Dr. LaMear removed a benign tumor in my right cheek by my ear. He took the time to explain everything to me and made me feel comfortable with what the procedure would be. It turned out the tumor was more complicated to remove than it was supposed to be, but he removed it and all of its "tentacles" without damaging any of the numerous important nerves that run through that area. He even managed to avoid a nerve that he told me he would probably have to cut through. A few days after the surgery in the afternoon I started having some pain and wanted him to look at it. He and his assistant Amy stayed at his office until 6pm waiting for us to come (we live an hour and a half away). They bent over backward to take care of me. I would highly recommend him!
