[Dr. Peress] kept me on BC for down regulation for 2 months, which yielded far less eggs than we should have gotten, he had us wait 4-5 days for abstinence with my husbands sperm prior to our ICSI, which we found out is a huge no no with MFI...He doesn’t think outside the box or try to help your specific cause of infertility which made us feel like just a number to them...He insisted that DNA FRAG is a moot point, which is not the case according to the MFI expert we saw
12 eggs, 11 mature, 7 fertilized, 2 poor quality blasts...[BocaFertility IVF Center] Strengths: Nice location, the embryologist is the best part about this place. Weaknesses: cold staff, doctor who doesn’t stay up to date on research, care provided in a way that’s convenient for the clinic (I.e: BC for 2 months to fit their schedule when it shouldn’t be more than 2 weeks for a healthy female with no reproductive issues), major ego issue, threatened by other healthcare providers.
How was your experience with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
I am a healthcare provider. Steer clear of this clinic. Unfortunately, they do not keep up with the latest science and do not do any extra research on your specific cause of infertility. He states he follows ASRM guidelines, but he doesn’t follow the new research. He kept me on BC for down regulation for 2 months, which yielded far less eggs than we should have gotten, he had us wait 4-5 days for abstinence with my husbands sperm prior to our ICSI, which we found out is a huge no no with MFI. He insisted that DNA FRAG is a moot point, which is not the case according to the MFI expert we saw after receiving care at this clinic. Every doc we’ve seen since has kind of laughed at this clinic— apologized that we wasted our time here and that they use outdated science and could be helping their patients more. I was heart broken by the way he handled my concerns over the way our cycle went. They slandered me in my medical record, it was a horrific and traumatizing experience. Please steer clear and seek care elsewhere.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Please seek care elsewhere if you want your absolute best chance at having a baby. Not up to date with the latest science.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Dr Peress and his team is not up to date with the most current science. He doesn’t think outside the box or try to help your specific cause of infertility which made us feel like just a number to them.
Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
IVF for severe MFI: OAT syndrome with high DNA frag husband was 31 at the time. Healthy female, 29 Normal AMH, and hormone panel for me. AFC 22, AMH ~4 Birth control down regulation FOR 2 MONTHS WHICH IS ANOTHER NO NO FOR ANYONE AND CAN CAUSE OVER-SUPPRESSION OF THE OVARIES. 12-13 day stims with menopur, gonal, and centreotide I believe. 4.5 day abstinence for my husband, ANOTHER HUGE NO NO IN MFI. 12 eggs, 11 mature, 7 fertilized, 2 poor quality blasts. 1st implant= CP Afterward, Saw a specialist we had been waiting for months to see who told us immediately to find a new doctor after hearing the protocol.
Describe your experience with your nurse at BocaFertility IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Amy was kind)
The front desk ladies were a bit cold. The staff were all a bit cold, and Sharon, the patient experience member was an absolute nightmare. If you have concerns about your care, you’re better off just going to a new clinic than bringing them up to her. She was derogatory and discriminatory toward me because I am a healthcare provider. She was incredibly unprofessional and I cannot believe how disrespectful she was toward my husband and I. It was the worst experience I’ve ever had with someone who was supposed to be an ally. AVOID THIS CLINIC.
Describe your experience with BocaFertility IVF Center.
Strengths: Nice location, the embryologist named Patricia is the best part about this place. Weaknesses: cold staff, doctor who doesn’t stay up to date on research, care provided in a way that’s convenient for the clinic (I.e: BC for 2 months to fit their schedule when it shouldn’t be more than 2 weeks for a healthy female with no reproductive issues), major ego issue, threatened by other healthcare providers.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center.
MORE EXPENSIVE THAN ANY OTHER CLINIC WHICH MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE. I don’t remember the exact numbers but I’m pretty sure we paid around $30k for our cycle, which was handled SO wrongly for our specific case of infertility. Then they wanted another $6k to implant our second embryo, which was made with bad sperm. AVOID THIS MONEY PIT.
Describe Moshe Peress's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at BocaFertility IVF Center.
They advised I do both embryos because the quality was so low. I elected to do one at a time.

