Carl Izsak, Forest Hills, NY  partial knee replacement
I would like to thank Dr. Pearle for the wonderful job he has done. I am a 70 year old dentist and I was ready to give up my profession due to severe knee pain. Then I found Dr. Pearle and after our first meeting I was confident he was the right doctor for me. The procedure and the outcome are perfect. The partial knee replacement is as close to the real knee as it can be-I should know this, since I have a total knee replacement on my right knee and there is just no comparison. Thank you so much. I had a wonderful experience with the doctor, his staff and the hospital.
