I've been coming here for treatment of allergies over 4 years . They are often busy, but I've never felt rushed when meeting with Dr. Pearlstein. He has always given me no-nonsense advice about my situation and is very warm and personable. They recently changed up the allergy nurse staff and it's a home-run. Mary Ann has always been very nice and helpful, and Brenda is a great addition. The front desk could use better triage; when busy there may be patients milling around in confusion.

Based off of reviews regarding Dr. Pearlstein, it is apparent that I am not the only patient who received deplorable care and negative experiences with him. He showed me absolutely no support during this difficult time, rather joked about how unhappy I was with the trach and not being able to speak. He had a bigger negative impact on my life than he can ever imagine and he showed little care and even less remorse. Look at the other doctors in the Youngstown area, they all have higher rating.

I WILL NEVER GO TO THIS OFFICE AGAIN. Dr. Pearlstein is a nice man ... just not an attentive Dr. The office is always packed... which is why it makes sense that the Dr. doesnt seem to have the time to listen or give you much detail surrounding your condition. . I felt rushed, unimportant, and overlooked... on BOTH OCCASSIONS. However..there was one nurse.. that did the irrigation of my ear that was very kind patient and comforting... the rest of the staff seemed cold and unwelcoming..

Daughter had reoccurring ear infections. He was very thorough when explaining our options and when it came time to get tubes he was wonderful.

Went in due to sinus blockage in one nostril and constant drainage and phlegm in my throat. Dr. came in looked in my nose said your crooked( meaning my septum deviated) gave my a sample of Rhinecort nasal spray and a $4.00 coupon to buy more over the counter, never addressed the drainage or coughing up phlegm told me to come back in a month as I would be a candidate for surgery if the nasal spray didnt help me. Overall a nice guy but I wont be back

I went to see dr Pearlstein for tonsil stones. I was given a do it yourself speech. Told to open my mouth . Come back if I want surgery. 10 minutes tops I waited over a hour . So sad

I was very displeased with Dr. Pearlstein. I went to see him for debilitating headaches due to sinus and was given a hearing test instead and no explanations as to what was his opinion was about my headaches. Instead, was told I could use a hearing aid if I chose to. I never went to see him on account of my hearing loss problem. Further more, he just sent me to the check out desk and the front desk person just yelled back at me ... as needed as If I knew what the doctor had decided.

Dr. Pearlstein was very friendly and helpful. I had to have surgery done and he made me feel very comfortable.
