Pearl.com started in 2003 when Andy Kurtzig and his wife Sara were expecting their first child. Like most new parents, they had a million questions for their doctor – day and night. But the doctor had time to talk to them only at their appointments. So Andy created a site to provide answers from doctors and other professionals at any time.

After helping more than 5 million people access professionals, the company rebranded as Pearl.com in 2012 as part of our commitment to go beyond a simple question and answer format. On Pearl.com, customers have one-on-one online conversations with doctors, lawyers, and more than 170 types of professionals, each one verified and specially selected with quality in mind. We look forward to helping millions more people access professionals online.
