What People Say About Dr. George Hines, MD
Reply Flag
my dad was rushed to the ER with an abdominal aorta aneurysm that was hemorrhaging, he did the emergency surgery on him and he was straight forward with us and told us the chances of what could happen but at the same time showed so much compassion and I really trusted him. He pulled through the surgery and we couldn't be more thankful to Dr Hines and to Winthrop, the staff was outstanding in the ICU and when he was moved to a regular room,all the nurses, PA's everyone was great.

About Me

Care Philosophy

As a vascular surgeon, I discuss all available options with patients and recommend what I believe to be the best treatment. In the end, however, it is up to the patient to make an informed decision as to what is best for him/her. It is then up to me to perform the procedure in the most thoughtful, careful, and up-to-date manner.