Despite being a patient at this practice for years, the doctor [Dr. Moshe Peress] couldn’t recall personal or medical details about me or my partner from appointment to appointment. “How old are you again?” “How many embryos did we transfer again?” Having to answer these questions after an embryo transfer that ended in miscarriage was especially difficult...I also feel that he missed things that should have been diagnosed.
This clinic [BocaFertility IVF Center] performed standard fertility testing for my husband and I, and the nurses were always kind, but I do not feel that we received personalized attention and treatment. We experienced pregnancy loss twice as patients here and were encouraged to try again without further testing. We moved on to a different doctor and had success...Amy [nurse] was available to answer questions via email or text. I appreciated her kindness but also felt she was dismissive of my concerns....
How was your experience with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
I thought seeing a single doctor at each appointment would have been a positive thing, but I don’t feel that the treatment I received was personalized to my/my partner’s infertility needs. I also feel that he missed things that should have been diagnosed. He encouraged us to try to get pregnant without treatment despite the condition of my Fallopian Tubes and we experienced an ectopic pregnancy. We then moved onto IVF and had a miscarriage. In the months following my loss, I sought a second opinion and numerous problems (PCOS that affected egg quality, a TSH/Thyroid level triple of what it should be in a healthy pregnancy, my partner and I both being carriers for a genetic disorder) were discovered that Dr. Peress had missed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Seek a second opinion before moving forward with treatment!

Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
In my IVF cycle, my partner and I were not given any specifics for vitamins or supplements to improve egg and sperm quality. This was addressed at other practices. I injected Gonal F and Menopur during my IVF cycle and used Estrogen patches and Progesterone in oil to support the pregnancy after the embryo transfer.

He [Moshe Peress] explained everything and detail and was happy to do so. Sometimes it difficult to ask questions because you don't want to"bother" your doctor however with Dr. Moshe it was different. Even during my ultrasound he explained everything on the screen to me and the next step without even asking. I ended up having to have a procedure in the office done and Dr. Moshe walked me through the whole procedure which really helped ease my nerves. He is very understanding and very straight forward as well. He explained the chances and the risks etc.
Xiomara [nurse] was great. She explained everything in detail from day one and provided clear instructions both written and verbal. Xiomara always responded to my emails within hours. ... I called my OB's office to confirm that they had received the records and they had not. I had to call Dr. Moshe's office and ask them to fax the records which did not arrive. Finally I asked them to email me my records which I brought myself to my OB's office visit.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Ask questions no matter how many they are or how stupid you may think it is. This is a huge decision and you should not feel like you are not allowed to ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
From the moment we walked into the office we were greeted with a smile. Once registration was done they moved us into Dr. Moshe's office for the consultation and we were offered hot tea while. Dr. Moshe greeted us and got to know us first before he began the consultation. His nurse Xiomara, is amazing. She not only called us throughout the whole process but would email me to check up on me. Every time I had a question I would email her and I would always receive a prompt reply. After our first cycle failed we needed to take some time to ourselves. We received beautiful follow up cards from Dr. Moshe and his team to let us know they are thinking about us. We felt like they really cared about us, we did not feel like a number with Dr. Moshe and his team. They were awesome.
Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Moshe told us that my husband had male factor. He recommended 2-3 IUI cycles since we are young but did tell us that our best to chance would probably be IVF. I ordered my medications and contacted Xiomara one day one of my menses. She reviewed the instructions I had received prior to the meds arriving. I had oral, vaginal suppositories and injections to take and followed the instructions. I also had to go in for monitoring which including blood work and ultrasounds at Dr. Moshe's office. Then after the last ultrasound they scheduled the first treatment of IUI which happened to fall on a weekend. The only thing I was not happy about was that Dr. Moshe himself did not do the IUI treatment and I was not made aware. One of his nurses did it that weekend and she was the only one there. Therefore she also did the the sperm washing and it made me feel uneasy to be honest.
Describe your experience with your nurse at BocaFertility IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Xiomara )
Xiomara was great. She explained everything in detail from day one and provided clear instructions both written and verbal. Xiomara always responded to my emails within hours. After our first IUI cycle failed we decided to take some time to ourselves and we periodically received beautiful cards from Xiomara and the rest of the team letting us know they are thinking about us.
Describe your experience with BocaFertility IVF Center.
The clinic is very clean and spotless. The lobby is beautiful and they have a candy bowl and cucumber water in the lobby for the patients. In general everyone is nice and greets you when you are in the back. The front desk staff is very nice and answers your questions and directs you while you are there. The clinic has the bathrooms pretty stocked up with feminine products making it both convenient and stress free while you are there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center.
I believe the cost of the IUI treatment was close to 1500, the medicine alone was about 1000. That does not include my specialist copay I had for every visit, ultrasound, blood work and other procedures.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at BocaFertility IVF Center.
I requested that my medical records be sent to my OB. It was very important for her to have my records before my visit since I had procedures done with Dr. Moshe that I needed to review with her. The day prior to the visit I called my OB's office to confirm that they had received the records and they had not. I had to call Dr. Moshe's office and ask them to fax the records which did not arrive. Finally I asked them to email me my records which I brought myself to my OB's office visit.

