About Me

"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.

Dr. Pearson takes an amazingly uplifting attitude and melds it in with his extensive medical knowledge to create a very positive patient experience. My needs are always addressed, recommendations are made, and the follow-through is both comforting and complete. He very clearly takes the whole patient into consideration when deciding a course of action, and does so with the kind of flair reserved for the likes of Patch Adams... absolutely wonderful physician.

So busy telling jokes, he didn't listen to my needs or concerns. Scoffed at me when I asked for an adjustment (the whole point of choosing an osteopath) but reluctantly annoyed that i interrupted his puppet show. Then worse, he let an assistant give me a shot of Kenalog steroids in the butt. She had not been properly trained and as a result, i have a crater about 2 inches round and 2 inches deep painful. When i went back, he suggested cosmetic surgery and took no responsibility at all. Demeaning

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!
