Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pearlman "Going into the colorectal surgeon?s office can be a frightening experience. Many patients in my waiting room are there for the first time, waiting to receive a colonoscopy (the traditional procedure for colon cancer screening), whose findings may change the patient?s life. Others are coming to me for a colorectal surgical consult, perhaps to remove a suspicious polyp, or even a cancerous tumor. I understand your fears. I will do everything I can to eliminate them."

Dr. Pearlman was the second doctor I seen this year for some issues that wouldn't go away. I was very fearful of the unknown and being a female in my 20's I was uncomfortable walking in there. I didn't feel like another piece of paper in his office. My first appt he put me at ease, did not rush me...more

I have not been to Dr. Pearlman's office in the last few years so I can't comment on the office cleanliness and the staff etc.Due to my family history I need to have a colonoscopy much more often than the one every 10 years that my insurance will pay for and Dr Pearlman makes this frustrating...more
