We began seeing Dr. McLear earlier this year after moving from out of state. My now teen son has had 3 sets of tubes in his ears and still had issues, along with a previous doctor who was resistant to do anything. Dr. McLear made us feel at ease immediately and was straightforward, listened, and, above all, gave us a plan for moving forward. It is such a relief to now have a doctor who listens and takes action. In addition, the office staff is very pleasant and efficient.

I hope my personal testimony helps someone in need of a MD that will not give up on them.That MD is Dr. McLear. After several years of seeing over a dozen medical experts,I was always given a diagnosis of stress or anxiety.No one ever really listened to me.By the Grace of God,Dr. McLear was on call during one of my many ER visits. I was loosing weight,fatigue,having trouble swallowing and speaking,etc.Nov.16th 2016,Dr McLear informed me that I had a brain tumor. I owe this doctor my life!

He is an extremely nice Dr., but he is terrible in diagnosing and helping patients beyond simple tonsile issues. He also appears to lack in every standard and knowledge base beyond a simplistic view of the Ear, Nose and Throat profession. You can look at web md and see he's very basic. I wouldn't suggest him to anyone.

Dr. McLear performed sinus surgery for me about 2 years ago. Best surgical experience I ever had. Minimal pain post surgery (lasted for about an hour). Didn't need pain killers at all. He discussed what he would be doing prior to surgery, and visited me post surgery to describe how it went and to answer any questions. He is thorough, precise, and extremely knowledgeable. His bedside manner is very good. He conveys a sense of confidence without being condescending in any manner.
