Dr. George is probably the best doctors I've ever been to. She is highly detail oriented, listens amazingly well and explainseverything clearly. She takes the time to listen to her patients and make thoughtful recommendations and treatment plans. My new insurance does not cover her, so I tried other doctors, but months later here I am back with Dr. George because she truly is an awesome doctor with the experience and skill needed to get results for her patients.

My first impression of this office was nice. There was actually no one waiting so I knew I would be seen in a short period of time. When I first arrived there was no one at the reception area so I just signed in and sat down. Then a young lady came who was really nice. She was of a Latina (I say that cause I can't remember her name)she was very friendly. Once Dr George came I to see me she didn't seem all that warming, but as the appointment went on she seemed to warm up a bit. I can say she was very knowledgeable about what she was telling me of my medical issues and made sure she was thorough on what I needed to do to get better. I loved the fact that she stated after my 3 week treatment/regimine and medications, that she would put me on natural medication b/c she didn't believe in keeping patients medicated for long periods of time. Her office is on an app called My Plan and you can use this to also ask her questions and update you medical history and information, and check in, so that is convenient. Today is my second visit, and when I can in the receptionist was on a call so I just signed in and sat down. When she came to get me for my appt she wasn't friendly at all. This is a different receptionist from my first visit. She is a Caucasian lady, and she was just dry. No Good Morning or anything. Just called me and said sit in this room. I thought for a moment she was upset cause I was 10 mins late.. but who knows. Anyway once Dr George came in once again she is not a warming person up front just very to the point and professional. Which is cool. However you can ask her anything and she tells you straight which I like. So all in all I'll definitely recommend this office and Dr. But if your use to a more friendlier greeting then you're not gonna get it here, so don't let that put you off. Dr. George is still a good Doctor.

I am so grateful to have found Dr. George. I chose to be seen by her based on her very high reviews online and now I am happy to add to that long list. She took so much time with me and her assessment was so thorough. I left feeling very cared for and with a great plan of care for treatment. She was the perfect amount of professional and down to earth. Very easy to talk to, a great listener, and truly in the field for all the right reasons. She also was very mindful of not doing anything unnecessary that would increase the cost of care but by no means took any shortcuts. My highest recommendation goes to her!!

I’m a healthcare provider myself, 26 years in practice. I can say she is one of the best physicians I’ve ever been to. She took her time with me. Dr George explained everything she was doing and why. I felt truly cared for with her. I can’t recommend her more highly; she exceeded all of my expectations.

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 doctors just 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.

She is Great! Informative to the point. Diagnosed a problem that went undetected in prior visit to my last ENT Doctor. She was extremely informative to my case situation and is treated a problem I have been experiencing for too long. Will recommend her to anyone in need of an ENT and I am going to continue treatment with her. Highly recommended!

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, and my 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 office because 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. The other 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.
