Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Dr George understands how embarrassing and upsetting some medical issues can be and thank goodness for that. Had he been stand-offish, I would have been very uncomfortable. He spent all the time I needed to feel calmer and was very helpful. I referred him to a friend and she had the same impression. His staff was also very nice and polite.

Dr. George took all the time needed for me to understand my condition I have had for 7 years. He took me off 2 of my medicines that were not needed for the condition I have, All of his staff were pleasant and helpful. I only had to wait a few minutes to see the dr when arriving. My last gastro always was late as least 2 hours. I am very thankful to have a doctor that cares and is helping me now. I have recommended him to family and friends.

Dr. George is extremely compassionate. He has been my doctor for several years. He does not overbook. When I arrive at his office I usually only have to wait a few minutes to see the doctor. He always reviews my prescriptions from my other doctors. He will remain with me as long as it takes to make sure I understand my medical condition and all my options. I definitely recommend Doctor Garth George.

Great dr.but very rude staff. Also, nurse in the procedure room need to be retrained. Argued with a nurse that she need to expel the air out of the IV tubing before she hung another bag of IV fluid. She argued that it was a closed system and air could not possibly get in the tubing. Clearly there was air in the tubing. So I ha to shut off the IV myself and ask to see another RN to purge the air out. I am a Retired RN and saw this but not everyone would. Who else did this nurse pump air into?(
