Amazing doctor and over all treatment experience. He’s explaining extremely well any situation along with the procedures and the expectations. I know that visiting an orthopedic surgeon is not a pleasant situation but he made it as pleasant as possible. I hope I don’t re-injure myself but if I do I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to come to Dr. George. Highly recommend.

Dr. George is very positive. His skill & confidence inspires a successful recovery. There are no surprises in any stages of the surgery or rehabilitation process. His staff and physical therapists are an extension of Dr George. They are very encouraging, yet practical. This is a great place for body and mind!!

I put off having my right knee replaced as I had heard so many negative remarks from so many people. Dr. George not only did a terrific job with the surgery (after 3 months you can barely see the scar) but he and his staff walked me through all the steps both before and after the surgery. I strongly would recommend Dr. George and will be having him replace my left knee in January.

I have had 2 knee replacements with Dr. George & KSF. I wouldn't think of using any other doctor/ facility. Dr. George is professional, personable, & I trust him completely with my medical needs. Joel & Anisa are wonderful staff members. All-in-all...the best you could ask for.

My appt was 8/13/18 at 1:45pm. With all online paperwork completed, I arrived for my appt at 1:30, checked in with the receptionist, completed 3 additional papers & returned them to the same receptionist. Then I waited in the very busy office until 2:55 at which time I told the same receptionist I had waited long enough & was leaving. She asked me "Had I checked in?" YES. "With who?" YOU. They finally found my file sitting on her desk. No apology, no nothing & 1 week later--still NOTHING!

Dr. George changed my life. My knee replacement surgeries make it possible for me to do anything I want to do...standing, walking, & squatting are no longer a problem for me. I walked all over Europe-up/down stairs with no pain. His easy going personality and genuine affection for his patients is very refreshing. It is obvious he loves what he does.

I had a major rotator cuff tear. Surgery was a breeze. I was very fortunate that physical therapy was nearly pain free. My recovery was ahead of schedule throughout the entire 16 weeks. I appreciate Dr. George’s skill in putting my shoulder back together.

MIKE DID MY RIGHT (NON-DOMINANT SIDE) SHOULDER, LIKE 8-10 YEARS AGO. THE RADIOLOGIST, IN HIS WRITTEN REPORT, SAID IT "WAS SHREDDED". DR GEORGE REPAIRED IT & DID AN EXEMPLARY JOB. IT'S STILL 100%. ON TUES PM MAY 1ST I TOOK A BAD FALL PLAYING PICKLEBALL ON A HARD COURT. WE CAME BACK FROM CABOS, MEXICO A DAY EARLY BECAUSE OF THE PAIN IN MY DOMINANT LEFT SHOULDER. NOT BEING ABLE TO SLEEP I WAS SO PLEASED THAT DR. GEORGE IS STILL IN THE AREA. I PRAY HE CAN HELP ME - AGAIN. LON FRANK

I saw Dr. George as a second opinion as my shoulder wasn't getting any better. He looked at my MRI results and stay and said there wasn't any way my shoulder would heal without surgery. I was scheduled that day for surgery which took place 2 weeks later. His office staff are all so very nice and he has a GREAT bedside manner. So thankful for Dr. George!!

Dr George is an excellent physician. He performed a correction to a botched rotator cuff surgery. On my initial visit, i explained by entire history & the difficult time I was having with previous Orthopaedic doctors & how the surgeon was ignoring me cuz he felt I didn't want to return to work. After reviewing a current MRI, Dr George determined that a 2nd surgery is necessary & he would be willing to do it. I was relieved & cried on his shoulder cuz I knew I would get my life back.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Dr. George and his entire team. Having the miss fortune to tear both ACL's at different times, Dr. George literally got me back up and running as quickly as possible. I highly recommend.

Excellent bedside manner. He listened intently, explains test results, explains surgical procedures and follow-up process. He operated on both a knee and shoulder for me. I have had phenomenal results. Dr. George made sure I understood the importance of PT. He was sure right about that. I have had zero pain resulting from surgeries (mild discomfort from PT). I would encourage Anyone considering surgery or suffering in pain to please speak with Dr. George. I gave Dr. George the highest rating

For years I struggled with debilitating knee pain. It became progressively worse and until I came to Dr. George, I thought my life was over. My total knee replacements were 11 week apart, and now I am able to do things I haven't been able to do for a long time. I appreciate Dr. George's approach to making sure there were no complications during my hospital stay and recovery. I just wish I had met him sooner!

My husband has been going to Dr. George for several years. He recommended I see him when I developed knee problems. My first visit with him was great. The problem is his office staff. Pre certification people do not return your calls. Then I called for the office manager, Donna. Left 2 messages for her and she has yet called me back. Called Mr. Berkowitz, the Administrative Manager over the office. He has not returned my call. This place has major staff issues! Ridiculous!
