The receptionist is like a sour patch. First she is really sour then she is sweet. She can come off really mean. Dr. Shear deserves better than what's in the reception area. I'm uncertain he knows what the patients face beforeseeing him. The office needs updating and tlc. Very nice doctor and every knowledgeable and caring.

The doctor did not use gloves or wash his hands before or after he worked with me. It left me wondering when the last time he washed his hands. The Doctor seems to lack control over his staff. They are veryrude. Specifically the main office manager. She is so low-class and vulgar. It is not a place people want to go to feel supported and cared for. She talks down to people who ask her questions, which is part of her job. She is also extremely loud and discusses inappropriate topics around patients and their children. I am completely disgusted with this place. Please find yourself another doctor.

The doctor did not seem to wash his hands before or after interacting with patients. Also, the office staff, specifically the office manager, are awful at customer service. Rude attitudes, nasty responses. They treat patients like they are expendable. Horrible. Find another office. There are enough Doctors out there.

It was strange, asked to not sit in empty chairs away from other people (I have cold, they do not) and receptionist never used that area. Office smelled like a combo of wet laundry and mold, and my nose was clogged.Dr was nice but didn't really listen and made assumptions, would not go back.

The staff members were extremely unprofessional. They were having personal conversations loud enough that the patients could hear. I still had to fill out paperwork when I got there , even though I already did it online. Not an experience Icould say I was pleased with. Definitely wouldn't recommend

The doctor at this office is a nice guy. But maybe he is too nice. The office staff he has working the front desk is a very rude and nasty person. Upon my arrival I said good afternoon, and she rolledher eyes. Literally rolled here eyes like a middle school student. Then, while in with the doctor, she could be clearly heard screaming at another patient i the waiting room. She was nasty, condescending and cynical. When people seek out medical help, they tend to be scared, or vulnerable. This is not a very good environment to receive that type of service. I hope she grows as a receptionist, or the doctor finds a new assistant.

I was helped as soon as I went to the counter. After I finished my paper work I was seen immediately. Everything was quick and professional. I was out of his office no later than 1:45 and I finished my paperwork at 1:15 because I was taking my time. Great office!

I felt comfortable with Dr. Shear. He took time and asked me a number of questions concerning my family history, although I was the last patient of the day, scheduled a half hour AFTER the time the last patient is seen.He seemed genuinely concerned for my well-being. I liked the mannerisms of his staff. The two ladies were professional and warm.

The Doctor is pleasant,very knowledgeable and thorough. His staff is courteous and professional. The office is well organized and clean. They were kind enough to see me even though the time I booked through zoc doc for an appointment was actuallyinaccurate. I had booked my appointment 40 minutes post their closing time based on zoc docs posted hours for this physician. I recommend calling the office post booking to confirm . :)

The main receptionist was disgustingly vulgar; she had no regard for the things she was saying around patients. She half assed her job, and gave me half a speech and finished it off with "I don't remember the rest, I'm tiredof telling people." She was on many personal phone calls, spoke badly of other employees. I would never go back here again.
