Specialties

Dr. James L Pearle Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Patient

I have been a patient of Dr. Pearl's since 1991. I had just been diagnosed with asthma and bronchitis and I had just started a new job. Well I was very sick and needed a doctor asap so I was at my new job that I really wasn't able to function at so I looked through the yellow pages for doctors in my area and that is how I found Dr. Pearle. I made my appointment and luckily it was for 2 hours from then. So I told my boss who was a super lady. When I told her the name of the doctor she said she knew him well and really liked him. She knew him from personal experience because she took her mom to see Dr. Pearle. That put my mind at ease and went to see him. The man is excellent at what he does. I stay pretty healthy for the most but when the weather starts going from hot to chilly to extremely hot to cool and untrusting I get sick and have to see Dr. Pearle. So it's been about 2 years since I have seen him and right now I'm feeling a little yucky with night coughing and shortness of breath and just a little off so I know it's time to see Dr.Pearle.
