Dr. Pearlman has cared for my mother and me over the past three years. He is an outstanding physician and a joy to know. He works in an extremely busy environment, yet I've always felt he's given me the time and care I've required. Thank goodness for doctors like Dr. Pearlman and his associates.

Dr. Pearlman is an exceptional surgeon. I had a lens implant done 30 years ago and developed complications wich led to complete blindness in my left eye. Dr. Pearlman was able to reattach my lens by sewing it to the front of my eye restoring my vision. Cannot recommend him more highly. L. Appelbaum
