Dr. George's Care Philosophy

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.

West Islip, NY |
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.
