Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey E. Pearce
Dr Pearce is not a warm and fuzzy kind of man but he is straightforward and honest. My wife was told by him that surgery would not fix her problem and we are grateful every day that he didn't just cut on her to make money. When I found a huge bulging disk in my neck, he was the first one I called. I am pain free and back to work at Boeing. I respect him and so do the other doctors in the area.
had arm and shoulder pain and numbnesss. needed c-5 and c-6 disk and bone spurs removed and replaced with a donor bone. After the surgery I noticed the pain in my arm was completely gone. The surgery made me sore, mostly muscle tightness, that lasted a couple weeks. It is now 4 weeks later and I feel great. Still need to take it easy, avoid heavy lifting and jarring activies but Dr. Pearce did a great job!
Wow, this was a crazy experience. I was sent to this doctor due to arm pain. (Bone growth in my neck causing arm pain-herniated disc too but that was not the cause of the pain.) It was recommended that I have a fusion surgery along with a plastic 'absorbable' plate to hold the fusion together until the bone fused. I was told that the plate would absorb in 6-8 weeks. LIES. After terrible complications - a deviated esophagus, requirement to stay on a liquid diet, severe weight loss, a second and third surgery, constant throat pain, voice changes, etc, I found out the plate takes YEARS to disolve. These were not the risks I was told about! The plate 'bent' after another vertebre cracked during surgery and I have yet to recover. Be careful when considering SPINE SURGERY! If he had even apologized or offered to help... Instead, in his office notes he states "XXXX returns AGAIN" I ultimatly had to find a new doctor.
