Doctor Pearle performed a complete repair on my Rotor Cuff. The office staff was very attentive and helpful in preparation for my surgery and hospital stay. Would not hesitate for one second in seeing Dr. Pearle if I ever needed a great Orthopedic surgeon for my knees or shoulder again.

Dr. Pearle did a partial knee replacement for me and it is great be fixed! I had minimal discomfort and could walk the next day. It was absolutely no big deal. I’d especially like to compliment Nicki Fein, his P.A., who is totally excellent. Also, the office staff who make every thing run seamlessly. The final shout out goes to HSS as I’ve never had such an efficient hospital experience...and I’ve had at least ten in patient hospitalizations for comparison. Thank you Dr. Pearle, Nicki and Co.

Dr Pearle is an amazing surgeon with a top notch support staff. I’m an eye surgeon, had a partial knee replacement in September 2017, and I was skiing black diamonds by Christmas! No pain ever! What a tremendous experience!

Dr. Pearle is a wonderful surgeon and his staff is excellent. Dr. Pearle was forthcoming and honest about what we could expect. My husband had knee surgery and Dr. Pearle's office manager, Dana, was caring, compassionate and honestly moved mountains to accommodate my husband's schedule for both surgery and post operative visits. We were so happy with the surgical outcome that we now refer patients to Dr. Pearle in the medical practice I work for.

Thank you so much for giving me my life back! I had a TKR on March 10, 2017. After suffering for over a year ( I had bone on bone issues) I found Dr. Pearle my life saver. As soon as I hobbled into his office I knew that I was in safe hands. He did an excellent job with the replacement surgery, so far so good. This year a can finally get back to gardening, I am walking with no issues. I gave my Dr. his number, because I trust him that much. Thank you again Dr. Pearle.

I am an avid athlete, skier and nationally ranked tennis player. I came to Dr Pearle barely walking due to extreme pain in the lateral compartment of my knee. I had lateral knee replacement surgery February 2016. I was back on the court three months later and enjoyed doing all sports throughout the summer. It is now 10 months later and I feel perfect. I play tennis a minimum of three times a week competitively without any pain and have begun to ski again. thank you for giving my life back.

I personally found the entire experience of dealing with the office staff for an initial appointment through surgery and follow up to be spectacular. I found Dr. Pearle and his staff to be knowledgeable and accomodating. My concerns and questions were addressed and Dr. Pearle put my mind at ease with his patient and kind bedside manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him (already have) and to use him again (and I am)!

I was referred to this dr by another doctor after he has reviewed my x-ray. when I called trying to set up an appointment, I was told by the office manager, a Dana, that according to her I should find another doctor. I asked if she was trained to determine which doctor I should see, she simply transferred me to a doctor referral line. Horrible service,