did one frozen cycle with donor eggs due to advanced age [with Dr. Peress]. And was successful. Had my twins and could not be happier...is not only a great doctor but also very compassionate and professional. He is honest and gives you a real sense that he cares. However, at first he will be more about the science and very factual. He covers all possibilities and aspects of your treatment very thoroughly.
nurses and staff [at Boca Fertility] were professional and compassionate...had intolerance to sunflower oil for progesterone injections. And I found I always had to remind the nurse or drug company that we dealt with...IUI $2,500-$3,500 IVF-$15,000-$20,000 Donor egg-$30K...Strengths: patient care, professionalism, organized, compassionate, understanding... I don't know if it would be considered a weakness but having done a nutrional panel and more thorough blood work with an integrative doctor did helped me get my body in synch for future treatments with Dr. Peress. So, I suppose having the convenience of having that done with him would have been nice. But at the same time having another doctors opinion available did make me feel confident in going back to Dr. Peress for my last and final successful treatment.

WE tried 2 or 3 IUI's at age 41-42 ; followed by two IVF's with own eggs, he did mention my thyroid was slightly elevated which may have been the cause for unsuccessful treatments -but at the time did not want to go on synthroid. Took a year off after last failed IVF , went to an integrative doctor that put me on armour thyroid and checked on nutritional panel etc, went back to Dr. Peress and did one frozen cycle with donor eggs due to advanced age.

Resulted in a negative test.

He [Dr. Moshe Peress] is caring and kind in a human way, but also very honest...He did not recommend PGS because of my previous experience of the embryos dissolving. I had a thin lining, so we froze both embryos in order to build up my lining using estrogen and baby aspirin. Once he felt that my lining was adequate, he transferred one embryo... Dr. Peress recommended that if we do not experience a natural pregnancy within a few months, we will try IUI with extra folic acid and more estrogen. We plan to try that within the next few months.
nurses and staff [at BocaFertility IVF Center] treated me like I was a member of their family. They were honest and caring. They celebrated with me when I found out I was pregnant, and grieved with me when I miscarried...I believe my IVF cycle cost around $18,000 plus some extra meds. The first transfer was included in that price. The second transfer was an additional $5,000 plus meds...This clinic met my expectations above and beyond what I thought was possible. From the moment you walk in the door, they are friendly and organized. The office is clean and the nurses and staff are 100% professional. They consider your physical, emotional, and financial needs, and will do anything they can do make this incredibly stressful experience as comfortable and successful as possible.
How was your experience with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Dr. Peress is smart, thoughtful, warm, and compassionate. He will tell you if he feels that the chances are slim, and give you ideas of what he thinks would be the best course of treatment without making you feel stupid or in the dark. He will always be honest - good or bad, and will always give you the care you need on a personal level. The fact that he tries to be at EVERY single ultrasound made me feel like a human being and reassured that he was doing everything he could to make my cycle successful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
He might be blunt, but he has seen everything and he wants you to be successful, not just to take your money and break your heart. He is caring and kind in a human way, but also very honest.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Dr. Peress and his nurses and staff treated me like I was a member of their family. They were honest and caring. They celebrated with me when I found out I was pregnant, and grieved with me when I miscarried. Dr. Peress is warm and caring in a field where I've found doctors that were exactly the opposite.
Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Peress with a previous diagnosis of Diminished Ovarian Reserve and a horrible experience at a different clinic where I had 7 embryos dissolve before reaching the PGS stage. He recommended IVF with ICSI. I went through my stim cycle and he retrieved 8 eggs. There were 3 embryos formed, and by day 5, one had dissolved. They froze one embryo on Day 5, and one on Day 6. He did not recommend PGS because of my previous experience of the embryos dissolving. I had a thin lining, so we froze both embryos in order to build up my lining using estrogen and baby aspirin. Once he felt that my lining was adequate, he transferred one embryo. The embryo implanted, and I found out I was pregnant for the first time! We did progesterone injections intramuscularly for the week before the transfer, and throughout the entire pregnancy. At our 6 week ultrasound, we did hear a heartbeat, but Dr. Peress was unhappy with the size of the embryo and felt that it would stop growing. It did, and on week 7, the heartbeat was gone. Dr. Peress recommended a D&C, and sent the embryo for genetic testing. The lab came back that the embryo had Trisomy 16, and would most likely not have made it past birth if it did make it that far. We did see the miscarriage as a blessing. We took a break to try to relieve my body from the hormones and my brain from all of the stress. About 6 months later, we decided to transfer the second embryo. We did, and again, success! However, again at about 7 weeks, the embryo stopped growing, and at about 9 weeks, no heartbeat. We again had a D&C, but this time, the embryo came back NORMAL. My OBGYN sent me for a thrombophilia workup, and the blood tests all came back normal, except that I had low folic acid. That takes us to now. We have been trying on our own, and Dr. Peress recommended that if we do not experience a natural pregnancy within a few months, we will try IUI with extra folic acid and more estrogen. We plan to try that within the next few months.
Describe your experience with your nurse at BocaFertility IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Amy Svorninich)

