Dr. Bear has been practicing general cardiology for more than 25 years diagnosing and treating a wide range of cardiovascular disorders such as hypertension, lipid disorders, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and cardiac arrhythmias.

He went on to complete his residency in internal medicine from Kennedy Memorial Hospital University Medical Center in Stratford New Jersey. He completed his cardiology fellowship at Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center. He performed another fellowship in interventional cardiology at the University of Virginia Medical Center.

My experience today 3/16/23 was nothing short of amazing. The staff were all in sync & most importantly they were all smiling. Let me say meeting Dr. Bear was another amazing experience. He was polite & interacted/spoke with everyone in the waiting area. Such a nice breath of fresh energy especially when new patients are nervous.

First off the front desk staff were very polite and helpful. They spoke very clearly so I could understand what they were saying. They did a superb job in scheduling me for my upcoming appointments and printed them out for me awesome. The medical assistant was amazing when taking down my information and Phil did a great job connecting the EKG tabs to me and also when removing them. Dr. Bear was very informative and explained everything to me so I would know what he is going to do. Thank you for being outstanding Dr. Bear and his staff.
