Patient Comments (4)
in Marion, Iowa |
Great doctor. Very nice and easy to talk to.
in Cedar Rapids, IA |
Dr. Tearse does not care about the condition of his patients, nor does he care about the pain they are experiencing. He is not able to provide information to help relieve the pain of the condition or diagnose problems. He will refer you to other doctors that have month long waiting lists. He has an attitude that prevents him from explaining conditions well. Overall I am very annoyed that I spent 3 months with Dr. Tearse and he was still not able to help me.

Dr Tearse is patient, knowledgable, and makes the patient and family feel at ease. Highly recommend Dr Tearse!

I had a complicated knee joint injury fractured femur in the knee joint. I had a surgery performed by one knee specialist and it failed, I had Dr.Tearse work on it and fix held I would recommend him to any and every body, his bed side manner is unmatched. Recovery goes at your pace and.your comfort level.
