Dr. Lear was great! He took his time with my examination and answered all my questions. This was my first time visiting an ENT so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My drive was about an hr long but worth it for great care. The staff was very friendly!

Dr. Lehr seen and treated my little girl and he and his staff were just wonderful. My daughter is 4 years old and usually does not do well with people she has never been around but they were all so friendly that she wanted to stay and read books in the waiting room. I will definitely tell everyone...more
