Dr. Pereira was incredible to work with and very collaborative. I had done a lot of research on my own and had a lot of questions on DOR (AMH - ~.83) and different supplements/treatment protocols. He let us know what he would recommend, but said we were a team and if there was something we felt strongly about he was very open to incorporating that into our plan (fresh transfer. PGS testing etc). He saw me on every single visit and was

I preferred the tribeca office because it was much quieter/faster. ... had previously been at RMA and RMA had someone who helped with financial coordination a bit more, but Weill has that as well, however they have you call your insurance and confirm everything personally which took some time. Other than that, zero complaints.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira was incredible to work with and very collaborative. I had done a lot of research on my own and had a lot of questions on DOR (AMH - ~.83) and different supplements/treatment protocols. He let us know what he would recommend, but said we were a team and if there was something we felt strongly about he was very open to incorporating that into our plan (fresh transfer. PGS testing etc). He saw me on every single visit and was always warm and friendly. This was also all during coronavirus and he went above and beyond to try to alleviate our fears and make us comfortable. We were preparing for IVF and had me on an estrogen patch for the last week of my period cycle prior. We also did timed intercourse then (where he monitored ovulation and my levels) and between that and the estrogen patch we managed to get pregnant prior to starting IVF. Given that I had previously had a chemical pregnancy, I was still very nervous once we were pregnant and he monitored all of my levels and provided me with progesterone and estrogen support. I couldn't recommend him more.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to ask questions - he is very easy to talk to.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira went above and beyond to sit us down and walk us through how everything worked and all of my options for over an hour. He told us that while we were seeing him we were like family and gave us his email address. Any time we sent him any question he responded within a few hours (if not 20 minutes) even though he is extremely busy and no matter how silly the question may have been.

Dr. Pereira is extremely knowledgeable, caring, ready to help, answers email in few hours. I have had so many questions, confusion and worry but Dr. Pereira was there to answer and explain everything with so much patience... I had to go through many procedures with Dr Pereira and other two doctors/clinics but all the procedures Dr. Pereira did were so much less painful. He will arrange everything so quickly its unbelievable. My husband had to meet urologist and the appointment was weeks away but he called and arranged appointment in few days.

There was hardly any wait in Tribeca office but on weekends you have to go to upper east office and there you have to wait for 30+ mins

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We cannot recommend Dr. Pereira enough! Dr. Pereira is an excellent doctor and a wonderful human being. He goes out of his way to help you. Infertility is a tough journey and sometimes one needs reassurance from your doctor that things will be okay. Dr. Pereira was there for us whenever we needed help from him even at odd hours of the day. He has excellent bed side manners. We have not seen such humble, caring, intelligent and funny doctor before. He is subject matter expert and explains everything very clearly and encourages you to ask questions. His nurses and staff are very cheerful, helpful and always smiling. You never have to wait at his clinic and the staff is very efficient and punctual. We will always be grateful for his help and care during our infertility journey.

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
You never have to wait here. If you are leaving work and coming to clinic you will be out in less than 20-25 mins finishing your appointment. There is no wait time. The location is good, the clinic looks new and clean. Weaknesses - dealing with billing team

After two failed cycles I wanted to transfer two 5 day blastocyst but Dr. Pereira suggested we should just transfer one and we did the same.

Dr. P[ereira] is sensitive to what is going on in your life whether it be travel for work, fear of needles or both!! He finds ways to make everything as easy as possible on you. Truly couldn’t recommend someone more -- was VERY upset when I had my last appointment with him and tried to find out if there was any way I could keep him through delivery!...He was away visiting a family member who was sick and still personally called me on a weekend to provide me with an update on my blood results.
The nursing staff [at Weill Cornell Medical College] is amazing! They always see me and give me a big smile and ask me questions about how I am doing...I am very afraid of needles, and they all are so patient and sweet to me. I have even broken down in tears before when I knew my blood test was going to be negative but they know what to say and do. Compassionate nurses make a VERY big difference!...Making an appointment is VERY easy too.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Nigel Pereira is amazing. Would recommend him to my best friend, in fact I did and she got pregnant right away! I have also recommended him to a handful of other friends, and several are already pregnant! Having a doctor that you trust, feel at ease with and also know if you shoot him an email will get back to you VERY soon is a blessing and all you can hope for with your fertility journey. Also, Dr. P is sensitive to what is going on in your life whether it be travel for work, fear of needles or both!! He finds ways to make everything as easy as possible on you. Truly couldn’t recommend someone more -- was VERY upset when I had my last appointment with him and tried to find out if there was any way I could keep him through delivery!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Trust him and feel comfortable asking him anything! He is truly the most wonderful person, if you are having any issues emotional, physical tell him and he will take that into consideration. I am VERY afraid of needles so the blood draws were not fun for me -- after telling him he would ensure that if that blood test wasn't 100% necessary I didn't have to take it. Also, ask him anything because once you do you will feel better - he has a way about him of just putting you at ease, no matter what the response is!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Nigel Pereira treats all patients as if they are his family. This is a tough and emotional roller coaster but he is there every step of the way to ensure you have everything you need. His bedside manner is also just what you need! Just one of the many examples of how amazing, Dr. P is - He was away visiting a family member who was sick and still personally called me on a weekend to provide me with an update on my blood results.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I found out a few months into my fertility journey that I had PCOS and needed to see a R.E. Luckily after HSG and sperm testing everything looked good on our end and we started letrozole. We tried naturally the first month. The next 4 months we tried with an IUI (we think one month we were a little too late based on my work travel :/). We also use an estrogen patch to help with the growth of my lining. We were hesitant to just do clomid to start because of my lining issues but we wanted to try a mix of letrozole and clomid to see if that would bear fruit. The first attempt of trying to medicine we saw no progress but we tried it again (this was our last ditch attempt to get pregnant before IVF) and I am thrilled and it worked! I am just shy of 13 weeks pregnant. I cannot say it enough, there is NO other doctor I would have rather gone on this journey with. Dr. P and his entire team were amazing, he is the best doctor and person out there!!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is amazing! They always see me and give me a big smile and ask me questions about how I am doing. I mentioned this before, but I am very afraid of needles, and they all are so patient and sweet to me. I have even broken down in tears before when I knew my blood test was going to be negative but they know what to say and do. Compassionate nurses make a VERY big difference!
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The clinic is very organized, despite having a lot of women go through I feel like I am a priority and trust everything. They have two locations one UES and one Tribeca. I actually love UES but schlep downtown to see Dr. P several times a week - he always tries to find days he is working UES so I don’t need to travel as far. We also get to go UES on the weekend trips so that is a nice treat or for IUI or spem analysis. The afternoon following a blood test you get a call from the office with updates on medication as well as next steps if you didn’t already discuss. Making an appointment is VERY easy too. DR. P has his own medical assistant, Megi. Megi is very responsive and makes it all work!!!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I left my prior job and am currently paying for COBRA because the fertility benefits were better than my new job (non-existent!) IUI was $735 including male and female components.

