After surgery on my brother, he didnt have the courtesy to let us know he was done and that he would be admitted overnight for observation. He left. We sat in the waiting room for an hour and half after the surgery was finished when I finally went up to ask why the surgery was taking so long, only to discover the reason. When finally returned our call it was another 20 minutes, no apology. Just "oh, I had a meeting." Unprofessional. We waited an additional 2 hours for orders. Unacceptable.

I work with Dr. Lamear in surgery. He is an excellent surgeon who genuinely cares about his patients. He is calm under pressure and great in an emergency. I would recommend him to anyone.

Waited for two hours to see Dr. LaMear.!!! Our appointment was at 9:50 and we did not see the doctor until 11:30. He came into see us and made us wAit even longer. Very poor scheduling. Don't worry if you are late. Scheduling and assistant were not good. Dr. La Mear was overbooked and very busy. He was a good doctor though. His assistant is so......... Incompetent! Only go if you have all day to spend there.

He listened to my needs and addressed them immediately. I have been having sinus issues for years, and has been the only doctor who fully listened and figured out the issue.

Love this Doctor. Removed my tonsils at 29 yrs old!Most his patients are children I was his oldest patient. Knowledgeable Doctor and Surgeon. Surgery was no walk in park but worth it. He saved my life! I havent had strep or any other serious infections since! That was 9 yrs ago! I would highly recommend him to anyone! Not only is he a great surgeon but a very kind soul. I was a very sick child chronic throat infections..these last yrs you would never believe what a blessing having my tonsils out

My daughter, 16, needed to get her tonsils out and the month later surgery availability wasn't really going to work. Dr. Lamear made the surgery happen the next day. I can't thank him enough. Not only was it medically necessary but she starts back to school in a week so having the surgery immediately will prevent her from missing a week of school later. Thank you!

just the worst. Long waits, his assistant has a bad attitude and he misdiagnosed me for three years.
