Skilled physician with a bad bedside manner and no listening skills. He acts as if he is on an elevated level and patients and family are at a lower level. He states: I don’t have time for you, he actually said that! No doctor should ever say that. 0 stars for a caring or compassion.

Dr Bier is the BEST! He has taken care of my husband through cardiovascular disease + Triple bypass surgery. He really cares about his patients and their families. We would wholeheartedly recommend him. He communicates very well to his patients + is very thorough + is just a very nice guy