Dr. Pereira always takes the time to genuinely say hello, asks how you are and you can tell he really cares. He is extremely responsive to emails and calls. Within 24 hours, if not sooner you hear from him. At initial consult he took to time to clearly explain reproduction, hormones, levels etc and what everything means and why it is important. He is very knowledgeable and competent...I had a wonderful experience and am so glad I went with Dr. Pereira. He treats you like a human and takes the time to explain everything, your options, process etc. He is responsive and patient with questions and clarifications. I felt in very good hands and honestly he and the office made all the difference. I can't recommend him enough. Extremely supportive.
Val [nurse at Weill Cornell] was wonderful! Overall the nursing staff was great...I liked the way Monitoring worked. Tribeca office is so easy ( if you live downtown). It's a nice, quiet office building. Fewer patients compared to UES and the wait it not long. Including my 10 minute commute to office, I could leave my apt, go to monitoring and be home in 50min-1hr. I went to UES on weekend and it was busier and the wait was longer, plus it had the "hospital" feel, but I loved the Phlebotomists on UES.

Gonal F for several days, then I added Menapur and Centrotide for several more days. Trigger was Lupron and HCG. They retrieved 7 eggs, all were mature and frozen.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Val)
Val was wonderful! Overall the nursing staff was great. I also met with Julie ( i think) on Day 1. Evangeline was the nurse who called me regularly. Val was beyond helpful and supportive, but everyone was great.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
My one issue was with the pre-authorization and billing departments. I had to call a lot and never got the response I needed. It often took many calls, asking for supervisors and explaining the issue over and over. My issue was related to approval, as Weill Cornell info and my insurance info did not match. It was quite upsetting to have to also deal with so much " red tape" at the onset of this process.

From scheduling appointments, meeting with the genetic counselor, taking the IVF class, reviewing billing questions, etc, the process ran very smoothly

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Pereira is a world-class doctor that we highly recommend. He was knowledgeable, thorough and methodical, and made tweaks in our treatment to find the best fit which ultimately led to a successful pregnancy. He was a clear communicator in terms of benefits/risks of different tests and treatments and made sure we were comfortable every step of the process. Most important, he was kind, compassionate and accessible, which is incredibly important for patients struggling physically, mentally and emotionally with infertility. Dr Pereira went above and beyond in his care for us, typically responding to emails within a few hours, setting up additional appointments if we had questions, and sometimes even calling us after hours or on the weekends to review results or make us feel at ease. He always took our emotions, questions and concerns seriously particularly when we were uncertain how things would turn out. Dr Pereira had a nice sense of humor, which helped lighten the mood and made this process as pleasant as it could be given the circumstances. It was bittersweet to 'graduate' from Dr Pereira, as we would have loved to stay on with him as our OB. We are now in the final stages of our pregnancy, and continue to think fondly of him for getting us to this point. There is no question that we will work with Dr Pereira again when we decide to have our second child.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Ask all the questions you need to in order to feel comfortable with the series of tests, treatments, medicine, etc. Dr Pereira is patient and very willing to make sure you have all the information you need.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
At our consultation, Dr Pereira said that he treats his patients family and this was completely true in the one year that we worked with him to achieve pregnancy. He was kind, compassionate and went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions and concerns were addressed. Whether we wanted to discuss next steps in detail or test results, he would always welcome setting up additional appointments, responding quickly by email, or even calling us after hours / on the weekends to make sure we felt at ease.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We did four IUIs (three with Clomid/Letrozole) that did not result in pregnancy. We then moved onto IVF and transferred a PGS tested embryo via unmedicated FET. Unfortunately it did not take, so we did a hysteroscopy to rule out uterine issues. We did a second egg retrieval and medicated FET with a PGS tested embryo, which resulted in our current pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College.
The main nurse that we interacted with was knowledgeable, patient and organized. She always followed up with results, protocol adjustments or other directions and was clear in her communication. In general, the nursing staff that I interacted with for blood tests and ultrasounds were all friendly and put me at ease.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The clinic is very well-run and organized. From scheduling appointments, meeting with the genetic counselor, taking the IVF class, reviewing billing questions, etc, the process ran very smoothly and we knew who to go to for specific questions. The office and equipment are fairly new and in great condition.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Monitoring hours ran like a well-oiled machine. I also got to see Dr Pereira for every single ultrasound monitoring (except a couple occasions when he was out of town) instead of being bounced around to different doctors every day, which was nice for continuity purposes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Part of IUIs/first round of IVF was covered by insurance. Second round of IVF was paid entirely out of pocket because we had used up our insurance infertility benefit.
Describe Nigel Pereira's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr Pereira recommended transferring just one embryo due to my age, body size, and genetically normal embryo.

Dr. Pereira is smart, transparent, knowledgeable, and has a wonderful bedside manner. He had a consultation with me before we started our work together, which I really appreciated. He got to know me and my background and what I wanted out of this experience. If a question popped up in my head later, I could email him and receive a response in 24 hours, this was a first for me, I have never experienced that before....

The office [Weill Cornell Medical] is clean and beautiful and I never dreaded having to go see Dr. Pereira... Strengths: Office is beautiful, Dr. P and the nurses are great. Location is easy to get to. I always felt like I had access to nurses and Dr. P. Dr. Pereira also takes early appointments, I could go before work! Weaknesses: wait times depending on when you go. The earlier the better.... Karla and Kristin were wonderful, as were all the nurses. Past experiences have left much to be desired, but not at Dr. Pereira's office.

