What People Say About Dr. George Miz, MD
Reply
I saw Doc Miz twice for herniated discs with bone spurs in my neck. He did a wonderful job replacing the discs and cleaning the bone spurs and with seeing him in his office. I am very pleased that he made such a small cut in my neck and then again in the same scar from the first one for the second one, that I have a very small scar. He is very good at what he does. I don’t have any problems with doc Miz and I would recommend him to anyone

Dr. Miz diagnosed me a herniated disk and I had a micro-dysectomy and then a spinal fusion in my L4-L5, in 2010-2011. I always felt that he was quick to respond and react with my questions and concerns. I felt comfortable with him that he was treating me well and although I was very skeptical that the spinal fusion would ever give me a 'normal life' he assured me that one day I would be pain free and he was right. I am as normal today as I was at 20. I would highly recommend him.
