Elaina George, MD

Dr Elaina George is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Biology. She received her Masters degree in Medical Microbiology from Long Island University, and received her medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. Dr George completed her residency at Manhattan, EyeEar & Throat Hospital. She is on the advisory council of Project 21 black leadership network, an initiative of The National Center for Public Policy Research. She has published in several scientific journals and presented her research at national meetings.

Dr George specializes in minimally invasive ENT surgery for snoring, sleep apnea and sinus disease in both adults and children. Her philosophy is to treat the root cause of a disease to prevent or eradicate it instead of masking symptoms with medications that generally only manage the symptoms. Towards that end, her practice ranges from sublingual treatment for environmental and food allergy to the incorporation of scientifically proven natural therapies and products to provide an integrative approach to medicine.

She has found that an emphasis on wellness and prevention can improve patient care safely and effectively. The medical trend has been to prescribe more medicine, but despite this people have continued to become sicker. Dr George believes that an integrative approach in some cases can improve patient care and lead to a healthier life without the use of prolonged prescription medication and/or surgery. Dr George is affiliated with Piedmont Hospital and Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital.

She is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. She belongs to Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society, Phi Sigma Graduate Biological Honor Society, The National Registry of Who’s Who, Strathmore’s Who’s Who Lifetime Member, and she is a forensic medical consultant.
