What can I say about a man that Saved MY Life. I would be in a grave right now if not for this man. He is a very experienced cardiologist and has saved many more lives other than mine. Its almost a daily thing for him. He takes the time to care for his patients and is the same if in the office or you meet him in Lowes. If you wait a little longer its because he is saving someone. I cannot thank Dr George enough. He is the best by far. He deserves a 25 out of 5 on this rating.
