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?(

Awesome doctor. Gets an A in my book. Solved my problem in less than one week, after I looked for the answer for 5 years, and I am in the medical profession. Thank you, Dr George.

In over a year's time with pain, Dr. George never took the time to examine me. He seems to take the easy way out.
