Dr. Jeffrey Pearson, DO
"Funny Doctor, Serious Medicine" best describes Family and Sports Medicine physician Jeffrey Pearson. In practice for over 30 years, Dr. Pearson has a very loyal following owing to the fact that he believes in spending quality time with patients and really working with them to achieve optimum health. He was recognized for his exceptional work along these lines as far back as 1992 when he was the national recipient of the "Patient Care Award for Excellence in Patient Education" sponsored by the American Academy of Family Practice and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. He consistently earns high patient satisfaction scores on quality surveys. A native of New Jersey, Dr. Pearson graduated from Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania and received his Osteopathic medical degree from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri, in 1983. He earned his board certification in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Practices in 1986 and was later designated as a Fellow in the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine (FAOASM). He has been a member of many reputable medical organizations over the years. He has provided care for countless local high school and collegiate sports medicine programs and has served as the Medical Consultant to the world-renowned Golden Door spa since 1992. Recognizing the importance of mentoring future generations of practitioners, Dr. Pearson holds teaching positions at several medical schools and routinely trains medical students and residents (MD and DO), physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. He is also very popular with pre-medical students interested in learning more about the medical arts. He contributes to the continuing education of his peers, as well, sitting on the Board of Editors for both Patient Care and Medical Economics magazines, contributing many articles over the years. Dr. Pearson practices the full range of Family and Sports Medicine, from young children to geriatrics, with the exception of obstetrics. He is skilled in Osteopathic manipulative techniques and has coached hundreds of patients for weight loss. He served as medical director for several nursing homes over the years and also served on the Board of Directors of the Elizabeth Hospice. He does his best to make every day fun for those around him and is a professional "ician" – aside from being a physician, he is also a skilled close-up magician and a musician with two albums under his belt!

Learn about Dr. Pearson

Care Philosophy

"Funny Doctor, Serious Medicine." Attitude is everything and I use humor (when appropriate) to teach patients about their conditions. We spend time with our patients - not the usual in/out seen at most medical practices. Often compared to Patch Adams, I am not your typical physician (in a good way), consistently born out in insurance sponsored patient-surveys.

I am so glad that when I moved to California 13 years ago, I chose Dr. Pearson to be my physician. I never wait more than 20 minutes or so to get in and, he NEVER rushes like most doctors. He gives his time and expertise to medical students who shadow him and with your permission, accompany him to your visit. He is your best friend from day one...and you can tell it's not fake...he really does care. Kids and adults alike love his endless supply of amazing magic tricks. I highly recommend him!

No matter how badly you feel when walking into Dr. Pearson's office, you will ALWAYS feel so much better after your visit with him! Dr. Pearson is amazing with the way he takes his time to make you feel important, and that he genuinely cares about your welfare. He is thorough and what I like the best, is that he does NOT over-medicate. He listens, you do not feel rushed, and I have witnessed how other patients leaving his office feel in a much better state of mind than when they went in.

Dr Pearson has been treating me for about 15-20 years. I'm 62 years old. He's done an amazing job with controlling my Asthma, High Blood Pressure, back injury and a number of day to day ailments as I've gotten older. I've never left his office without a smile on my face. Would't want to be treated by anybody else. Highly recommended.

I've had several primary care physicians and Dr Pearson has been the best. Dr Pearson never runs out of jokes, but he always takes symptoms seriously. I've had some really weird issues and he always ran the necessary tests to investigate/pay it safe. What really sets him apart is his recommended treatments. Some doctors just throw prescriptions at patients and never try to actually fix the problem, but he explains everything in layman's so we can understand what he sees. He's a GREAT doctor!
