He has a wonderful manner and I really appreciated his generosity of time. Verified Patient Feb 1, 2018 The check-in process worked great. With each of the courteous, efficient office personnel all I had to do was drop a smile and it was immediately returned to me. Five minute wait for the Doctor (60 min at my "first opinion"). Doctor patiently explained things well. Answered all my questions. Sent me home feeling better than when I arrived (shot to the shoulder, the first opinion doc didn't even suggest). I actually look forward to my future visits (well, maybe not so much to surgery, if needed). Verified Patient Jul 20, 2017 I have had 3 shoulder operations with Chesapeake and could not have been treated any better any where else. This is a top notch operation. I recommend this practice to everybody I come in contact with. Verified Patient May 25, 2017 Great service! I'm very happy with Dr. Bear and everything he did for me. Great team! Verified Patient Mar 8, 2017 It was very hot today in the office Verified Patient Feb 2, 2017 Thank you Dr. Bear for your kindness and good humor during my visit at Chesapeake. I had nightmares about my knee surgery, but I am grateful that my experience was so positive thanks to your excellent work. Also worth mentioning is that the staff was kind, professional, and courteous -- I did not have to wait long to be checked in and seen by by the doctor. I send my heartfelt thanks to all. Verified Patient Dec 5, 2016 Dr. Bear is a great Doctor, he is a people person like me and makes u feel at ease, and explains everything so clearly. Verified Patient Dec 14, 2015 I am so thankful for Dr Bear & staff Sign in is easy, always greeted with smiles, feels clean and you get a sense of at home feeling. Dr Bear makes you feel at ease & he is kind & gentle. Always listens & never rushes you. I was 8 min late. Suffering from severe head cold. Was not criticized for being late just greeted with a smile & said we will be with you shortly. Dr Bear & staff truly makes you feel they truly care. Thank you so much for everything. The sad part about this msg is when I am better I will truly miss you all. Look for pop in visits.
