Dr. Sears is the finest physician I have encountered in my 68 years. He performed a shoulder replacement on me last year. His genuine concern for my well-being shows at every appointment. He is never rushed and spends as much time with me as is necessary. He explains everything in a way that I understand, never getting frustrated with my many questions and sometimes lack of understanding! He asks many questions. His support staff is amazing. Nothing falls thru the cracks in his office!

Dr Sears was referred by a colleague after I had a fall with a severely displaced humeral fracture and shoulder dislocation. His skill in OR x 2 operations saved my arm. Very happy with reverse shoulder replacement. Great office staff. I am a RN.

Last year I was in a ski accident right before Thanksgiving. I shattered my Clavicle in 5+ places, and went to several doctors for opinions. Dr. Sears explained my options clearly and walked me through surgery and post-op expectations with a timeframe that proved to be accurate. He gives his time/full attention, and he sat with me until all of my questions were answered during every appointment. He's the most personable and professional doctor I have ever been to, I recommend him to everyone.

Awesome experience. My wife was due to deliver our daughter within a month of destroying my collarbone in an ATV accident. Dr. Sears got me in for surgery within days and did such a good job that I am already good to hold baby when she gets here. I was nervous about going in to surgery, but after some cursory research my wife and I were put at ease. Among the top of his class, specializing in precisely what I needed and right at 10 yrs of experience - Dr. Sears is at the top of his game.

Dr. Sears is a very competent, thorough surgeon! I felt very reassured, after his explanation of the reversal shoulder surgery and recovery. He has a very nice mannerism and is concerned about his patient's well being!

Dr. Sears performed a revision of my ulnar nerve transposition and repairs to my rotator cuff and biceps tendon. From our first meeting and through recovery, he really listened, patiently answered my questions and made me feel relaxed. His surgical skills are top notch. My shoulder feels 100 percent better. Though I am still recovering from the ulnar nerve revision, I do feel significant improvement. The surgeon who did the first surgery told me I would never heal. Dr Sears proved him wrong!

I had an unexplained pain in my scapula. Dr. Sears ordered an MRI for me, but failed to follow up in any way even after I called his scheduler asking for a phone consult. I was left to rely on the radiologist report and my primary care doctor.
