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 and explained things well. He told me what to do at home to get rid of my problem. I am happy to say I am finally pain free. If you are having any problems, big or small, he will be there to help you.

Colonoscopy with Dr. Pearlman at Providence Park Hospital. Very happy. Everyone was friendly, informative and professional. Dr. Pearlman was great.

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 situation less difficult with his professionalism.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Pearlman to anyone dealing with hemorrhoid issues. Not only is he very professional, it is obvious he cares deeply about the patient. After he did an examination, he said, We're going to get you better. Others I had seen didn't speak this way at all. Simply put, a talented physician and a good man.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Pearlman's Care Philosophy

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.
