What People Say About Dr. Thomas Bear, MD
Reply
Sadly, I feel compelled to make others aware of my experience last year. I was a patient with failing knees for years and finally decided to schedule TKR's. While both surgeries went well, aftercare was zero. When I reported terrible hip pain, asked various questions, needed additional pain meds - got no answers - standard answer was ' thats all part of it'. Bear became angry when I pressed for answers. I needed answers and support - and received aftercare from my chiropractor THANK GOODNESS.

My husband is returning to Dr Bear for his second knee replacement. He wouldn't go to anyone else.
