Proudly Presenting Alpharetta’s Premier Team
Dr. Erin George
Dr. George grew up in a northwest suburb of Chicago. She completed her undergraduate degree at The University of Illinois and obtained her DVM from Purdue University College of Veterinarian Medicine. Dr. George worked at a small animal general practice in Illinois for 6.5 years before moving to Georgia to be closer to family. She opened Edgewater Animal Hospital in August 2022 with the vision of improving patient care, client education, and the veterinary clinic workplace. Dr. George enjoys all aspects of general practice, but her special interests include oncology, surgery, and preventative medicine.
