She received her post-graduate training in Toronto at St. Mary’s Hospital and has practiced in both the United States and Canada. Dr. George has spent over 25 years working in the area of Emergency and Urgent care medicine where she observed the long-term consequences of poor lifestyle choices, oversight in management, inadequate patient education and difficult to treat conditions. She realized that her expertise and passion could make a real impact on her patient’s health before irreversible damage has occurred. Since then she has focused exclusively on applying a whole system approach of functional and integrative medicine to her practice. Dr. George believes strongly that patients make better choices about their health when they understand all the relevant factors that lead to their disease.
