      Dr Mears is an outstanding doctor. He is patient, compassionate and always takes the time to explain and to answer my questions and concerns. He tailors his treatment to my comfort zone and explores alternatives to which I may be more receptive. He has a great sense of humor and terrific bedside manner. I always look forward to my visits with him. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
