What People Say About Dr. George Stephens, MD

This is my second experience with Dr. Stephens. Years ago he did my back surgery and when I began having similar problems, I did not hesitate to return to him. He is very surgery-conservative, which is a good thing. He explained my problem, answered my questions, and presented me with my options. I had (2) spinal injections and am doing much better. When I need to do something in the future, I will again go to Dr. Stephens.

Extremely unhelpful. Spent very little time with me. Wife had same experience at this practice with another MD. Also, the office still doesn't have electronic medical records OR digital x-ray imaging.

Was sent to this doctor through workers care for a back injury and he spent almost the whole visit with his back to me just asking questions and when he did do an exam that consisted of how far could i bend forwards and backwards and when he looked at my back all he did was lightly press and ask if it hurt and that was the end but that was good enough for him tell insurance that i could return to full duty while i still have pain!

Beware of this Dr. Because he Is terrible about helping you if you need help with disability. Not only that but I had to get another Dr. That seen my problem and also he done surgery to repair where Stephens done, but this Dr. Stopped practice and I thought I would go back to Stephens again and he was not only rude rude rude with me but talked about the other dr. Like a dog. I will never step foot in his office again. If you've ever seen another dr or need help this man will not help you. beware