I paid a copay, which I knew I had to. I paid a copay every time I saw Dr. Pereira because with my insurance, he is considered a specialist. I found Dr. Pereira because he was in network with my insurance, so besides copays, I paid nothing out of pocket. As for medications, I had one expensive medication, but I didn't have to take it every month, it was more of a one time prescription.

The first time we met Dr. Pereira was after we had experienced a pregnancy loss. He couldn't have been more compassionate and he explained to us that he aims to treat his patients with the same care he would give to his family members. Now that we've been seeing Dr. Pereira for several months, I understand that he meant what he said during that first visit with him...I truly feel like his treatment and care is personalized (e.g., he really took into account the fact that we had experienced two natural pregnancies that resulted in a loss and the emotional state we were in). For example, he chose to delay my IVF cycle start because of a new physical condition that came up for me.
The monitoring staff [at Weill Cornell] show compassion and really make your daily monitoring experience more pleasant. That said, the weekend communication is a little less organized and it would be nice to have a way to contact the office more easily to ask questions...highly organized and personal at the same time. I am very pleased to have chosen Cornell. I do not have my IVF results yet, but still feel very happy with the service that Cornell provided me.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira is someone you can trust. Of course, he works at one of the top clinics so you know that you can trust his expertise. Beyond that, you can trust him that he really cares about you as a patient and wants the best for you. I truly feel like his treatment and care is personalized (e.g., he really took into account the fact that we had experienced two natural pregnancies that resulted in a loss and the emotional state we were in). For example, he chose to delay my IVF cycle start because of a new physical condition that came up for me. While we could have proceeded with the cycle, he chose not to because he explained that he only wanted to start a cycle if I was set up to achieve optimal results. Also, as stated in other reviews, he is extremely responsive. He always responds to emails within several hours which helps ease your mind when you have questions/concerns.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Trust that he wants the best for you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr.Pereira is simply the best best best. The first time we met Dr. Pereira was after we had experienced a pregnancy loss. He couldn't have been more compassionate and he explained to us that he aims to treat his patients with the same care he would give to his family members. Now that we've been seeing Dr. Pereira for several months, I understand that he meant what he said during that first visit with him. Dr. Pereira has really made us feel like he has our back through the ups and downs and we couldn't be more appreciative.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Gonal F and Menopur for first several days of cycle. Cetrotide was introduced at around day 6 of cycle. Gonal F dose started out at 150 and dropped to zero at the end of the cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Crystal is absolutely wonderful. She is compassionate, kind and has so much knowledge about the IVF process. She is extremely organized and makes you feel like she is in it with you. In addition to Crystal, all of the staff at Cornell are wonderful. The monitoring staff show compassion and really make your daily monitoring experience more pleasant. That said, the weekend communication is a little less organized and it would be nice to have a way to contact the office more easily to ask questions.

Dr. Pereira was always considerate and kind when it came to all of my questions -- and I had a lot of questions about the treatment, why I was feeling a certain way and every time I shared my symptoms, he was always prompt and caring with his responses. Additionally, he was never "pushy" with one type of treatment or another -- he always prioritized and understood what was important to me -- making me feel comfortable with my decisions as I listened to my body.
Although I never met Crystal [nurse at Cornell] in person -- she's the one that delivered my blood results over the phone every day and gave me instructions -- I feel like we developed a bond over the eight months of treatment. She was super compassionate and clear in her communications so that I don't have to call back, and if I needed to call back, she was super helpful...Tribeca office is a great facility with relatively short wait times -- during regular monitoring hours, it took me no longer than 40 min for both ultrasound and blood work -- however, it can get crowded at times. The only thing I didn't like about the office was that it wasn't open during the weekend, so I had to go to Upper East location, where I didn't know any of the nurses. Other than that, a great facility, especially if you live near by.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira was the best doctor that I could've asked for during my fertility journey. He was candid yet kind and prompt yet professional with all of his emails. Additionally, it seemed like he tailored his explanation and treatment based on the patient. For instance, I prefer to see the facts, the numbers behind one method over the other, and he always printed me a copy of the research paper so that I can read it on my own and come back to him with questions. Overall, while it was a relatively long journey for us (8 months), I'm really happy that he was our doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Feel free to over communicate your symptoms and don't shy from asking him a lot of questions -- he's more than willing to help answer them.

Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
My insurance policy required 6 cycles of IUI before IVF was required and Dr. P tried his best to make IUI work for me, which it did! He would change my dosage and when I take clomid based on how my body reacted the cycle before to optimize our chances.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I had pretty amazing fertility benefit, so had to just pay my co-pay ($15 / visit), which did add up because I ended up going 10-12 times / month for 6+ months. All of my husband's sperm exams and washing for IUI were out of pocket, so we had to pay around $200-$300 for each cycle. There were some tests that weren't covered that we had to pay out of pocket, but don't think we spent more than $3-$4K for the entire process.

He [Dr. Pereira] was incredibly thorough with testing (and moved fast with testing, which was much appreciated) and took lots of time with consults. I never felt rushed as we developed plans, and he took time to explain the procedures, our results, his interpretation of our results, and the rationale for his recommendations. I really appreciated feeling involved and respected in the process. He was very responsive when I had concerns--after receiving some disappointing results at one stage of treatment, my husband and I called and were very distressed. He called back within 10-20 minutes and took time to explain the results (which it turns out were not as bad as we feared), and it was so reassuring. He is also a gynecological surgeon and so was able to perform a surgery when I had to have one as part of my treatment--being able to have that continuity of care was great. We had success after our second round of IVF and plan to go back to Cornell and Dr. Pereira for any future treatments.
The nursing staff [at Weill Cornell] was very responsive--I always got return calls within a couple of hours, and Crystal was the responding nurse 90% of the time...Occasionally there was a long wait, but I think that may have been partially because I tended to arrive at the end of the monitoring window, which was the busiest time...I felt really comfortable with the quality of the entire practice and got the sense that the doctors collaborated quite a bit in making decisions about patients so you got the expertise of the crowd. Being in a larger practice also had pros such as an in-house genetics counselor. The nursing staff and admin staff were very responsive, and I always got calls back quickly when I had questions or concerns. The only slight negative in my whole experience was that monitoring hours sometimes got backed up so there could be a bit of a wait in the mornings, but this may partially be because I tended to show up towards the end of the monitoring window. Scheduled appointments always ran on time.

