November 30, 2013

With Heather I felt as if she saw what I was going through but all she said was try some allergy medicine when I had explained to the medical assistant that allergy medication did not do much. I am glad I tried another doctor for my follow up who gave me the exact reasoning and tried to help more.

November 20, 2013

This appoinment was the best at this clinic. Thank you Heather George.

October 18, 2013

Ms. George is an outstanding addition to the U0fU Clinic in Stansbury Park. So glad you brought her on board!

October 07, 2013

This was my first time seeing Heather George and I thought she was great and will use her in the future

October 03, 2013

Heather George is quite possibly the most sincerely empathetic healthcare provider I have had throughout my entire adult life! She's been blessed with this empathetic nature and takes it one step beyond...she takes the time to discuss possible causes, not just symptom management. I highly recommend her.

September 02, 2013

Heather took wonderful care of me. Plan on having her be my regular doctor/ pa.

August 26, 2013

Very informative and information was geared to my age which was really nice!

August 12, 2013

I was very happy with Heather. I have been moving from doctor to doctor because either the doctor is too arrogant to explain things, too busy to take the time to listen, or the clinic is not adequately staffed to meet my needs. Heather took the time to address my needs, asked many questions about my needs, and spent time with me with out being rushed. The clinic is well-staffed and well-equipped. I didn't have any major issues but needed to established a relationship with the clinic and get prescriptions refilled.
