What People Say About Dr. George Pierson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
We were absolutely satisfied with our appointment with Dr. Pierson. As we have come to expect he is never in a hurry and really takes time to listen. On this visit we discussed meds and changes were made. Dr. Pieson is very personable and more importantly very informed. His staff compliments this practice. We were thrilled when the doctors from Olathe chose to relocate to this practice as we had previously used this group. Both our doctors migrated here and that is comforting to know that the highest level of care and expertise is now at our choice of hospitals. The new offices are beautiful and comfortable. although we did not get to sit long in the well appointed waiting room as our appointments are always on time. The patient rooms are bigger and each room has a sofa so that more than one family member can be in the room. Thank you Dr. Pierson for being an example of what a caring doctor should be.

Dr Pierson and his whole team were extremely friendly and helpful. Very interactive. Dr Pierson made me feel very comfortable with his demeanor and conversation... humor and answering all my questions... even asking me if I had more questions. He even said, "You're going to live forever!" Now that's what every person wants to hear from their Dr. Highly recommend!

Dr Pierson has been my cardiologist for the past 14 years. He was my fathers cardiologist also for many years. I have the utmost trust in him and would recommend him to anyone seeking a heart specialist. He is a caring and compassionate doctor that really cares about his patients and takes the time with them to determine how they are feeling.

Dr. Pierson has been my cardiologist since my first MI in 2008. He’s made himself accessible whenever I’ve needed medical treatment and/or advice. Through two open heart surgeries, atrial fibrillations, etc. he’s been there for me. No pun intended but I’m trusting him with my life.