He took tons of time to fully explain the treatments to me--he treated me like an equal. He was also very compassionate and responsive when I had concerns.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Crystal )
The nursing staff was very responsive--I always got return calls within a couple of hours, and Crystal was the responding nurse 90% of the time.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
For fertility treatments it isn't only your particular physician that matters but the quality of the whole practice. The quality of the lab can influence results, and procedures are often completed by other doctors. I felt really comfortable with the quality of the entire practice and got the sense that the doctors collaborated quite a bit in making decisions about patients so you got the expertise of the crowd. Being in a larger practice also had pros such as an in-house genetics counselor.

Occasionally there was a long wait, but I think that may have been partially because I tended to arrive at the end of the monitoring window, which was the busiest time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I had good insurance coverage. I believe I spent apx $4k on copays for 2 retrievals, 3 transfers, and testing (including diagnostic surgery). My main costs were associated with medications and elective PGS testing.
Describe Nigel Pereira's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
He was very committed to eSET and was concerned about the risks associated with multiples pregnancy.

He is very accomplished in his research but is able to breakdown all information so you can easily understand. Dr. Pereira put us at ease every time we met with him...From March-May we met fairly regularly to track ovulation to have planned intercourse. Throughout this process it was determined we had unexplained infertility so we began shots for our egg retrieval and embryo transfer in late May. To prepare for the egg retrieval we used Follistum, Menopur, and Ganirellix. After our egg retrieval I took a z-pac and Medrol. Once the embryo transfer was complete we started with the Progesterone shots.
The Tribeca office [of Well Cornell] is absolutely fantastic! Facilities are very clean and wait times were minimal, even during monitoring hours which can get pretty busy if you do not arrive before 8AM. The staff is extremely friendly and helps make you feel at ease during a difficult time, their smiles and personality make being at the doctor's very early in the morning multiple times a week much more bearable...The nursing staff at CRM is fantastic. Whenever I had a question about medications or procedures I received a call back the same day. The IVF class CRM offers is lead by the nursing team, this made me and my husband feel so much more comfortable about injections.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
My husband and I were lucky enough to receive a positive pregnancy test after our first round of IVF and we attribute most of our success to the amazing guidance and care provided by Dr. Pereira. When meeting with Dr. Pereira you can see how passionate he is and he really treats you like family. He is very accomplished in his research but is able to breakdown all information so you can easily understand. Dr. Pereira put us at ease every time we met with him. After I became pregnant I was sad to “graduate” from his fertility program because he is such a great doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Share all medical information so that Dr. Pereira can create the best fertility plan to meet your needs. When meeting with Dr. Pereira feel free to ask any questions to help put your mind at ease. Follow his plan, take a couple of months on the front end, and allow Dr. Pereira to create the best course of action based on your expectations and financial abilities.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira is very knowledgeable, warm, and compassionate. When meeting with him he really treats you like family and helps put us at ease during an emotionally challenging time.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I made sure to arrive no later then 7:30AM as typically the closer you got to 8AM the longer the wait times. If I arrived by 7:30AM I was able to have my ultra sound and blood work to make it back up to midtown by 8:30AM.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Megi (Dr. Pereira’s assistant) was great explaining everything to review with our insurance company so we could better plan for any out of pocket costs. Our insurance is Cigna and our out of pocket expenses for services from March-August have been well under $2,000.
Describe Nigel Pereira's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
For our scenario Dr. Pereira recommended a single egg transfer and to freeze the remaining embryos. Dr. Pereira decided this based on my health, our discussions about our future family plans, and to help minimize any risk.

f you got there [Weill Cornell] early [for monitoring] then you were out early. I always came in around 8-8:15ish and was out before 9am. That meaning i had my ultrasound, blood work & saw Dr. P[ereira]... The receptionist all remembered my name which I don't think is easy considering they see so many people a day. The phlebotomist were always good at taking blood painlessly...I had insurance coverage at 100% as long as I stayed within the center of excellence. Dr. Pereira was in the center of excellence. My medication total came out to about $75 out of pocket for the egg retrieval. I also was responsible for $25 office visit copay. I would think the total was around $3K out of pocket.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira was amazing. He always responded to my emails and phone calls within the hour. Never acted like he was too busy. In fact I felt like I was his only patient. When i had my egg retrieval he made it a point to be there & do it himself. I trusted him after our first conversation.

Dr. Pereira is very kind. We felt that we could trust him completely and he would provide us with the best possible information. Dr. Pereira put us at ease every time we met with him. Our diagnosis came as somewhat of a shock and Dr. Pereira explained our specific issues clearly, left time for questions, and walked us through the best course of action.... Dr. Pereira recommended letrozole in light of clinical studies that have shown better outcomes for women with PCOS. We were not successful with just this course of action and Dr. Pereira recommended moving to IUI to account for low sperm motility.
Cornell is a large clinic with many doctors. Sometimes the waiting room feels impersonal and like you're "just a number". We've only been to this clinic so I am not sure if that is how it is or specific to Cornell.... There are many nurses in the clinic, so it is somewhat hard to keep track of which ones are more compassionate or helpful. The trigger shot was administered by a nurse and she was very kind, asking how i preferred to receive the shot (countdown, no talking, etc.). Also, when we did not conceive the nursing staff showed a lot of compassion stating that they were sorry we were not successful and asking if we wanted to continue or take a break.

Our diagnosis came as somewhat of a shock and Dr. Pereira explained our specific issues clearly, left time for questions, and walked us through the best course of action.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
If you are not well versed in medical jargon or fertility jargon, ask lots of questions. Dr. Pereira will explain each term and plan of action. Sometimes he needs to be prompted.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
The office staff is very warm without being overly intrusive or clinical. Dr. Pereira has a gentle bedside manner and it is clear he has a thought process to next steps. He answers every question thoroughly and responds to emails and calls quickly. The office has many doctors so the waiting room is often busy.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We are still in the process, but so far we have used letrozole with a trigger shot (ovidriel).

