About Me:

Dr. Sears is board certified in internal medicine, critical care, and pulmonary disease. He specializes in critical care medicine, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and evaluation of breathlessness of undetermined origin. He offers advanced or invasive cardiopulmonary exercise testing. We are one of the few centers nationally capable of such testing which is the “gold standard” to diagnose the root cause of exercise intolerance and help guide treatment decisions. Dr. Sears is the principal investigator for industry sponsored research investigations in pulmonary arterial hypertension and critical care medicine. He is also the Medical Education Director of Clinical Research for Graduate Medical Education. He has a passion for clinical research and medical education. Outside of work, Dr. Sears enjoys time with his wife and two children. He and his family enjoy all the Pacific Northwest offers including hiking and skiing. He is an avid trail runner and enjoys golf, cycling and yoga.

Dr. Sears and his team are amazing. He took a good deal of time with us to listen to our concerns and came up with not only a solution moving forward but also a back up plan we can take should this plan not work or when my dad's health becomes worse and a change becomes necessary.
