Dr. Richard J Sears has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Saved husband's life

My husband had a bleeding ulcer, that actually ruptured, vomiting over one pint of blood clots. He was rushed to the ER, and Dr. Sears was on the on call surgeon. He calmly explained what happened, what needed to be done to both my husband and me. When the surgery was over, there were no complications, none of the possible "bad" things happened. Dr. Sears was matter of fact, but not cold. I have chosen him for our doctor for anything below the belt! He is competent, honest and has our complete confidence.
