace importance of the personal touch. The doctor patient relationship is the foundation of good medicine. Dr George performs all patient examinations. She believes her most important tool is the ability to listen to her patient. He or she knows their body better than anyone, and the answer to their problem is often found by taking the time to listen to what he/she has to say. We believe that each patient is special and deserves individual attention and solutions. All options will be presented and when possible an approach to solve the underlying problem instead of treating the symptom will be presented. Towards that end Wellness and holistic treatments will be offered when possible to prevent disease.
