Ratings for Dr. Blake Pearson
Dr. Pearson performed a lumbar microdiskectomy on my back. For a week or two, everything was fine - normal post-op soreness. But when my back pain came back a few weeks later, all he did was send me for an mri and tell me it wasn't related to my surgery. I don't doubt his ability as a surgeon, but as a caregiver and, well, a functional human being I find him lacking. He treated me like an annoyance every time I saw him. I was in the building seeing my pain doctor and I went to his office to schedule an appointment after a fall to see if I might have messed up the work he did on my back and was told that I couldn't make an appointment by coming to the office. When I finally heard back from his office two days later, I was told to go see my pain doctor first. My orthopedic doctor and my pain doctor both think it's my back. But Dr. Pearson apparently is too important to accept other doctors opinions. I will never use the cocky douchebag again.
If anyone is considering any type of surgery related to the spine, I would recommend Dr Pearson without any reservation. Dr Pearson took the time to explain the procedure and answer all questions. He took the time to go over my MRI and explain what he would be doing and how. My post surgery experience was painless and I had absolutely no discomfort. I was able to eat lunch and dinner the day of my surgery without any problems. I recommend Dr Pearson very highly.
I have unfortunately had multiple spine surgeries from lower back to neck. I work in the medical industry and was recommended to Dr. Pearson by an Orthopeadics surgeon. Dr. Pearson and his staff were phenomenal in every area of the practice and surgery. I saw a negative post by someone else and took it as disturbing. Every patient is different and every doctor is not the same. As someone who has had many surgeries, I would put Dr. Pearson at the top and would highly recommend him for anyone needing the services of a neurosurgeon.
I had a microdiscomy that Dr.Pearson said I never would have anymore trouble with. He was very cocky about how good he was. Well it last about 3-4 weeks and I was in terrible pain.It was at L4, exactly where I had the surgery. I went back and he sent me for therapy which didn't help. He sent me for another MRI and said pain was coming from my hip,that there was nothing wrong with my back.After going to a hip doctor and him ordering another MRI,found out my L4 nerve root was impinged.I had to have a fusion at L4. Dr.Pearson just sent me on down the road and he knew after the last MRI that he ordered that I had impingement and the disc was herniated because I went to the hospital and got the MRI report and it tells it in black and white.Shame on you doctor,you caused me a lot of pain and suffering.
I can't say enough how grateful I am to Dr. Pearson, he saved my husbands life! When no other doctor believed my husbands symptoms Dr Pearson saw that he had spinal stenosis and scheduled emergency surgery a few days later. My husband is now getting movement in his legs and beginning to walk with a walker. His whole body was becoming paralyzed and organs shutting down and the neurologist he was seeing for two years just wanted to send him to a pain clinic! I'm so thankful to God most of all for leading us to Dr. Pearson!
Dr. Pearson is a rarity among medical professionals, highly capable and caring at the same time. I was diagnosed with a rare congenital condition in my spine at age 47. Finding someone to perform this surgery on me as an adult was challenging. We visited several different surgeons in the Birmingham area and even spoke with docs as far away as San Francisco. Dr. Pearson received flawless recommendations from every reference. He was cautious with my diagnosis, making me fully aware of possible complications from surgery. Dr. Pearson, along with Dr. Haynes, spent 8 hours performing my surgery. The first face I was when I woke up was Dr. Pearson asking if I could wiggle my toes. You should have seen the smile on his face when I did! There was no doubt in my mind that he was fully invested in my well being. Both docs had smiles on their faces every time they entered my hospital room and the one post op phone call I had to make was answered by Dr. Haynes instantaneously.
Dr. Pearson and his staff are great. I found him through researching doctors on websites such as this one. I scheduled my appt, he evaluated me and listened to my problems. I scheduled a minimally invasive microdiscectomy, and couldn't have found a better doctor. I live over 2 hrs away and he and his staff were very accommodating to that. I went to other neurosurgeons closer to home and was treated poorly. The kind of doctors who have that "god" complex. Dr. Pearson is the complete opposite. If you are looking for a neurosurgeon, you couldn't be in better hands.
My back has given me problems for years. I was referred to Dr. Pearson who met with me, gave me diagnosis and choices of how to correct problems. There was no pressure and his bedside manner is amazing. He accurately diagnosed the problems, corrected them through surgery and gave me outstanding advice. I had surgery yesterday and can now sit up, walk and am out of the pain I was in (still sore and stiff from surgery tho). He spent time listening and talking with me during each visit.
