First Visit. Office was very busy but to my surprise ( based upon many other doctor appointments.) I was seen within 10 to 15 minutes. Dr George was most pleasant and professional. I am 68 and have been suffering many monthsfrom a tennis related right shoulder rotator cuff injury. He recommended my first cortisone injection in that shoulder which was painlessly administered by his PA. Along with a prescription strength anti-inflammatory preliminary results (2 days) are favorable though I feel it will take additional time and exercise to ensure it is only inflation and not a tear. Very happy with with approach taken.
