I read the reviews of this being an older office and it definitely was. No ceiling lights in the waiting room and we were told to write our name on a waiting list before we actually ever spoke to anyone. Iwaited 30 minutes after my appointment was supposed to happen for them to call my name just to take my insurance card. He's the only doctor in the practice and there were 4 other people ahead of me so, in turn, I waited over an hour after my original appointment. Besides the chair in the main room to meet with him was straight out of an old movie, he was receptive to questions and although he could not personally help me, he recommended next steps for me.

Once I alerted the doctor's clerk that I had submitted my initial visit data via Zocdoc, she found it quickly; that shortened my wait time. Dr. Pearl was thorough in his exam, clear enough in his explanations, and very responsive to my questions.

I loved the staff but I couldn’t stand the doctor. I definitely won’t be going back. He was rude and I think he thought he was funny, but he wasn’t. He didn’t listen to me and assumed that because I amnot a doctor I didn’t know what I was talking about - when I know my body (damn well) and I didn’t appreciate being treated that way. He was very very rude. Never again! I paid too much to be treated that way.

Normally, I get frustrated when Doctors get behind their schedules, but I owe a debt to Dr. Pearl for his wisdom and kindness. He apologized for being late, but he immediately put me at ease about that. He is smart andhumane, and he's a rare Doctor who could recommend that I might need to consider a surgical procedure without scaring the patient. He explains things in such a decent and helpful way that he can really help manage anxiety. I owe him a thank you for his kindness and smarts. Susan B.

Dr. Pearl put me at ease immediately. He took the time to talk to me and understand me as a person rather than just my symptoms. Yes, the office is shabby and a bit outdated in decorations, but it didn’t botherme. All tools used were clean and sanitized and I felt very safe.

Dr. Pearl has been my otolaryngologist for more than a decade. He is highly professional, but still finds time for "human" concerns, i.e., knowing me and my family as individuals, not merely as abstract diagnoses.

I really liked the doctor. Wait was longer than I'd hoped based on other reviews. I'm not usually so particular about such things but the exam room I was seen in was really gross. Dirty, outdated. Gave me serious pause about germs.

I had a disappointing experience. I was prescribed antobiotics by the doctor but somehow my pharmacy received the perscription under another name. Of course they could not give me that medication. When I called the doctor back to check, theassistant assured me the prescription was delivered. She told me to wait a little while. When I called the pharmacy the perscrition still had not arrived in my name. So I called the doctor back only to learn they had left for the day! That's inexcuseable. Why pay to to receive such treatment? I cannot recommend this doctor's services.

The office is a little shabby. I thought the doctor was very nice, he listened, and had very sensible, conservative advice. He was slightly patronizing, as many doctors can be. I did not feel rushed. I would recommend.

We've known and worked with Dr. Pearl for many years. He is a man who is interested in many different topics, and is correspondingly interested in his patient as a whole person, not just in whatever pertains to his area ofexpertise. Our medical needs are few -- he mostly takes care of annual hearing and ENT checkups and occasional colds or simple infections. He has always treated both my husband and me with caring and courtesy. We can count on him for a quick and highly competent and knowledgeable response to any issue we might present to him.
