“Dr Peter George has been the epitome of the most tentative, thorough, friendly and accommodating professional I have gad the pleasure of visiting these past few months. From my first video consultation with him, he put me at ease and given my plans to travel asap, he managed to fit me on the same day for a CT scan. He very also kindly accommodated seeing me at the end of the day on a Friday evening after his evening clinic finished to discuss his initial findings and to see me in person. Further to this, he then prioritised results/reports over a weekend and contacted me via calls, voicemails and messages to provide me updates on the results and to ensure I had not booked my flights until wr had more clarity. On a Sunday whilst not working, he then placed some requests for some new tests to double check. I was in again on the Monday and having had my blood tests, lung function and echocardiogram, was then seen in person on Monday evening. He was very transparent throughout and very conscious of my personal situation and my eagerness to fly if my results permitted and my health was not impacted. Whilst we are still investigating and this will be a slight trial by error treatment, I have complete confidence in Dr Peter George’s assessment of me and his treatment plan for me. “

    Long COVID
    I am suffering for close to 12 months with Long Covid. Dr George carefully listened with genuine care to my LC journey and dibilitating symptoms. He was knowledgable about LC and immediately reviewed my many test results over the last year holistically. Most importantly, he validated my symptoms and helped me understand why my body had reacted in the way it had. He created a plan for recovery (involving me seeing another Consultant @Cromwell), as well as further tests. I would happily recommend Dr George for anyone seeking respiratory or Long Covid symptoms.

    Dr George was very pleasant to speak with. His explanations were extremely clear and he spent time discussing my experience with my breathing problems over the couple of years. Very though. I was delighted that he has been able to identify what has been causing my symptoms and I am now on the pathway for diagnosis and treatment. I was really impressed by the speed is his feedback after my zoom calls. Also, Patricia his secretary was very helpful and again very efficient. Thank you to both for a great experience.

    Dr George was very polite, he listened to my concerns, not really much of an explanation as to what my problems could be, but more of what we need to do to rule out certain issues to move forward. I must admit the next day I had received an email showing me a referral letter he had passed on to my doctor, time will tell to see what the next stage is. Hopefully we keep in touch to sort out my issues . Happy so far . Thank you Dr George . Also I have to mention Dr George’s PA, Patricia Granahan, what a breathe of fresh air when I spoke to her on the phone, very nice and pleasant and extremely helpful, we need more people like her . Thanks Patricia
