Well you wait, wait, wait, wait. A 2:00 PM appt. gets you out of there at 5:30. Even out of season. There staff is terrible all they do is nothing and are not helpful and they challenge everyone. I suggest you do not use them and Dr. Pearlman is a crook and lazy. Move on!!! Find another Eye Center!!!

Dr. Pearlman is perhaps the worst example of corporate medicine I've ever seen as a physician. He actually was supposed to perform cataract surgery on my 85 yo mother and declined due to my being an eye doctor and possibility of a law suit if complications arose. Most doctors would be proud to show off their surgical skills to another eye doctor especially if they were entrusting their mother's care to their hands. Very unprofessional and probably a skittish surgeon. WOULD NOT allow him near my patient's eyes!! Avoid the HMO doctor who cherry picks his cases, that's not how we train to repair patient's eyes.

Whoever thought the cataract surgery could be a good experience, But with Dr. Pearlman at the head of the table it was “all good”. From his office staff to the surgical staff everything was done to make me feel comfortable. I am just scheduled my second eye surgery and look forward to it. I have been singing his praises to anyone that would listen!

Despite the fact he’s a Yankees fan, Dr. Peatlamnis a very knowledgeableand sensitive provider. He is part of a large practice, and he and his staff have treated me for a variety of conditions. If you talk baseball, you’ll see eye 2 eye with Dr. Pearlman.
