Care Philosophy

Please note I have left my former neurology practice to return to practice general neurology with Saint Thomas Medical Partners-Neurology at the Saint Thomas West Campus with Dr. Brett Parker. I will begin with Dr. Parker's office on January 2, 2017. I want to apologize in advance for any inconveniences this delay may pose for some of my long time patients. However when a practitioner moves from one practice to another there is always the tedious task of moving the provider's identification numbers with Medicare and the lengthy process of credentialing with all the multiple insurance companies in order to be able to see patients in clinic. Thank you for your patience in this matter and please feel free to call my new office to schedule appointments. They are presenting creating my clinic grids for appointments and they will be happy to make appointments in the next week for January 2017. Looking forward to working with Dr. Parker and Saint Thomas Medical Partners and the patients againRead more

George Shwab IV Says:

 I strongly believe surveys are the key to helping indentifying practice issues that need fixing. In today's markets of advanced electronic media, many patients are checking out their potential new providers long before that first appointment. The surveys are pivotal in helping patients find good providers. A big thanks goes out to those folks who take the time to review their provider. It does make a difference in the long run!

I would definitely recommend George to a family member or friend. George takes the time needed to be with me to discuss my personal situation both from my side and his. He explains why he wants to do things the way he does. He listens to what I have to say.. ..and so many drs. today do not do that... they just tell you how things are going to be and not care about your own imput. He is easy to talk to. I'm trying to find him again as he left my neuro and I want him back! Where is he?

George has been instrumental in helping find the correct solution to relieving headaches brought on by TBI. When a medical emergency occurred he was readily available and more than willing to provide the necessary guidance to prevent tragedy. I am grateful for the professional relationship with George and Dr. Brandes' practice.

George Shwab IV says...

I have been a nurse practitioner since 1994 and worked in several disciplines of medicine including internal medicine, pain management, gastroenterology, along with neurosurgery and neurology for many years. I owe much of my clinical skills to the various precepting physicians over the many years of practice and their willingness to teach me the pearls of medicine. Prior to completing my masters in nursing, I have spent many years as a floor nurse, a charge nurse, and worked in the MICU as well as numerous summer jobs in local operating rooms and working in nursing homes while obtaining my BSN degree from Vanderbilt. I feel all of these various roles have given me a wonderful gift with respect to dealing with patients, families, and other clinicians. Also one incredible internal medicine doctor who I first worked with in private practice in Madison, TN. Dr. Pamela Brown taught me to seek answers and gather the data before ever considering a referral to a specialist. This approach has helped me over the years and big thank you for this clinical persistence is in order to this incredibly bright but no retired doctor.

I place high value in the 22 years of practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner but more importantly is the wisdom and clinical skills taught to me by each and every preceptoring physcian over the many years of my career. My gratitude for these individuals will never wane.

George Shwab IV says...

My clinical skills in produces such as Botox for Chronic Migraine and various other injections used to treat neurological conditions is based on the unselfish willingness of several gifted clinicians teaching the proper techniques over several disciplines of medicine such as neurosurgery, neurology, chronic pain management by outstanding interventional anesthiologists plus my years of experience in surgery as a former scrub technician in the early 1980's.
