This man is incredible. Dr. George went out of his way to help me with a situation where most other doctors would probably not have. He was so helpful and kind when I was stressed out. I can’t tell you how hard it is to get a doctor who is professional and knowledgeable, but also has great bedside manners with their patients. Dr. George has all those characteristics. I’ve had cancer twice, and I can tell you from experience that Dr. George and his staff truly care about their patients.
Dr. George literally saved my life. He took excellent care of me, and now when I have my checkups, we talk about his children and my grandchildren. I didn’t have any grandchildren when I was diagnosed. Now, eight years later, I have four grandchildren, and every single day is a blessing. I owe many of those blessings to Dr. George.
No one wants to hear the “C-word”, and when you hear it, the fear that it brings is hard to hide. Dr. George has been patient, kind, understanding, honest, and straightforward every step of the way as I have navigated my way through my fight against Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer. He’s researched, collaborated, discussed, and carefully weighed every drug I have taken to ensure that my cancer is kept under control and that I am able to function and enjoy life as much as I can. I know Dr. George understands how much my treatments’ success means. He’s not just a doctor, he’s a parent. We want to see our kids grow up. Dr. George is an excellent oncologist. I trust him with my life!
Dr. George has been my oncologist since 2012. He is a great doctor who takes time with me to answer all my questions and helps me make those very important decisions that have to be made.
Dr. George took me from stage IV cancer to remission. He was always there with anything that I was going through. Even when I had other issues and other doctors, Dr. George was always there checking on me.
