Specialties

Dr. Louis S Pearlstein 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.

Very thorough!

Even with many good reviews you got to see the bad too. After reading a couple bad reviews I have to say, an intelligent person can understand that there is only so much any person can do for symptoms of nerves, brain, etc. Dr. Pearlstein was extremely thorough and honest. He did a full check and diagnosed me with small fiber neuropathy. He also checked medical history in detail and listened to what I was actually saying is wrong rather than trying to pre-diagnose with fast probing question like many doctors do. 5 star!

Superior Neurology, caring manner, gentleman

I have been seeing Dr. Pearlstein since 1988. He and Dr. Khatri are extremely intelligent and are distinguished by their knowledge and their kind care. Dr. Pearlstein has diagnosed difficult and sometimes rate conditions. He is a wonderful man, one whom I would trust with my life.

Staff

I have no issues with the doctor. However, the one receptionist is rude and will not listen to you. They tried to force me to pay a deductible that would usually get paid through my plan. She refused to call the insurance company to confirm and told me she use to work for an insurance company and that I had an HSA. My plan is not an HSA as I told her and asked her to please call the insurance company. She told me she could not do that and it is office policy to pay the deductible upfront in order to be seen. Even though I did like Dr. Pearlstein, I will never go back to that office due to the staff.

Disappointed

Full of himself. No time for you unless it is a full blown, easy to detect issue. Anything that could be a challenge or more investigation with understanding, he is not for you.

Dr. Pearlstein is a genius

I can't believe that all the pain I was having including my stomach being upset most of the time has mostly all disappeared since Dr. Pearlstein increased the dosage of my migraine medicine. I am simply amazed that the migraines can have such an adverse effect on my body and Dr. Pearlstein's neurological expertise has me feeling 100% better.. What a great doctor !! He truly knows what he is doing.
