Dr. Naveen George is my favorite provider on my care team. He seemed genuinely excited about my progress and seemed to actually care about my condition improving. He always makes me feel like I am his most important patient and even though the office is a long drive for me, he and his office staff make it worth it for me. Everyone in the office seems to enjoy their jobs, and always make me feel safe and welcome.

*** and Dr. George were absolutely wonderful during, and after, my visit. They were both kind, calming, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable. Dr. George seems to truly be an expert in neurology especially migraines/headaches, and talked to me/treated with respect and understanding, explained things in a way I could understand, and answered all of my questions. I never felt like he was rushing or bothered or in a hurry to get to the next patient. The front desk staff was also very kind. I appreciate everyone I encountered on this visit, you all made a pleasant visit for me and gave me hope on my migraine journey! Thank you! :)

I appreciated the amount of time the doctor spent with me for my appointment. He was knowledgeable and attentive to answer all of my prepared questions. He gave me good ways to improve the way I take my migraine medication and also prescribed a new, non-medication procedure to try. Even though I had to wait 3 months to get the appointment, the doctor did spend time explaining things to me. He confirmed some thoughts I had about migraines, and also gave me new information. Overall, it was a great experience.

Dr. George is an awesome doctor! The day of my visit there was a student intern doc and she came in the room first got all my information and what was going on. She did all the neurological exams. She was very patient with me as I'm ***! She then went and talked to Dr. George and they both came back in room. Dr. George listened to everything I had to say and never rushed me! After listening to my complex medical life he put a plan of action to help resolve current medical issue saw him for! At the end of my appointment I asked him if he would write down the meds he talked about to run by my *** Surgeon and I would get back to him if those meds were safe for me and no interference to my ***e typed it out and came back and repeated it while pointing to words! He then walked us up to the front and told the receptionist that I was deaf and when I was to come back for a ***. All of that means a lot to me as being deaf and I take that into consideration when choosing to keep a doctor. Thank you Dr. George and to your student for making my appointment go smooth, working with my deafness and reduce any stress!!!!!

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