Dr Periera always resounded to my emails right away and always had very polite bedside manner....If you are seeing Dr Periera for IUI, he will not be performing the procedure itself.... Dr. Periera was always very kind and sincere. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and promptly and made the experience easier to handle. Although I ultimately did not conceive, I do not believe it had anything to do with Dr Periera or his protocol.
I was not a fan of the clinic [Weill Cornell] for IUI purposes. I can’t comment on IVF but IUI was poorly run. The wait is very long between arrival and the procedure and they mislead you on how long the wait will be. A nurse, not your Dr, performs the IUI. The third time I had the IUI done, the nurse couldn’t find my cervix and ended up injuring me.... They lost several signed consent forms and we had to resign them (which was annoying because they were required to be notarized) and a few times I had to call them for my blood work results.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Periera was always very kind and sincere. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and promptly and made the experience easier to handle. Although I ultimately did not conceive, I do not believe it had anything to do with Dr Periera or his protocol. With the exception of one thing. When I switched clinics, my new Dr told me I had a thyroid imbalance and put me on synthyroid. I felt better within 3 days - more energy; better mood and better quality sleep. I’m disappointed Dr Periera did not catch this.

If you are seeing Dr Periera for IUI, he will not be performing the procedure itself. While Dr Periera is great, Cornell on the other hand was not the best.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Periera always resounded to my emails right away and always had very polite bedside manner.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
The first two cycles of IUI were natural cycles. Dr Periera recommended that because we only had male favor infertility secondary to chemotherapy and already had a daughter conceived nautwlly from prior to chemo. However, my husbands samples always fell below the amount/motility parameters and I believe that is why I did not get pregnant. The third round of IUI we tried clomid and a trigger shot which did produce 2 follicles. But again, my husband’s sample fell below.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was abrupt but informative if you pressed them. Sometimes I felt like an intrusion.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
I was not a fan of the clinic for IUI purposes. I can’t comment on IVF but IUI was poorly run. The wait is very long between arrival and the procedure and they mislead you on how long the wait will be. A nurse, not your Dr, performs the IUI. The third time I had the IUI done, the nurse couldn’t find my cervix and ended up injuring me. I literally kicked her out of my body and the room and requested someone else. The IUI process itself was so stressful that I cannot help but wonder if that was part of the reason we were not successful,
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Dr. Pereira was very professional and explained everything in detail. However, I felt that his area of opportunity was to understand that I also had questions. He expressed through his tone and body language that he seemed slightly agitated when I had questions....what I loved most about him was that he wasn't quick to jump to IVF. Dr. Pereira was willing to explore why I am experiencing infertility and his first course of action was to attempt to correct the problem first. In my case, I have a blocked fallopian tube and thankfully
Strengths: High level of professionalism, pristine facility [Weill Cornell], knowledgeable staff, short wait time, and kept me informed with the entire process. Areas of opportunity: I left the clinic with a large folder filled with information- specifically regarding payments/ insurance. I was asked to call my insurance company and read off several questions in terms of coverage for treatments and medications. I felt that it was very overwhelming and really did not anticipate having to complete such a task.

Dr Pereria is absolutely wonderful. He would come in to see us on his day off. He did my retrieval even though he wasn’t working. He called and emailed me personally. He told me at the beginning of treatment that I didn’t need to worry about getting pregnant anymore because that would now be his job....He is funny, relaxed and extremely clear. I trusted him completely. He goes out of his way to put you at ease and lessen your fertility stress and anxiety. He is interested in you and how you are doing.
Lovely and clean environment. Very comfortable and well organized. Fantastic location. I enjoyed coming. There was never any issue. Simple to access and the staff are lovely. It is a doctors office but they’ve made it as clean and modern as possible.... 13K for the IVF treatment. Blood monitoring was $100 per session and ultrasounds were $300 per session before insurance... Dr Pereria encouraged me to do a fresh transfer of two 3 day embryos. He said the embryos help each other implant and since we had no genetic issues

Max I had to wait was 15 mins to see Dr. Pereira. When I walked in, the entire staff knew my name as soon as I walked through the entrance door. Any time I had any questions outside of the office, I would email Dr. Pereira and he would reply within 12 hours - most of the time getting a response within 3 hours.... I am now pregnant thanks to Dr. Pereira. His monitoring hours worked perfectly with my schedule. He is very knowledgeable and clear when explaining the next steps.
It is good to know that the Tribecca office [Weill Cornell] does not actually do the IUI procedure. Also, your doctor may not necessarily do the IUI procedure on you. The billing department can be hard to get in contact with and get your issue resolved.... My husband had to go on a trip while I was going to be ovulating.

Anytime I saw him in passing, he always said hello by my name and always asked how I was doing...I received a cycle of hormone injections and then when ready I had an IUI...We decided together on what steps I would take. He’s also so kind and caring. I was very upset and worried when I first started the whole process but he made me feel like everything will be OK and I knew I was in good hands. It was crazy how I was not even worried anymore. Whenever I emailed him regarding any questions I had, he got back to me so quickly no matter what time it was. I cannot recommend him enough. He is just the most amazing doctor with such a big heart.

I had seen two other doctors before I met with Dr Pereira. He was definitely my, “third times a charm.” I am One that avoids going to doctors because of my anxiety and trust issues but I knew I needed help. Dr Pereira took his time and explained everything to me and listened to what I wanted as well. We decided together on what steps I would take. He’s also so kind and caring. I was very upset and worried when I first started the whole process but he made me feel like everything will be OK and I knew I was in good hands. It was crazy how I was not even worried anymore. Whenever I emailed him regarding any questions I had, he got back to me so quickly no matter what time it was. I cannot recommend him enough. He is just the most amazing doctor with such a big heart.

Dr. Pereira went out of his way on multiple occasions to check on me to see how I was doing after my miscarriage.

He was extremely responsive.

Dr. Pereira is truly a great doctor. I was a little sad to have graduated from his care, other fertility doctors could really take example of his bedside manner. When we first met with Dr. Pereira for our first consultation, he was extremely compassionate and patient while he listened to our experience, and our first pregnancy ending in miscarriage and the horrid experience at our prior fertility clinic in midtown, I didn't get into great lengths with the entire experience with Dr. Pereira, but my husband and I definitely felt like a number versus how Dr. Pereira immediately treated us like human individuals and that it is ok to show sadness and grief and how everyone handles miscarriages differently. Dr. Pereira really gave us a new sense of trust in doctors, and his patience and knowledge is invaluable to our entire experience with him. We can't thank Dr. Pereira enough just for how he treated us, nevermind the professional care. Thank You.

