James E. George, MD
"What I enjoy most about ophthalmology is being able to help patients attain the best vision possible. I listen intently to each of my patients’ concerns, and then carefully examine them to determine the cause. I clearly explain the best options to correct the problem."

He then obtained his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and completed his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Minnesota, where he received the Harry Plotke, MD award given to the most outstanding senior resident.
