Best possible outcome!

From the time I was diagnosed in August 2017 with colon cancer (size of a plum) to the time I had surgery 15 days later, it was seamless!! Dr. Pearlman and his amazing staff made me feel so comforted. I am blessed to have Dr. Sorser who found the mass in a colonoscopy and got Dr. Pearlman to call and get me in the immediately for consultation on surgery. Dr. Pearlman has an amazing bedside manner and confidence. He looked at me directly and me feel very assured he could get this cancer out and I would have a great chance at complete recovery! He was right! Surgery was done just under 3 weeks of diagnoses and I have a completely recovered-no chemo or radiation! His Sense of urgency to my situation was critical. Feeling GRATEFUL for all these Doctor's did for me. Thank you Dr. Pearlman! Betty O

Stay away from this idiot and his associate. They're are in it for the best interest of the hospital and their own, not really in yours. Go get yourself someone from Mayo or Cleaveland these guys are the cream of the crop.