When I first started seeing him, Dr. Pereira had me begin with a lower dose of letrozole to jump-start ovulation. As it did not work in the first cycle, he increased the dosage and began prescribing trigger shots as well. When this treatment did not work after 3 cycles, he moved me to a combination of Clomid and letrozole, which did help me to ovulate. After ovulating twice without a pregnancy, Dr. Pereira suggested I try an IUI as well, and I got pregnant on the first try.
I have nothing but good things to say about Weill Cornell Tribeca. It is a bright, clean, and modern facility and everything feels top of the line.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira was a wonderful resource throughout my journey to get pregnant. He is knowledgeable, intelligent, and experienced and maybe most important, he is a very good communicator and listener. In my first visit, which was rather overwhelming as I was diagnosed with PCOS (which I was utterly clueless about), he went above and beyond to explain the exact science of the disorder as well as how it would impact me and my treatment options. I left feeling 100% comfortable that I was in good hands. Over the course of the next few months, he worked with me respectfully and diligently to find the right treatment, and when we had obstacles in the path, he was understanding and caring about the stress they caused.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Stick with him! Infertility treatment can take a long time, and there will likely be bumps in the road, but Dr. Pereira knows what he is doing and he will get you there.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira always treated me with respect and care. He took the time to answer my questions and explain why he was recommending certain treatments, never rushing me out. Perhaps most importantly, he acknowledged the difficulty and stress inherent to this process, a simple validation that went a long way.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Overall I spent my full deductible / out of pocket maximum on my treatment in both of the calendar years I saw Dr. Pereira. Under my insurance plan, that meant spent roughly $1500 in the first year and $1250 in the second. I don't recall the specific costs per procedure.

From the very day first day, he was very warm and friendly and listened to our problems with patience. Dr Pereira never failed to show excellent bedside manners during all our visits and was also very sensitive in conveying news that our first 2 cycles were not positive. He never treated us like a number and even suggested us to not redo the same tests which were done on us by the previous clinic a short while ago...was very sensitive when relaying messages of failure during the first 2 attempts. He was always available over email to answer any queries or concerns that we had and would always reply within few hours even over the weekend. Overall I strongly vouch for Dr. Pererira and was sad to leave his office when we graduated at 10 weeks to our OB-GYN.
Our only problem with the clinic [Weill Cornell Medical College] is the Billing Department which is not very prompt. Before the start of the treatment our insurance needed a prior authorization which was not properly handled by the billing department due to which our first treatment round was delayed by few weeks...is very well organized and clean and situated in a very convenient location. Our experience with the billing department was not great and had to constantly follow up with them for our pre-authorizations. During our visits we found lots of patients in the waiting area but not much waiting time and we were attended by the nurses or the doctor soon.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We had numerous visits to our previous fertility clinic and were trying for 1 and half year before we visited Dr Pereira. Our first 3 IUI cycles with the previous clinic did not lead to desired results and we were also not happy in the way we were treated just like a number. A job change prompted us to change locations and also our clinic and now looking back I am so glad that happened. During our first visit we explained our previous history of a chemical pregnancy and a miscarriage and were concerned that there was a problem with me holding onto pregnancies. Dr. Pereira was quick to explain that was not the case and that it is common for a single miscarriage to happen. Post minor hiccups with the billing department we were then stuck by our insurance not covering for our IUI's but just TI (Timed Intercourse) cycles before we could graduate to IVF. Dr Pereira again also discussed the denial of the IUI authorization with the insurance. Once we were sure that IUI's wont be covered we started with the TI cycles and the first 2 cycles were negative and I was starting to lose hope but Dr Pererira assured that it was just a matter of time. Luckily, we were able to get a positive result on the 3rd round of treatment and I am currently at 13 weeks. During our visits to the clinic Dr Pereira showed warmth and excellent bedside manners and was very sensitive when relaying messages of failure during the first 2 attempts. He was always available over email to answer any queries or concerns that we had and would always reply within few hours even over the weekend. Overall I strongly vouch for Dr. Pererira and was sad to leave his office when we graduated at 10 weeks to our OB-GYN.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Trust him completely, he knows his job very well and you will be in excellent hands during this journey.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
With Dr Pereira, we had a refreshing change in the way we were treated than our previous clinic. From the very day first day, he was very warm and friendly and listened to our problems with patience. Dr Pereira never failed to show excellent bedside manners during all our visits and was also very sensitive in conveying news that our first 2 cycles were not positive. He never treated us like a number and even suggested us to not redo the same tests which were done on us by the previous clinic a short while ago.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
With a history of PCOS and after 3 failed IUI attempts , were not sure if we should directly jump to IVF. Due to the huge costs associated we wanted to give TI/IUI few tries and Dr Pereira completely supported this decision. We were put on a 7 day Letrozole cycle and were regularly called in for monitoring cycles. Once the egg was of a suitable size we used to self-administer Ovidrel injections as advised by the doctor or nurse. The 3rd cycle TI cyle yielded a positive result.

Chrystal was our nurse during the treatment but we co-ordinate only on phone. We used to see different nurses during the monitoring cycles but found all of them competent and very warm.

Dr. Pereira took the time to listen and respond to my every concern. He made sure I was educated and aware at every step of the process. He was very caring, including when I got into a bike accident, he made sure that the baby and I were healthy...is a wonderful doctor. I learned so much about my body, its potential challenges and all my options along the way. I was guided throughout the entire process and I felt 100% confident that Dr. Pereira was looking out for the health of me and the baby. I've left treatment not only pregnant, but fully educated and appreciative of this hospital, practice, and Dr. Pereira. I can only hope that I get this sort of care through my pregnancy! I absolutely plan on returning to Dr. Pereira if I have challenges with having more children.
The cost of visit and routine bloodwork was nothing out of the ordinary [at Weill Cornell Medical College]. The special tests (genetic screening, semen analysis, ovary MRI, panorama) are what cost a lot of money and at times I wish I had known the cost upfront and if it was absolutely necessary to these tests or not. I know this is challenging because it takes coordination with the insurance company...It is such a beautiful, clean, high-tech facility and the staff runs it like a machine. I never had long wait times. I always felt safe and healthy leaving the hospital, which is very important during covid times. The staff are all kind and respectful.

Overall, I highly recommend the clinic.

