Specialties

Dr. James W Pearce has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

I've seen Pearce 2 times for a total of 5 min. face to face. He told me absolutely nothing. After the second time seeing him, he ordered an MRI. Appointments are 4 and 5 weeks out. Rather than an appointment I called left message for him to call me. Instead, a woman from his office called to tell me the condition "was not to bad". This guy inspires no confidence.

1 minute Doctor

I saw this doctor twice. The first time I was first seen by an intern, not Dt. Peace. The intern was fine and then Dr. Pearce came in and briefly disregarded everything the intern said. The second visit Dr. Pearce did tests, told me irrelevant stories, and then never came in to tell me the results. Most communications were through staff, not the doctor, including expensive follow-up tests that I didn't understand the purpose. Dr. Pearce's diagnosis ended up incorrect.

Two Stars

Its frustrating when you go in for a check up and spend minutes waiting in the lobby then in the room and then not even a 3 minute conversation with the doctor. It feels as if your more of a burden being there, then getting answers to your problems.

One Star

it took him 3 weeks to give me my MRI results and it was his secretary that called me, not him. I could not believe that he just dismisses his patients like that. I would not recommend him.

He is cold rude and indifferent, and he was also dead wrong!

This is the worst Doctor I have ever experienced in my life. He is rude and dismissive. He refused to answer any questions or address any of my concerns. Worst of all he was wrong. He said my MRI was perfectly normal, but when I ended up in the Straub ER again, and told the doc that my MRI came out fine, she pulled the records and told me that it is not fine or normal. UNBELIEVABLE!!
