George Shwab, FNP-BC has done a great job helping me with a sever concussion. He is very patient and thorough in his diagnosis. He advised me to take things slow, what to do, and what not to do. More over, he drew diagrams to help me understand what was and is going on with my brain. I trust him with the care for concussions.

I have searched the nations best medical teams from the highest regarded medical centers all over the US. There are many great practices I have visited. However, what I didn't know is right in my backyard was the sharpest, most discerning nurse practitioner I ever met. George Shwab from the first visit demonstrated his genuine concern for my care. My condition was not unfamiliar to his vast knowledge in Parkinsons syndrome patients! He knows what he is doing! I trust his advice. It works!

Unbelievably knowledgeable and caring. I have seen a neurologist for over 20 years and have never felt as listened to or cared for as I am with Mr. Shwab. He was 100% prepared for my first visit and has an uncanny memory. His wealth of knowledge in almost every facet of medicine is incredibly impressive. I am in health care as well. I started my own practice so people would again truly matter. To provide quality not guantity. Mr. Shwab truly cares and is an excellent provider. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

George Shwab is one of the best nurse practitioners/physician's assistant that I have had in all of my years dealing with MS, and a combination of neurological conditions. He always listens and responds with answers to any question that I have. He doesn't rush through my office visits and is very thorough because he really does care. That is very important to me. I would recommend him to ANYBODY seeking to find someone that is knowledgeable in the neuro field.

My experience with George Shwab was amazing. His compassion for my issue was evident throughout the whole visit. He answered all of my questions and gave me enough information about my issue that I was very well educated by end of my visit. I will definitely go back to see him.

I am thankful to have the opportunity to share my experience as George's patient. I work hard to stay healthy and manage my cervical issues with weight management, exercise, etc... However, that simply doesn't always work. He is respectful of my view of healthcare, but makes sure I completely understand my diagnosis, potential risk, and all available options. I couldn't be happier or trust his judgement more.

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.
