Dr. Bear is a skilled surgeon who answered my questions regarding the treatment of my knee and need for partial knee replacement. He even encouraged me to seek another opinion if I wished. I had Dr. Bear perform the surgery which ending up being a total knee replacement. Bear is very direct and to the point. He's clear about your treatment plan. His team, including his care coordinator/scheduler and PA, are warm, helpful, and patient.

My experience with Dr. Jan Bear and his team was very positive. He spent a lot of time with me; I did not feel rushed. He explained the procedure and answered all of my questions. Thank you.

Superbe surgeon,very skilled, and experienced, performed my bilateral total hip replacements, great care and speedy recovery! Wonderful team, addressed all of my concerns. Great follow up. Thanks!

On initial consult with Dr. Bear he merely stood in the doorway, not even entering the room with me and his assistant and his scheduling nurse to discuss my case. He seemed arrogant and flippant, as if he didn't need to talk with me, just get me on the conveyor belt. I did not go back to him; besides, I wanted anterior method hip replacement which he does not do.