Amy is honest and will tell me everything I need to know. She is like a friend while also always being professional. She will go above and beyond to help you try to get pregnant!

Things changed after that though....During my HSG I was all alone in the room because of radiation and he didn't even wait for me to be sitting up straight before he said, "You'll never get pregnant, you'll have to do IVF." (My tubes were blocked and diseased apparently) I was devastated and didn't have my support with me in the room and had the iodine oozing out of me as I tried not to cry.
I felt like I saw a different nurse [BocaFertility] each time and talked to different people on the phone each time. Once someone (a receptionist?) came in with a dog and it kept barking and the nurses were yelling at her and each other. It just seemed very hectic....The overall ambiance is nice, they play calming music and advertise an app for meditation. Everything is clean and nice looking. They provide toiletries in the bathroom and it is nicely decorated so you don't feel like you're in a creepy hospital bathroom. They offer "fertili-tea" which is cute when you have your first appointment.
How was your experience with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
I knew many people who loved Dr. Peress. I personally felt like he was very impatient with me after my initial visit. During my HSG I was all alone in the room because of radiation and he didn't even wait for me to be sitting up straight before he said, "You'll never get pregnant, you'll have to do IVF." (My tubes were blocked and diseased apparently) I was devastated and didn't have my support with me in the room and had the iodine oozing out of me as I tried not to cry. I wasn't expecting that news at all-it was a complete shock and he was not compassionate in the least. I came back and did my SIS and he found cysts and polyps but told me he would just "clean it up when we started IVF" and seemed impatient with my questions. My husband and I had a final 3rd appointment to talk about everything and ask questions. I asked why I still had regular periods if my eggs weren't going into my uterus and he was really short with me and just repeated, "You DON'T have regular periods." which didn't make sense to me because I got a period ever 28 days and previous bloodwork showed I 'ovulated' so I just didn't understand. He didn't have my egg quality or genetics tested and just said I would have to do IVF. Before we left he had an embryologist talk to my husband and I about changing our diet and losing weight and that maybe that would work 'miracles' for us. It was very awkward considering I had been told my tubes were blocked and diseased and there were cysts and polyps that would hinder pregnancy as well. We left feeling confused and hurt and we didn't go back.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
I'm sure he's good at what he does but be prepared for bluntness and little compassion.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
I loved our initial meeting and drinking "fertili-tea." I felt like he cared at the very beginning, first meeting. Things changed after that though.
Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
I didn't follow through with any treatments-just diagnosis tests with Dr. Peress.

