Dr George came across as very knowledgeable, interested in explaining his diagnosis, willing to answer questions, and overall very capable. One of the best doctor interactions I’ve ever had.

It is very rare that I complete a review; however, my experience with Dr. George and his staff was one of the best I have had with any doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns, history, and examined each affected joint and then gave me a diagnosis, which no other doctor had been able to do until now. The swelling has already reduced in my fingers after months of being very swollen. Other doctors just took a cursory look at my hand prescribed medication, but not Dr. George!!!

I have never met a doctor that has more skill or more compassion for his patients as Dr. George. I love his expertise and love how he treats his patients. My mother was his patient before me. When she was in the hospital I went to visit & Dr. George was there checking on her. He saw my hands and said, “ I could help you.” That was in the 90’s. I see him regularly as my primary dr. A lot of specialists seen my mother & didn’t know what was wrong. Called Dr. George & he knew the problem & helped.

I have been a patient of Dr. George for over 10 years. He has treated our daughter for Lyme and me for tendonitis/arthritis. He is simply the best! While other doctors may rush you out the door, he is incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. He takes his time with every patient- getting to know them & to diagnose tough rheumatoid issues, presumably quite a challenge. I wouldn't go to another rheumatologist & wouldn't hesitate to refer friends and family to this gentle, yet aggressive, doctor

Dr. George is an excellent Doctor. I went from months of extreme pain to no pain in a matter of a week. I have been without pain for years. Because of Dr. George I can live a normal everyday life. He is a lifesaver!

My daughter was a patient of Dr. George for almost 3 years. Other than prescribing Naproxen for her JIA he did very little to help my daughter even in areas where I kept addressing concern. He completely overlooked a major sign of JIA which is TMJ, Jaw joint erosion. By the time her oral surgeon discovered it (which she noticed right away when she walked in the room) and confirmed with X-rays for her wisdom teeth extraction, she was already at stage 3 which requires surgery. Will never go back.

Dr. George is amazing. He is currently treating our 3 year old daughter with JIA (Juvenile Idopathic Arthritis). He is very patient with her and makes her as comfortable as possible while we are there. He takes time to answer all questions and explain the disease to us. Also, he is very adamant about what needs to be done as far as treatment, tests and follow up. Nothing is able to slip through the cracks.
