I was referred by 2 Dr's because of DR George's supposed competence, as a neurosurgeon. Boy was I wrong! He comes into the room after a week of testing and tells me my case is unusual, I ask Why? He proceeds to tell me, I've got nothing wrong with me. I know for a fact I've got 3 herniated Cervical disks C-456. I am in constant pain, from my neck to my finger tips, both sides. I cant even sign my name anymore. My hands shake, etc etc. I went back to my pain mgmt DR. I proceeded to tell him everything Dr George told me. Let's just say he was more than upset. I was referred out to another Neurosurgeon, who has received all my imagining, and will accept me as a patient. Funny thing, last week I received a letter from Grace Clinic, DR George. He is no longer going to practice medicine/surgeon, due to a neurologic disorder. KARMA!

I went to see Dr. George after years of back pain and the last 10 months with so much pain I had to use a cane at some time and could not even sit long enough to go to Sunday School and church. After seeing Dr. George I had a cyst removed and disc clean out. I can walk without pain for the first time in I don't know when. Dr George and his staff are so caring and understanding. They re very thorough in explaining the procedure and the instructions for after surgery. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing surgery. He will even say a prayer for you, which I think is the best thing. Norma Kilgore, Lubbock, Tx. - Oct 2, 2019.

Not only is Dr. George an outstanding physician/surgeon, but he is also an outstanding person. Very caring of his patients' needs and concerns. He was openly willing to answer any and all questions. He also offered information that we didn't even know to ask since it was our first experience with back surgery. Since completing the surgery, I have been pain free for the first time in years.

I have so much less pain than I had before surgery. I have virtually no pain. I had a decompression and fusion surgery and 27 hours later I walked out of the hospital under my own power. My recovery is going very well. I'm extremely pleased with my outcome.

As an ag pilot I found myself with a decision to make due to my ruptured disc. Getting out of the plane was difficult, as this was going to be income lost for my family but turned out to be the best decision I have made. Dr. George and his staff not only eased all of my back pain but had me flying again in weeks after the surgery, I am now able to enjoy my job and the gorgeous scenery this area has. Thank you Dr. George and Staff!

Dr. George has established a practice of excellence which includes his entire staff. Each person thoroughly explained procedures and expectations and put me at ease. I recently had an ACDH to correct a problem in my neck. Dr. George, Sixtus, Bertrand, the nurses and office staff were so pleasant and knowledgeable before and after surgery. I was pleased to find that I had increased strength and improved balance within 6 hours of surgery. There is no one better. I highly recommend Dr. George.

easy to understand and he explains everything very thoroughly. He is careful to answer all questions. He gave me literature which was very helpful. He is conservative and does what is best for me. Most of my pain is gone and I am starting therapy.

I was referred to Dr. George with a ruptured disc with severe pain and numbness. At my initial visit, it was determined that I needed surgery. I was immediately scheduled within a few days. Dr. George performed the surgery and I instantly noticed relief and the numbness was gone. I appreciated the professionalism and skill from him and his office. I would definitely refer my family and friends.

When I came to Dr George my pain level was a 12. I had a spinal fusion of L4-5 L5-S1. The day after surgery my pain level was a 8. By the end of the second week post surgery my pain level was a 4-5. Dr George and his staff are always very professional, compassionate and timely at all times. I would highly recommend Dr George to anyone having back issues. He is truly amazing. I am now pain free. I can honestly say I trust Dr George completely.

Dr George was so very kind and caring in his treatment for me......he took the time to explain everything to me so that I understood all of my procedures/surgical treatments..... he took the time I needed to make me feel welcome and comfortable when I was not feeling good at all and I really appreciate him.

I have had back problems for over ten years and the doctor I had in San Angelo just kept stringing me along. Finally I heard of Dr, George in Lubbock, TX. He did my surgery and was very good and the surgery was a total success! No more pain after ten years! I highly recommend Dr. George to everyone who has back problems! He is good with patients and highly skilled. Don't wait! Do it!

Have had excellent care while under his care. I was able to get in for a quick consult when my incision healing was in question. I have had not difficulty in my recovery. I would gladly refer him to my family and friends. exc
