I had a 4:00 pm appointment, and waited more than an hour to see Dr. Fearing. When she finally came in, she said she can’t stay long, she has to get to a program at her child’s school. I arrived on time and waited for her. That instantly shut me down, and essentially said to me to not ask any questions or do anything that will take extra time. I made the appointment to consider my surgical options and the staff kept giving me paperwork like I had surgery and was there for a follow-up.

Meeting with Dr Fearing has been great! Her and her staff are very kind. She answered very question I had to ask. She made it easy to understand everything about my procedure and what to expect and she let me know that i was right on track. The staff is just as concerned about everyone that comes into the office as well. Thank you all!

Dr Fering is a "caring" Dr. I would highly recommend her!! She is thorough, spends time with her patients, and down to earth with you. She answers all your questions in language you can understand. Excellent bed side manners as they say! You would be in good hands with her surgery hands.

If anyone, male or female, is considering a life changing, permanent weight loss, Dr. Nicole Fearing, MD is your expert specialist in Bariatric Surgery. My first appointment was overwhelmingly full of great information regarding my decision to permanent weight loss. Dr. Fearing listens to her patients history, asks questions, makes a plan designed for you, and is never in a hurry to leave the examination room. Her staff is incredible and will walk you through your journey. Kudos to this practice

I just had my consultation with Dr Fearing last week and it went very well! From the friendly staff, minimal wait times, to having all question answered. It was a very personal experience and that's so important to me as a patient considering something so serious as bariatric surgery. I would definitely recommend her to the next person!

The courtesy and kindness of all staff members and Dr. Fearing herself gives me confidence that I've found the right doctor. I don't feel like a number to them, but an actual person they care about. Highly recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fearing for over 2 years. When I went in for my very first appointment she listened to me and treated me like a person. That means a lot to me I've seen many doctors over the years and felt judged on site. Dr. Fearing is the complete opposite she really cares about her patients, if their is ever any questions or concerns her and the great staff are always polite and willing to help. I started with her at a B.M. I. of 92 and on O2. Considering WLS Call Dr. Fearing off
