About Me

“My philosophy has always been to treat others like you want to be treated – The Golden Rule that embraces compassionate care for all. My goal is to educate and collaborate with each patient to create treatment plans that will improve their life and decrease pain and suffering.”

Linda Pearson, MD is a board-certified specialist in pain medicine, anesthesiology, medical acupuncture and addiction medicine. 

Dr. Pearson earned a Doctor of Medicine degree from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Medical School in San Antonio, Texas. She served an anesthesiology residency at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine/Scott and White Healthcare in Temple, Texas and a pain medicine fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Her clinical focus at Houston Methodist The Woodlands is on pain management and medical acupuncture. Her expertise encompasses comprehensive pain management, including spine injections, epidural steroid injections, medial branch blocks, sympathetic nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulation implants, among others.

Dr. Pearson’s philosophy is to focus on the “whole patient” to ensure her patients’ physical and mental health are optimized while dealing with acute or chronic pain.  She enjoys working with patients to help them live a happy and healthy life.

Dr. Pearson also has a special interest in nutrition and fitness for health. She is fluent in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their young daughter – especially exercising together as a family.
