    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.
