Dr. George was incredibly thorough! It was clear that she’s interested in getting to the root of the problem . She doesn’t just want to treat the symptoms. And best of all, she LISTENS. I cannot tell you how many doctorsjust rush you out of their office without really hearing your concerns. I feel like I am in good hands and will continue to see her for my ENT health concerns.

I came to the office as a first-time patient in SO much pain. Dr. George made me feel heard, while working quickly to diagnoses and address my problem. I'd previously seen an Urgent Care doctor, but his treatment hadn't succeeded, andmy severe pain continued all weekend. After seeing Dr. George, I have some relief for the first time in days. So thankful.

Dr. Elaina was, as always, a great blessing to me. I have a lot of problems because of allergies and her advice and years of study have been of great benefit to me. Actually, I seldom find myself in her officebecause she took such care in diagnosing my main problems at my first visit, and then set me up with a course of action to be followed. But when new problems surface, I am so thankful to be able to come in and "take a refresher" course. I have in the past, and will continue in the future to recommend this excellent Doctor!

Wow. Dr. George was absolutely amazing. She is the 3rd ENT I have seen since I moved to Atlanta almost 9 years ago, and it is safe to say I will not be seeing anyone but her from now on. Theother doctors gave me bad information and basically just told me I would have to suffer. Dr. George refused to accept that and is working with me to get me in better health.

Dr. George is a very seasoned and expert physician. I had been seeing another doctor for 3 years without a diagnosis, and Dr. George figured it out in less than 10 min through obtaining good background. I have not even hadto go back - and that was all during a consultation visit! Dr. George is definitely worth seeing.

I love Dr. George. I am so glad that my sister referred me to her years ago, or I will still be suffering with chronic sinus infections. She is the only doctor out of probably 15 or 20 ENT's that Ihave seen over the years that ever used a scope to look in my sinuses. Did I say I loved Dr. George ? !

Elaina George is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an ENT. I had a procedure done by her to open up my sinuses and shave a bone spur off of my nose andshe was awesome. No pain after she numbed me up and zero swelling.
