What People Say About Dr. Richard Sears, MD

No stars. Was told instead of having ER do exam or run test for rectal bleeding or internal bleeding to schedule appt with my GI. He shook my hand and left room.

I do not recommend anyone seeing Dr. Sears if they have a problem that does not match a textbook definition. Dr. Sears told me that all of my problems stem from eating a high fat diet and I need to be a vegetarian and avoid dairy at all cost. He wrote me off as a know nothing 20 year old who does not eat right, never asked me about my dietary habits or previous medical history. Dr. Sears pushes his own personal non-medical based beliefs and will not listen to the patient.
