Doctor Bear successfully followed up and lowered my blood pressure. Very careful and thorough monitoring with another follow up in September with lab work. Dr. Darryl Pokea, Psychologist

Dr Bear listens and knows what he is doing

   — Carissa Dyer


Dr. Bear seems courteous and professional. appointments have been on time. He seems to work "by the book" and does not seem to encourage discussion of concerns other than those scheduled for the ccurrent appointment. He did quickly review the recent test results and past concerns briefly. Given the number of people he needs to see each day, I believe he served my needs adequately.

   — Al Villalobos


Dr. Bear is very good manner and answers all the questions. He is new to me as a good many Drs. are at this time in my journey in life. You must always remember to share all your symptom's with your Dr. as they see many patients besides you. Most Drs. have a 15minute timeline, However we all have a limited one too.
