Care Philosophy

Minimally invasive treatment of spinal and cranial pathology is a large part of my practice. This means causing the least amount of tissue disruption possible while still performing maximally effective surgery. I use a multidisciplinary approach and try to push patients through a full spectrum of non-operative treatments before committing to the risk and tissue disturbances associated with surgical intervention. A minimally invasive approach to neurosurgery leads to better results for patients by avoiding surgery until it is necessary, smaller incisions, faster recovery, fewer complications, and reducing long term pain

No star from me. He is the most condescending Dr. I've ever met. He don't care not one bit about you. He does not listen to anything you say. He is not the one in pain...but by golleys he is a know it all's (so he thinks) and very rude! No compassion what so EVER! I would not recommend him to dying person,because they wouldn't have a chance in the world with Dr.Balke Pearson. Love, Jaime Fowler

He fat shamed me too when my back was broken and J had a bone embedded in my spinal cord. He said he couldn't help me but wanted to do an MRI anyway. After the MRI he called and said he needed to do surgery. The first time I saw him he was so arrogant about my weight. Before surgery at the consult he was kind and said this was going to be the most serious surgery he had ever done. He did the surgery and his bedside manner was cold. He said it would be very painful and I got pitiful help. Rude

Dr. Pearson literally changed my life! I can't say enough about his expertise and knowledge. He has a patient and understanding manner and makes sure his patients understand his recommendations. I highly recommend him.

He yelled at me during initial visit regarding incontinence. He was inconsiderate of my concerns and rushed. He stated I had options and did not allow me an option. Added another surgery without explaining anything to me. He documented that he fully explained second surgery. I was informed me of a hospital policy that greatly restricted my rights and ability to have surgery. Administration of hospital backed it up but corporate did not. When I went for a second opinion. I was dropped.

I would not recommend this quack to anyone. Told me nothing was wrong but would not be able to walk in 15 years. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. He is arrogant and no bedside manner. Very unprofessional!! Would not send my worse enemy to see him. Did not even look at my MRI's only X-rays! Now we all know MRI's show more. Please whatever you do do not go see this quack of a doctor if you truly need help with back problems. He is not going to do anything to help you!!

Dr. Pearson saved my Dad's life. He is the most important man in my life so just saying this should help you understand the gratitude and satisfaction I have for De. Pearson. I will recommend him to anyone needing a neurologist!
