“Best rheumatologist ever! I have been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis twice now. He figured it out immediately without me even telling him that. The longer wait is more than worth it!! You will see a Doctor who is very knowledgeable, very kind and caring, and enjoys a challenge since I have a couple other painful health issues going on. I went from my worst Dr. appt ever to the best Dr appt ever with Dr. George. Dr. George is such an answer to prayer and has a real desire to help others. I can’t thank him enough!"

"Dr. George and his staff are the best team of medical professionals I have interacted with, and I've been seeing rheumatologist teams since 2007. Dr. George communicates openly and honestly, and does not condescend to his patients. He explains all details of conditions, symptoms, medications, side effects, and lab results clearly and in a way anyone can understand, answering any and all questions you might have. He and his team assist with finding pharmacies that offer prescribed medications with considerations for each individual's budget and insurance coverage limitations. He is a proponent of vitamins, natural supplements such as turmeric, anti inflammatory diets, and a holistic approach to overall health in support of medical treatment plans. I feel lucky to have found care that I can trust while I navigate my auto-immune health journey."