On our second round of Letrozole, Dr. Pereira noticed something didn't look right on my ultrasound and presumed I had a uterine polyp. I ended up having another chemical pregnancy that cycle, and he and his team were very kind as my husband and I dealt with another disappointment. However, he and his team acted fast, and I was able to schedule the procedure to remove the polyp within weeks. Low and behold, I got pregnant just 6 weeks later and am now 12 weeks along. I highly recommend Dr. Pereira and his team!

Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Dr. Pereira recommended I try medication that would cause superovluation to give us a better chance at conceiving naturally. I ended up reacting very strongly to Clomid and ovulated very quickly and developed an ovarian cyst. We switched to Letrozole, and I did get pregnant that month, but that resulted in a chemical pregnancy and the discovery of a uterine polyp. After removing the polyp, we tried another round of Letrozole, and were able to conceive naturally that cycle.

I had been on birth control pills for 10 or so years without a break and without a proper heavy period. When I stopped the pill, I had 2 periods across 8 months, that's when I decided to go see Dr Pereira. He immediately put me on clomid to wake up my ovaries. His plan included 2 cycles of clomid with timed intercourse, if that didn't work then move on to IUI. That's exactly what we did...I got pregnant after the 2nd IUI...Even though Dr Pereira has a lot of patients to see each day, he will always take the time to explain the process, answer questions. He's very compassionate and kind. I always felt at ease at each appointment.
They [nurses] were always friendly and professional. The standards are so high at Weill Cornell Tribeca, everyone working there is top notch...My insurance covered most of the costs. I had to pay approx $500-600 in total out of pocket...Very clean, modern, and very little wait time - absolutely perfect. Even the UES location on the weekend mornings which was insanely busy, was well organized, and I never had to wait more than 15 mins. I honestly don't have any complaints about the clinic...Even though Dr Pereira has a lot of patients to see each day, he will always take the time to explain the process, answer questions.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I chose Dr Pereira because he came highly recommended and his reviews on Fertility IQ were the strongest. Rightly so, he's very knowledgeable and thorough with explaining what a lot of women don't know about when it comes to fertility and what exactly the hormones are doing. I appreciated that he took the time to explain the science behind it. Dr Pereira is a very popular and busy doctor, but I never really felt rushed in my appointments with him. He even remembered that we like the same bands/music, and was always so nice to my husband. I honestly have no negative feedback on Dr Pereira, he is the best fertility doctor in NYC hands down!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Make sure you're able to make the time commitment to go to the fertility appointments! They're usually twice a week. Block that time out of your work calendar if you can. You might have a few weekends where you'll have to go to UES at 7am on a Saturday morning for a trigger shot in the bum, and go back 24 hours later for the IUI. You might have to make these early morning commitments on a few weekends and quite a bit on weekdays. Prepare your partner to be involved in it too. Clomid can make you look/feel bloated and causes a bit of cramping. It's not horrible, it's just a bit of a sacrifice. Dr Pereira is the best, you won't regret it! :)
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Even though Dr Pereira has a lot of patients to see each day, he will always take the time to explain the process, answer questions. He's very compassionate and kind. I always felt at ease at each appointment.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I had been on birth control pills for 10 or so years without a break and without a proper heavy period. When I stopped the pill, I had 2 periods across 8 months, that's when I decided to go see Dr Pereira. He immediately put me on clomid to wake up my ovaries. His plan included 2 cycles of clomid with timed intercourse, if that didn't work then move on to IUI. That's exactly what we did. The IUI treatments included an ovidrel trigger shot administered by the nurse. I got pregnant after the 2nd IUI.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were always friendly and professional. The standards are so high at Weill Cornell Tribeca, everyone working there is top notch.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Very clean, modern, and very little wait time - absolutely perfect. Even the UES location on the weekend mornings which was insanely busy, was well organized, and I never had to wait more than 15 mins. I honestly don't have any complaints about the clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
My insurance covered most of the costs. I had to pay approx $500-600 in total out of pocket.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I am utterly grateful and privileged to have had Dr. Pereira as my doctor. It is because of Dr. Pereira that I am expecting and he made the emotional process of treating infertility so much easier. Dr. Pereira always listened to my concerns, explained procedures fully, and was always accessible if I had questions or concerns. I don't know many doctors who are not only willing to give out their email but responded so quickly and compassionately.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The Tribeca clinic was clean and all staff from front desk personnel to coordinators and nurses were always professional and friendly. One tip though is that if you're waiting more than 15 minutes for bloodwork, let them know right away and they'll be sure to get you in there ASAP.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I am probably one of the lucky few, where my insurance covered the bill. I just needed to pay an annual deductible of $200 and a $30 copay + $20 lab copay for each visit. Visits do add up though when you're coming in 2 -3 times a week for monitoring, but affordable considering what it could have been without coverage.

Dr. Pereira is a special doctor, and one of the rare ones whose bedside manner equally parallels his incredible expertise. I have never felt so important and cared for as a patient, and I think Dr. Pereira's regular communication and quick responses to my inquiries, has a lot to do with it. During my time as Dr. Pereira's patient, I underwent emergency surgery for ovarian torsion.

The entire nursing staff [at Weill Cornell Medical College] was professional and lovely as can be, which is exactly what you want when you are going through something as serious and intimidating as fertility treatment...out of all of the tests I had run, and out of all of the results, the staff only failed to call me one time. Unfortunately it was regarding genetic testing that I had been waiting on a bit anxiously. When I messaged my doctor though, he responded within minutes apologizing for the failed communication and sharing the update with me. It was also good news, so I'm sure it wasn't critical for the staff to be in touch with me.

I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Pereira or his staff. Dr. Pereira is a special doctor, and one of the rare ones whose bedside manner equally parallels his incredible expertise. I have never felt so important and cared for as a patient, and I think Dr. Pereira's regular communication and quick responses to my inquiries, has a lot to do with it.

Dr. Pereira did not skip a beat making sure I was properly cared from the initial testing, to understanding my options, to answering my call at the crack of dawn when I knew I was in need of emergency surgery. I felt really lucky to have a gynecological surgeon, who was also a fertility specialist, in charge of my care, because I knew he would ensure my fertility future was well taken care of. He really is the best doctor, and it was bittersweet 'graduating' from his practice. Can not recommend him enough.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
I loved the walk in hours at the clinic, but, sometimes waiting for bloodwork was grueling. And I just wondered why I had woken up so early just to sit in the office waiting for bloodwork. Overall, I would say the clinic was very organized, clean, and as nice of an environment as you could expect for a medical fertility clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I can't remember specific costs, but I do remember that Dr. Pereira was very considerate with billing when my insurance wasn't the best.

