Dr. Gear has treated me with extreme compassion and professional management of my disease. She has an extremely great personal relationship with each patient, making me not only feel relaxed but confident I am being treated with the best care possible. He Staff called me during my Hospital stay for Knee Surgery just to see if I was doing OK and how my Surgerg went. I feel Dr. Gear is a super great doctor well versed in he field and treats her patients like each one professtiinally.
