I feel badly that this mom had a bad experience at the Sears' practice. We have been bringing our 5 kids here since 1995. We love the staff, especially Sue, who has been there forever. Although Bill is our primary doctor, Vivi has been seeing my youngest son for the past two years for all his sick visits, which add up to a lot...he has a life-threatening pituitary disorder. Every doctor deserves more than one chance on an office visit. Vivi is definitely worth it. I've found her to be very intelligent and thoughtful in her approach to getting to know and understanding my son's issues. She has called me after hours and on her days off to follow up and check on my son. She has made phone calls to school on his behalf. If she's not sure about something, she researches it and gives us reliable information. As far as the vax question...we have been very conservative and Vivi respects that as much as she does any of our decisions. I trust Dr Vivi because she takes her responsibility for my son's care very seriously and always gives me her educated opinion so that I can then make an informed choice.

Dr. Vivi was very rushed and all over the place. I was expecting her to be friendly to non-vaxing but she told me she was very pro-vaccine and asked me to take information about shots! She also said it was ok to retract my two year old's foreskin. I told her it was heinous that she should ever say that to a patient. She said and Oncologist friend of hers said it was ok! Ha! I'm am assuming she is just new. Will not be returning to her, maybe I'll try one of the Sears but I'm not sure.

I've been doing the hour drive to Sears Pediatrics for 5 years now. Both of my kid 3 & 5 are patients of Dr. Jim Sears. We've also seen Dr. Bob and Dr. Peter. I chose them originally when my first was 6mos old and I was tired of hearing the same thing over and over from my very mainstream Dr. "she shouldn't be waking at night, supplement her with formula, don't nurse her at night she is just manipulating you" Are you kidding me!? Thank God that although I was a first time Mom, I went with my gut. After all, everything was going great - why was he trying to change things? I called Dr. Sears Pediatrics and was thrilled that they were taking new patients. With both kids aside from one illness each, I've only been to their office for well visits. Every visit has been incredible beyond words. The ladies up front, although very busy, are very knowledgeable and helpful. The waiting room is never crowded. I've never waited more than a few moments to be brought in to the exam room and then from there I've not waited long for the Dr. I always feel like we are the only patients in the office. I know they are busy but I don't hear anyone else and Dr. Jim is never rushed. One reviewer said they only treat you well if you have money. Really? Dr. Jim doesn't know how much money we have. I treat him nice and I get the same back. I feel all the staff from the front end, billing, and the doctors are very friendly and professional. I highly recommend Sears Pediatrics.

I started taking my kids to this office thinking they would receive great care from these "famous" doctors, and have been extremely dissapointed. The front office staff is rude, as well as the nurses. They are very stuck up, and have never been friendly when I go in. The doctors are not what they are cracked up to be, I find them arrogant, and dont seem to care much about children just money. I have been walked out on in the middle of conversations because the Dr. was in a hurry to talk to his wife, I have been treated very poorly in this office, I would not reccommend this office to anyone , unless your one of the people with tons of money that they seem to cater to. Very Sad Office

My daughter is 16 months old and has been seen by Drs. Bob, Peter, and Jim Sears. They are all very kind and knowledgeable, and always do their best to fit me in for sick appointments. Their office is very clean and staff is also very kind and knowledgeable, taking time to discuss options over the phone as well. I live far but think Sears pediatrics is well worth the drive!

PROS: kind, professional, intelligent, clean office, easy location
CONS:

I take my 15-month old to one of the 3 Sears family pediatricians, Dr. Robert Sears. He is very friendly & seems to be very knowledgeable. All the three doctors are very famous & due to that reason, they have many engagements like writing books, attending TV shows etc. Twice recently, I couldn't get a sick-appointment for my baby as all of them were out-of-office.
