Jacqueline T. Pearson, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Of greatest importance to me is the well-being of my patients. I believe in efforts toward preventive medical care, striving to keep patients off medications if possible. When medications, medical technology or referral to medical specialists is necessary, I realize that careful consideration to choose only the best for my patients is of paramount importance. I work very hard to nurture an effective doctor-patient relationship and gain a great deal of joy from sharing laughter with my patients.
