He won't just write you a prescription and say, "see ya next month", Dr. George and his staff will be there for you every step of the way to offer helpful advice, answer questions, and ultimately help guide you to make the right decision about your health care.

Dr. George is by far the best physician I have ever had. He takes the time to really get to know his patients and answers every question you have. I could go on and on about his abilities. I can honestly say I would never go to anyone else but him. I drive about an hour once every two weeks just to see him. He is very special.
