Professional Statement

**Although not in network for all insurances, I submit all insurance claims electronically and I participate in most PPO and POS insurance plans as an out-of network provider, usually after your annual deductible is met. I'll be glad to assist you in understanding this process.** If you are unable to keep your appointment, please give me at least 24 hours notice, otherwise you are responsible for the full fee. When you "book" an appointment, it is NOT confirmed until we have spoken. Please return my call or email within 24 hours, otherwise I will cancel the appointment and make that time available for another patient.

I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist and have been in practice for over thirty years. My preferred method of therapy is one that is collaborative in nature. Our overall goal would include helping you to help yourself by developing a deeper understanding of your behaviors, actions and feelings. My unique collaborative method is most successful with patients who want to get well and live happy and productive lives. The key to comprehending and solving your problems is to be found in your uniqueness. We are all special and our individuality must be respected.

My office is a safe and warm environment which can only contribute to these goals. I am skilled at integrating medication when it is indicated and helpful in attenuating symptoms, which not only may interfere with daily functioning, but also allow greater strides in reaching your goals.

I choose to work with those who want to improve, get better and thrive. And I will help you, by using the approach that I believe is indicated, whether psychodynamic, supportive, cognitive, behavioral, psychopharmacological or a combination thereof to live a better today and an even more rewarding tomorrow.

It was unlike any other experience I have ever had, he kept interrupting the visit to answer phone calls, and finally ended the session by saying his schedule was to busy to accommodate me if I was not interested in taking medications, I feel this should have been discussed when we were arranging an appointment as I would not have wasted my time nor opened up about all the sensitive issues I was experiencing. However, I do feel he offered good feedback overall.

I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of my appointment with Dr. Pearl. I've seen (and was disappointed with) several other NYC psychiatrists and right away I could tell Dr. Pearl was going to be different - he asked MANY questions, not only about my mental health but my physical health, upbringing, family members, etc. He explained what he thought might be going on but didn't try to force any particular diagnosis on me right away. He VERY thoroughly explained the type of medicine he prescribed, what it was supposed to do, what kind of side effects it might have, and how I might expect it to affect me and he directly answered the questions I had about it. He was completely focused on my input, concerns and opinions and I am quite happy that I picked Dr. Pearl as my new doctor.
