I was his first patient of the day and he was 30 minutes late without explanation. He then brought in a training doctor without asking my permission or warning me in advance. He was dismissive of my questions and did not really listen to my concerns.

Barely even looked at me. I told him where I was having problems and he never bothered to look in those places. Already made up his mind. Blech.

I would have to absolutely agree with the first review of Dr. SHear. I left feeling "jipped". If I didn't ask any questions of the causes or how to remedy the problem, he would just stare at me. Not a very good doctor at all. Typical HMO. He is a nice guy, but forthcoming at all. It was a waste of my time. I am going to another derm and paying out of pocket. My condition is getting worse. He did not offer to write a prescription. Very disappointing.

Silent type, rather non-verbal, except to suggest indirectly that certain complaints are cosmetic in nature; my generalist didn't think so, and he refused some requested services. However, he initiates action once alerted, I complained about certain things, but he found something else small and undesirable nearby and before I knew it I was prone and he was digging out a plug. Great job; painless, no anxiety, not that he announced or asked me if he could do it! He disappears like the White Rabbit - no explaination. Having presumably found one melanoma that needed to be removed, he did not inspect the rest of my body, nor did he ask any related questions which I think is a major shortcoming. I get the sense that if you don't alert him to a specific problem, he doesn't look for one or give you a good and thorough examination once he's got you in his office. Typical HMO doctor; do as little as possible by not looking for complaints or ailments.

Dr. Shear is an excellent dermatologist. Don't be put off by his brevity, he is exceptional in his knowledge and treatment.
