Dr. James A Pearce has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Dr. Pearce is NOT "old as dirt".

I know Dr. Pearce personally- he is in his late forties-- not "old as dirt", as the other reviewer stated. He's a great person as well as being a great doctor.

Terrrible physician

This doctor is older than dirt. He prescribed motrin without even examining me, he did not look at my records and did not even care. Stay away. Beware.