We were told it was around $20,000 and that we should wait until we had insurance coverage with my husband's job because she "knew someone who worked there and had the insurance." She didn't actually look it up to give us accurate information.
Describe Moshe Peress's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at BocaFertility IVF Center.
I know there are embryologists in the clinic at Boca Fertility which is different than other clinics but I don't remember Dr. Peress's approach.
What specific things went wrong at BocaFertility IVF Center?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
Describe the specific things that went wrong at BocaFertility IVF Center.
I wanted my records sent to another doctor and I felt like I had to jump through hoops of having the other clinic 'request' the records but also me 'sending' the records. It was just a little complicated. I also had different nurses call me to tell me results but one told me I needed bloodwork and the other didn't. They obviously weren't communicating to each other.

Dr. Peress is the only doctor in this clinic, which I thought would be a good thing. He is just too busy. I truly believe he uses the same protocol for every patient no matter what the diagnosis. He never explained the why just that I needed IVF and handed me a packet with billing information. When asking questions regarding tailoring the plan to my diminished ovarian reserve, he just said, “I don’t do that.” He never explained why, which left me feeling confused and not very confident.
The clinic [Boca Fertility] is beautiful. I would say “spa like” in appearance. They even served tea at our first appointment which was super special feeling. After that, I felt like a stranger every time I went in.... The nurse failed to call me after my first beta test. I knew it was negative but it still would’ve been nice to get an official call... Our IUI’s were about $400 each. I was on infectable meds so that increased the price as well.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
The first visit was lovely, I was even served tea. The following appointments he was clueless as to my plan of care. He even forgot what he told me two days before. He even asked me,”Who told you that?” When I responded, “you did!” He asked the nurse to confirm and sure enough it was written in my chart.
Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
I was on clomid for 5 days followed by 4 injections of Gonal-F (I want to say 75mg). I only had 2 follicles.

Not a lot of sensitivity and compassion at this clinic.

Dr. Peress is very intelligent and pragmatic while still being sensitive to his patients. He has alot of experience and has the tendency of most veteran physicians to not explain every single detail but convey the general course and purpose of treatment. You get the feeling that everything is being handled and you shouldn't over analyze every detail. He answers questions with great confidence and doesn't sugarcoat things -- but he's not cold either. He saw me through a natural m/c, 3 failed IUI's and a vanishing twin, and he was sensitive to all of those situations.
they [The nurses at BocaFertility IVF Center] were definitely sensitive to everything. You get to know everyone by name there and it feels like a team or family rooting you on...Strengths are that it's a smaller clinic so you get to know everyone and they get to know you -- and you are not passed around to different doctors. Weaknesses would be that since it is a single RE clinic, you may not get different opinions on treatment unless you seek them out elsewhere. It's definitely important to be your own advocate but to also trust the doctor's experience. It's perfect for patients who want a more "hands off" approach (they don't want to analyze every detail of the cycles) but might be frustrating to someone who really wants to know all of the details and reasoning behind treatments.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
Ask questions if you have any! Some people might feel he doesn't explain what it's going on with the treatment in as great detail as they might like, but he's happy to provide more detailed insight if you ask questions. He just doesn't want the patient to stress out over the medical nuances and reasoning -- that's his job. He's much more of an old school physician who gives you the feeling everything is going to be handled.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center?
I felt like everyone in the clinic knew me and was rooting for me -- it's smaller so you get to know the staff and doctor very well. By the time of my IVF cycle, they knew me by name and now when I drop by with my little girl to say hi, they all are excited and happy to see us. It felt more like they were my team rather than just healthcare providers.
Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
He called the IUI cycles mini-stim/ovulation induction --- we did those first since we were unexplained. I only went through 1 IVF cycle and went with his basic protocol since there was no reason to think anything needed to be changed (I had responded well during the IUI cycles). We did a freeze-all cycle since he recommended frozen transfers over fresh; he feels they are providing better results to his patients. The medications used during the IVF cycle were pretty standard -- Gonal-F, follistim, pregnyl trigger shot, etc. Same for the FET cycle -- menopur, estrogen patches, progesterone oil, etc. I did end up being allergic to the progesterone oil and they quickly changed it to a special compounded one with ethyl oleate rather than sesame oils.
Describe your experience with your nurse at BocaFertility IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
Amy is smart but very sensitive to her patients. She was quick to communicate results, directions and to offer reassurance. The other nursing staff were also friendly and reassuring, and they were definitely sensitive to everything. You get to know everyone by name there and it feels like a team or family rooting you on.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Moshe Peress at BocaFertility IVF Center.
Each IUI cycle ended up to be around 3k with meds included; the IVF cycle was around 10k for the retrieval and transfer clinic fees (1 transfer) plus another 7k for the meds and another 1k or so for anesthesia during the transfer. I felt the costs were reasonable in comparison to other clinics. Additional transfers could be done at 2.6k.
Describe Moshe Peress's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at BocaFertility IVF Center.
Single transfer was recommended but I asked to do a double transfer and they agreed to it. I was given information of the risks of multiples, etc.

