Dr. George is Awesome great personality and up front about what he is going to do! He basically restored my back back to what it was when I was younger! His staff is very kind and helpful in everything I had to do! I would highly recommend Dr. George to anyone that wants to live again!!!

Dr. George was by surgeon to correct lower back problem. Excellent care, definitely recommend him.

Dr. George came highly recommended to me by my brother-in-law and my pain doctor, Dr. Hemmo Bosscher. I have been very happy with the treatment I've received and did not have to do the spinal fusion originally planned, instead opting for a less radical decompression procedure including discectomy and laminectomy. My surgery has relieved 99% of the sciatica that I have experienced since 2009. Dr. George and his staff have been professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate throughout the process.

Dr. George did a magnificent job on my back. I was in constant pain and he has relieved that pain and allowed me to get my life back. He was informed and it was easy to tell he was a knowledgeable man. But he also put that knowledge into words that were easy to understand. I knew what he was planning to do and he worked tirelessly on my surgery. I am in great debt to his skills and compassion for me. He is easy to talk to and I have been blessed by my experience with him.

Dr. George is an amazing, compassionate, experienced surgeon. I had 3 disks in my neck replaced and fused 6 months ago and I am doing very well. I tried the Laser surgery in Scottsdale, Arizona the year before and they really messed up my neck and my arm. I had 2 surgeries in 4 days on 2 difference levels. When I woke up from the second surgery, I could not raise my left arm past my waist for over 3 months and I still have some pain from that damage done to my nerve! It costs me $40,000.00

I was first introduced to Dr. George in 2013 by my Primary Care Physician when neck surgery was no longer an option. I came to in the recovery room and knew the surgery was a success---No Pain. Plus, I even gained some range of motion, and have remained pain free . I had to return to Dr. George in 2017 when sciatic nerve pain could no longer be controlled by medication. Dr. George operated on my lower back, fused two vertebrae, and sciatic nerve pain was history. Dr. George is wonderful!

Dr George did a wonderful job on my back surgery, I've had a very fast recovery with hardly any pain. I definitely recommend Dr George to my family and friends. His staff are very professional and friendly, they explain everything they want you to do in detail.

Dr. took time to explain everything in detail. All of his staff was knowledge about all parts of their jobs. They answered all my questions before I had time to ask. EXCELLENT CARE.
