This was a really great doctor office visit for me. They are trying to streamline checkin by using user friendly technology (still some kinks, but impressive). Dr Kearse is energetic, informative, confident, and personable. He made me feelcomfortable quickly and was more than willing to answer my questions fully. He customized my treatment to my life scenario. I want to get back to working out quickly and he wants to help me get there without setting myself back. I'm not fixed yet, but I'm confident I have the right doctor to get me there.

Excellent, competent, compassionate physician who takes his time, actively listens to patients, and is up to date on the most current treatment options. Does not recommend surgery unless absolutely necessary. Would highly recommend Dr.Kearse, and I am a medical professional - he stands out and is a great example for others to follow.

I was seen prior to my appointment time. Dr. Kearse is a wonderful orthopedic doctor. He treats the severe arthritis in my hands. He includes me in my health care decisions. I have been a patient of this practice for avery long time for several orthopedic issues. I would not consider changing and highly recommend the entire group for your orthopedic needs. The staff is very friendly, professional and caring. What more could you want.
