“David Bear is a rockstar. We are so fortunate to have somebody of his training and qualifications working in this community. I have had him do carpal tunnel surgery on both wrists. It was virtually painless, and I have no scars. I can’t express how grateful I am for the relief - no more numbness.”

“Dr. Bear is amazing, he did my hand and elbow and my daughter Keira came in to see him last week. She felt very comfortable and at ease and she has a surgery date for the 15th.”

“I had my daughter with me, who helped with the explanation. Dr. Dawdle was so nice to both of us and gave a very good description of the procedure and what can happen. He was recommended to me by one of my patients at work, and I was not disappointed.”

“Dr. Bear explained what my options are and answered my questions fully. If the steroid injection does not help, I will consider the surgery. It was a great experience, and I appreciated his and all of the staff’s time.”