Every visit, the doctor [Dr. Moshe Peress] came in to say hello and see how you were feeling and give you a hug. He would follow by saying “kindness makes a happy woman, and a happy woman means happy healthy eggs!”...is so professional and personable at the same time. He upholds a zen, peaceful atmosphere for his patients and his staff.. where you really feel as comfortable as you would around your own family... I had to be monitored every other day (due to super high follicle count from PCOS) in order to avoid Ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome.
I have zero complaints [at BocaFertility IVF Center]. They are organized and well managed, amazing bed side manner and even utilize any extra space they have to give patients complimentary fertility massages if they were undergoing treatment at the time...They [nurses] were always prompt with bringing you back for your appointments, gentle when drawing blood. Also were calm, gentle, understanding and thorough when it came to explaining procedures, results, or answering questions.

Describe the protocols Moshe Peress used in your cycles at BocaFertility IVF Center and their degree of success.
Both cycles I used follistim and/or gonal-f injectables. I had to be monitored every other day (due to super high follicle count from PCOS) in order to avoid Ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome. After about 10-14 days of injections, I was given an ovidrel trigger shot and brought in the next day for IUI. First round we had two strong matured follicles that did unfortunately not end in pregnancy, and the second round of IUI resulted in my only son and miracle child.

I was well informed [by Dr. Moshe Peress] of the pros and the cons [Eset]. I was able to make my own decision about the transfer of one or two embryos...is clearly a very experienced doctor. He can be a little quiet at times but answers all my questions with full explanations. He always shook my hand upon entering the room. He has excellent bedside manner...He will make sure that everything is answered and that you feel comfortable.
The clinic [BocaFertility IVF Center] was always very clean and has a spa like feel and appearance. The office is very comforting, soothing, and relaxing.

I was surprised at the way he encouraged questions from us, and he took his time explaining. He used a projection screen to show us things. He wants us to understand the process. He also is laid back in a very good way. He didn't make me feel stressed or anxious, his calm demeaner is one of the things I noticed first.
This clinic [BocaFertility IVF Center] makes you feel important to them. They sent out a follow-up thank you card. It was a nice added touch that made me feel remembered.

IVF journey is a struggle, so finding a practice that makes u feel like ur not a number shouldn’t be.

[Doctor Peress] was always travelling and not available during all ultrasounds...Was totally against transferring more than one embryo...Did not explain why IVF failed Did not inform us of male factor until 3 months after test results and after polypectomy They wasted so much of our time and they referred us to a urologist to put us on clomid which messed everything up The egg retrieval recovery was painful I ended up in the ER because of hyperstimulation they did not dose my meds carefully according to estrogen level

Doctor Peress is very professional with his work. I never knew what to expect before I went there (im happy I didn't). When we got there Dr. Peress make sure that you understand everything that is going on before you go on to the next step. He made everything very smooth with the procedures.
From the moment we step in the office we felt welcome and comfortable... The atomepher is clean and makes you feel comfortable. Before you see your doctor you will be in the waiting room and if you was all worked up, by the time you see your doctor you will be nice and relaxed.

