I really cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Pereira and the entire experience we had in his office / with his staff. He listened to our concerns, had wonderful bed-side manner, and made himself available whenever we needed something or had a question. We felt so taken care of and in good hands the entire time. We also had a strange insurance setup and Dr. Pereira was willing to be flexible and help us only have appointments when we definitively needed to be seen. I really, truly could not recommend Dr. Pereira more.

We struggled with multiple miscarriages and came to Dr P to explore other options. Before we started treatment he explained causes of miscarriages in ways that were encouraging to us - we were scared as you can imagine but Dr P gave us the confidence that we would eventually meet our future baby. We ended up choosing IVF and Dr P was incredible throughout the entire experience. He was responsive and patient with all my crazy questions and when there were true issues he was right on top of things. We ended up having such a successful IVF outcome, likely due to Dr P’s skill and knowledge as a fertility specialist. We became pregnant on our first transfer and have welcomed our first baby to this world about a year after our initial visit with Dr P. We are incredibly grateful for him.

We found Dr. Pereira after reading lots of reviews online. From the outset he gave us a detailed explanation of our options and counseled us through the process. After almost 3.5 years of trying to conceive naturally with his help we were able to get pregnant. Thank you Dr. Pereira.

Dr. Pereira is incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. His bedside manner is patient, kind, responsive, and comforting. After an emotional year of trying to conceive following a devastating miscarriage, Dr. Pereira carefully explained all of our options and next steps on our way to conceiving. He tended to every office visit and surgical appointment with sensitivity and the highest level of care. Dr. Pereira was a constant source of encouragement throughout our journey and was the first to congratulate us after we successfully conceived in January 2019.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Pereira and the staff at Tribeca office. It is such an emotional experience going through infertility treatments and Dr. Pereira makes you feel so nurtured during each step of the process. He is patient with questions, gentle with your feelings and invested in your goal and protocol. He and the staff take the time to get to know you so each time you walk in the door, it feels like you are greeted by friends. Most importantly, Dr. Pereira does not give you false hope but real hope. He never gave up on us and was always ready with the next step in our journey. It was bittersweet to leave Dr. Pereira for an OB when my husband and I got pregnant. He really is the best!

Dr Pereira was an amazing doctor and confidant as my husband and I explored different options to get pregnant. The strides that we have made since our first appointment, when I broke down in tears in his office, to now, being pregnant, is testament to the knowledge and devotion Dr Pereira gave us during our time with him. I’m honestly sad to leave his office, but obviously our departure is under the best circumstances and we are thrilled with the results that he got us. The wait times get long during monitoring hours-try to get there earlier-and the billing can be frustrating on the NYP hospital side (Weill has always been timely and responsive with their billing).

Dr. Pereira was the first doctor that I did not dread having to visit. He was so gentle, understanding, and transparent. Not only is he wonderful, but his staff were wonderful as well. After I became pregnant, Dr. Pereira made some lovely recommendations of OBGYNs I could start seeing. My last appointment at the office I remember having to say goodbye to Karla and Kristin and feeling so sad! I can't recommend Dr. Pereira enough, he is one of a kind.

Dr. Pereira is one in a million. His staff at this clinic are prompt, super efficient and very friendly. He is so thorough and knowledgeable I can't think of anyone better to take you through the difficult journey that is infertility. Even when I was ready to give up, he keeps you going with a clear plan and specific steps to take you to your goal. His personality and warm demeanor makes everything so much more manageable. My husband and I are truly grateful for all his time and efforts. We would always recommend him to anyone looking for a honest and practical doctor.
