About

Bio

Gurney F. Pearsall, Jr., M.D. is a highly trained physician in the fields of Stem Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, Orthomolecular & IV Chelation Therapy, Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Medicine, Surgery and Family Medicine. “I work very closely with my Wife and Business Partner, Dr. Marina Pearsall. By working together, we are able to offer a well rounded and complete Total Body Rejuvenation. Our patients are able to enjoy the inner beauty brought on by Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement and Ideal Weight Control under the supervision of Dr. Marina Pearsall. I complete the process by overseeing the Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Protocols, Environmental Detoxification Component (IV Chelation) and aid in the correction of external blemishes through my work in Aesthetic Medicine. For me, Restorative Medicine is more than a wrinkle cream or Laser Treatment. Restorative Medicine is a healthy philosophy that is placed into practice.”
