New York, NY |
Dr. George is an excellent clinician with a calm and comforting demeanor. His pleasant, straight forward, informative approach with patients is ideal.
New York, NY |
Dr. George is just one of those Dr.'s you feel safe with. He's super knowledgeable on all aspects of IBD and he is extremely thorough. Also great bedside manner.
Tenafly, NJ |
Dr George is great and I love working with him. He helped me find the right combination of medications to keep me in a stable remission. However, Dr George's office is terrible. They are rude, unhelpful, and incompetent. I have dealt with them for about 5 years and they have not gotten better. If you want to know that your Dr will be there for you when you need him, do not work with this office - they will not help you.
Stamford, CT |
I have a frustrating and complicated medical history. Dr. George always manages to consider the whole picture and make decisions that will benefit my overall health, not merely the issue in his specialty. I have been very sick and literally credit him with saving my life. I no longer live locally and travel into Manhattan just to see him. I will never switch to another doctor.
