Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. George "I am a dual trained spinal surgeon with both neurosurgical and orthopedic spinal training. This allows me to deliver unique, comprehensive spinal care. I believe that surgery is in general reserved for cases that have failed other non-operative treatments, however when it is needed I always try to do it using minimally invasive techniques. I believe in spending time with my patients and not rushing the visit."

Patient Comments (7)
Left Dr George ‘s office feeling like a stupid fool for wasting his time. He did not tell me about any options since surgery (spine fusion) may be too drastic for my condition; we both agreed on that but then says that my arm will continue to shrink and offers no solution, like something minimally noninvasive. Smug smile changing to odd condescending grimaces to let me know I was wasting his time.

I had 2 surgeries with Dr. George and I was very happy with the results from both surgeries. My first surgery was on 1-17-16 and the second was on 8-4-17 both different injuries. He is very professional as well as his staff. Thank you for everything. I make sure to refer Dr. George to family and friends.

Exceptional doctor and staff. I just had spinal fusion surgery and I’ve never felt better! He cares, doesn’t rush you and is EXTREMELY honest and to the point. Highly recommend.

0% chance. My elderly mother has to undergo a very complicated surgery. She is very nervous. Instead of being treated with compassion, she had to deal with angry staff members who never followed through with simple tasks like returning a phone call. I've worked with doctors for over 20 years & have never seen such unprofessionalism. Dr George himself is very knowledgeable but displays the stereotypical bedside manner of a surgeon - get 'em & 'out. Do yourself a favor, find another surgeon.

He did my surgery 2 1/2 years ago and I still am in pain.I go back to see him now but get a very unprofessional attitude because geico no fault did not pay him.First of all if that's true how is that my fault and you botched my surgery where I'm still in pain,it even took me 18 months after the surgery to even feel somewhat normal and now I still hav numbness in my same arm,a pinched nerve my neck still hurts where you did surgery and will crack on its own.Staff members have attitudes,ridiculous
I had a PLIF done 4 years ago at the hospital for special surgery. For the last 3 years I have been going doctor to doctor for opinions . Dr. George by far is the kindest most considerate Doctor I have come across. He takes his time with you and actually treats you like a person instead of a number. I wish I would of met him before I did my first surgery.
