Most excellent care & attention. I was very sick with virus. It ill-effected my breathing. Dr. explained different areas that could be a problem. He saw how sick I was! (Dr. Sears) he admitted me to hospital right away. I couldn't breathe good.

Nothing regarding visit, but filling out this survey was difficult. The program or format is such that answers change when you attempt to scroll down between questions. Someone not carefully following might provide an answer not intended.

This was my first visit with Dr. Sears. I liked him immediately, finding it easy to talk to him and feeling very much at ease. He was very thorough and took time to explain things. He was thoughtful and caring, making new discoveries concerning my health and sharing this information in a way not to alarm me. We came up with a plan which also helped. I feel I could not have asked for more.

All good!! Dr. Sears came about due to previous smoking history so not my usual MD. Cannot say enough good things about the "My Health" app - ALL information is there for any provider I choose.

Friendly, calm, very knowledgeable... And Dr. Sears seemed actually interested. I liked that a lot. I also appreciated the demonstration of how to use new med apparatus; I'd never seen a demonstration in a doctor's office before yesterday, only incomprehensible drawings.

If ever there was the 'perfect provider's and 'perfect staff's it would be Dr Steven Sears and his Medical Staff, and Receptionists. I am always treated with kindness and understanding by all. Dr Sears is probably the most caring and informed Doctor I've had in my years. He and everyone who works in his Clinic get my 2 thumbs up, and a Perfect 10!

Dr Sears is a very attentive Dr. He has a great bedside manner and listened to everything I said. This was noticed via summary of visit and all the details that were remembered during my visit. I would recommend this Doctor to anyone that needs to see a Pulmonologist!

Dr Sears listened to everything and/or complaint I had. He helped me by checking on a side effect that I didn't know was related to a drug another doctor had prescribed. He outlined a plan of action for me and gave me a written record of exactly what he said in our meeting and what he expected me to do. Dr Sears has offered to talk to my family and my daughter who is a doctor. He also told me that he would talk to the doctor who had prescribed the medicine that was giving me unwanted and painful side effects. When Dr Sears is in the examination room you know that he is there to take care of you and your needs as his patient and as a person..

Although it was a busy day for this clinic - & EMTs came to transport a patient to another place (hospital?) all the office members were calm & helpful. Not too much of a delay.

Dr Sears listens and offers solutions to issues. I've always left the office feeling like he cares and wants to help me make improvements to my health. He is the best doctor I've had at the Pulmonary Clinic since Dr Sheerer who finally diagnosed my issues (after years of no diagnosis). I'm very happy with Dr Sears.