After two years of trying, we had know luck of getting pregnant. So we started to do some research and asking friends for recommendation. We were giving a list of a few fertility doctor's and in there words 'top to bottom best to worst' and of course I want the best. Boca Fertility was on the top of the list. I still did my research and saw nothing but good reviews, I called and set-up and appointment for my husband and I to see Dr. Peress. From the moment we step in the office we felt welcome and comfortable. Everyone I dealt with in that office is very professional with everything they did. I was very nerves I was going to mess up but, the nurses are so helpful and if I didn't understand they were more than happy to make sure I understood. I am so thankful and grateful I found Boca Fertility, they made my husband and I the happiest people alive. I will recommend them to anyone.
Describe your experience with your nurse at BocaFertility IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Amy )

I did get educated about doing one embryo or 2 and everything made sense. My first try I did 1 and it didn't work but the next time I did 2 and one caught.

[Dr. Moshe Peress] Had tea with us during consult and was straightforward and honest on his thoughts of our best way to achieve a pregnancy. Did not rush us and answered all of our questions. He performed all ultrasounds and procedures...Best treatment for me was donor eggs due to age and ovarian reserve bring diminished. I was able to get 9 great embryos and so far had one put in which did not work:
Love the small office feel and that all procedures are done onsite [at BocaFerility IVF Center]. Only had to deal with my doctor [Dr. Moshe Peress]...He performed all ultrasounds and procedures...Dealt with one nurse...was able to personally speak and meet with the embryologist to discuss our embryos. Played relaxing music and diffuser lavender in room during transfer...It was about 15k plus the cost of meds...

[Dr. Peress] Never would explain anything and would just repeat “I’m not god just do it again” and only spend 2 minutes with us...My last embryo transfer he dropped the catheter multiple times, the embryo was stuck in the catheter 4 times, took 2 hours, he told me a white dot on the ultrasound screen was the embryo and in the catheter still...
I some times had to follow up but most of the time they [nurses of BocaFertility IVF Center] were great and on top of it...[clinic error] They forgot to bring in my embryo the morning of my transfer so it was complete chaos trying to get it in on time...Strength was some nice staff and a beautiful office space

He is aging out of his career. My last embryo transfer he dropped the catheter multiple times, the embryo was stuck in the catheter 4 times, took 2 hours, he told me a white dot on the ultrasound screen was the embryo and in the catheter still. And after everything he shrugged and said “well I’m not god, we’ll just do it again if it did not work”

I was using him [Dr. Moshe Peress] as my consultant so it was just a standard copay of 50.00 a visit...was very informative and tried to be as honest as he could through my whole preganacy. He made sure I felt comfortable and even gave us his cell number in case we needed it. He was at every appointment that I had and continued to make sure I was checked up on every week as things were progressing.
The team of nurses [at Boca Fertility IVF Center] were wonderful to me...Very well kept and very peaceful which is nice during the stressful experience. They have beach sounds and manatees swimming. Everyone is very pleasant as soon as you get there. I never felt uncomfortable with waiting and my appointments were taken on time...They were wonderful and always returned my calls

Dr. Perress did all my fertility testing before helping us reach our decision to choose IVF. He met with us and discussed the process. He is not in a rush to get you through the process, he takes his time with meds, freezing embryos, etc...is agreeable to transferring up to two embryos...I have been a patient of Dr. Perress for a while now. I have had multiple setbacks in my fertility journey. Dr. Perress was there and continues to be there each step of the way. Each appointment he greets me with a smile and encourages me through the process.
There are only amazing things to say about Boca Fertility. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with the smiling face of Barbara and relaxing music playing in the background. Each and every nurse calls you by name and reassures you though the process. I have personally had the pleasure of working with Veronica, Xiomara, Ceara, Jennie and Amy. Each and every one of them is amazing. The Embryologists Patricia and Dr. Matilsky are also amazing. The special touches in the office are also well appreciated. Sharon takes particular attention to provide each patient with the extras. I truly value each person who has cheered me on through my fertility journey and feel that they have all become a part of my family. I don’t want to graduate.

Describe your experience with your nurse at BocaFertility IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
I cannot day enough about Amy. She has been with me since day 1 of my IVF journey. She is accessible to me (and my husband) whenever we need her. She is just a call or text message away. I would not have made it to where I am in my journey without Amy’s love and support. I don’t think there is a better support system out there than Amy!
