What our patients are saying

I was at normal range of motion within a week of surgery. I took no opioids and I cried with gratitude at my first post-op visit.

I was very impressed with what a knowledgeable, kind and professional person Dr. Christopher George was. The hospital itself was also immaculately clean, friendly and well run. I highly recommend Valley View Hospital.
