He specializes in critical care medicine, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and evaluation of breathlessness of undetermined origin. He offers advanced or invasive cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

I really like Dr Sears. He is knowledgeable of my health issues, recommends appropriate care and follows up. His MA April is the best. Always returns call promptly, asks the appropriate questions and always gets back to me as she says she will. Great team.

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.