Dr Pereira took the time to review my history thoroughly and took the time to answer all my questions. He was the only person I saw for checkups and he was able to switch things around to do my retrieval as well. He was always encouraging and always followed up.

Dr Pereira always encouraged me that this will work and that there’s no reason that I can’t get pregnant. He always responded to my emails the same day and took all my concerns seriously. He was the only person I saw for all my checkups and the retrieval.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I started the cycle with 100mg of Clomid for 5 days. On day 4 I added 150iu Gonal and 150iu Menopur. Menopur was increased to 225iu after a few days (this was my request cause i felt i wasn’t responding well enough). The last 5 days before the retrieval I added Cetrotide. Since I had a failed transfer at another clinic with a PGS normal 6AA embryo, dr P suggested a fresh transfer for me. He explained that sometimes it’s better to do a day 3 transfer cause some embryos don’t like the lab and there’s a chance that my embryo was rejected by my immune system so an “untouched” embryo may be better for me.

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
At the tribeca office I never had to wait very long. However, the main office on the weekend gets crowded. I still feel like they were very organized and things moved well. You will always see your doctor for checkups. They are not done my a nurse or random doctor like other clinics. The only exception may be the weekend - but even then I was lucky enough to see my doctor. The retrieval and transfer are typically done by the doctor that is assigned to the OR that day. I had dr. P for my retrieval but someone else for the transfer. I forgot the name of the doctor that did my transfer, but he was very knowledgeable and comforting as well.

Since I had 1 PGS normal out of 3 embryos during that first cycle, we decided to transfer 3 embryos. This is also the clinics recommendation for non-tested embryos at my age

I have Factor V Leiden blood clotting disorder. It was decided [by Dr. Pereira] at that point that I would give myself daily Enoxaparin Sodium injections starting with my next positive pregnancy test. We decided to try IUI to increase our pregnancy success rate and got pregnant. Unfortunately I lost that pregnancy too at about 6 weeks though giving myself injections (on top of Progesterone supplements). Not wanting to deal with a 5th pregnancy loss that could potentially be due to an abnormal embryo, my husband decided to take aggressive action with IVF.
Cornell's early monitoring hours are really great and and make it really easy to avoid a disruption to work. It was easy to make appointments and get in for super last minute ultrasounds if I was ever feeling nervous about anything. Highly recommend Cornell's fertility care...The nurses at Cornell were really great and friendly which is really important when coming in daily at some points. They were always prompt with their calls to report blood results and some were particularly warm and friendly. At times it was hard to get in contact with them via phone, but they always returned your calls.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
As previously mentioned, Dr Pereira always made me feel incredibly cared for. He always made time to explain everything and answer my questions thoroughly - no appointment ever felt rushed and I always felt like a priority of his.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
To chose him as your reproductive doctor!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
From the moment my husband and I met Dr Pereira, we really liked him. He is not only knowledgeable, but incredibly warm and compassionate and always made me feel like a priority, which was especially important after I suffered an additional miscarriage while under his care. He never made me feel like a number and treated my case specifically based on my medical history. If I ever had any questions for Dr P, he would email or give me a call even after hours. He is a wonderful person and the best doctor I have ever had.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
As I had gotten pregnant two times previously on my own before visiting Cornell (and lost them), he started me out by putting me on Progesterone supplements post ovulation surge. I became pregnant naturally after my first cycle under his care and all was going well until week 9, when a heartbeat could no longer be detected. After testing it was determined that the fetus likely died due to a blood clot as it was 'normal' and I have Factor V Leiden blood clotting disorder. It was decided at that point that I would give myself daily Enoxaparin Sodium injections starting with my next positive pregnancy test. We decided to try IUI to increase our pregnancy success rate and got pregnant. Unfortunately I lost that pregnancy too at about 6 weeks though giving myself injections (on top of Progesterone supplements). Not wanting to deal with a 5th pregnancy loss that could potentially be due to an abnormal embryo, my husband decided to take aggressive action with IVF. We became pregnant with our first transfer of one embryo and I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and will be giving myself daily 40mg injections of Enoxaparin Sodium through my pregnancy.

While the office was generally super busy during monitoring hours and the wait could be longer than ideal, it was all managed quite well and the actual monitoring was really quick.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College.
As we did not qualify for IUI and IVF medical coverage with mine or my husband's medical status, we had to pay a lot of money out of pocket, easily in excess of $20k after IVF.
Describe Nigel Pereira's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr Pereira felt strongly that I should only have 1 embryo transferred due to my history with miscarriages and wanting to mitigate risk. This was in line with what my husband and I wanted to do also.

Although our journey was much harder than we expected he [Dr. Pereira] worked so tirelessly to support us with our desire to have a second baby...He kept adjusting our treatment, whilst acting in the most compassionate way. In the end we supported our successful transfer with immunology meds prescribed by our London Dr. I will never forget the day he called me with our first beta test results. It had been just over a full year we had been in his care and I know he was with us every step of the way, it was incredibly emotional. Having experienced very early losses he propped us up through the first weeks as I was so fragile and scared. I cannot thank him enough for all his support. We are eternally grateful.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
From the first consultation we had with Dr Pereira, we felt looked after, supported and informed. Although our journey was much harder than we expected he worked so tirelessly to support us with our desire to have a second baby. We believe we had immunology issues and for some unexplained reason the progesterone was not taking. He kept adjusting our treatment, whilst acting in the most compassionate way. In the end we supported our successful transfer with immunology meds prescribed by our London Dr. I will never forget the day he called me with our first beta test results.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?

The care was warm, patient and kind. I was always able to speak to someone and Dr Pereira was available for us at all times, often calling us personally with results or for follow up.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
He kept tweaking until it worked. I know the progesterone was one of our biggest and unexplained issues. He boosted my own progesterone during the successful cycle to assist with the injectables.

It felt reasonable in comparison to other treatments and he worked with us to ensure we had the best care. He was very kind and worked with us to make it the most affordable.
Describe Nigel Pereira's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
We absolutely felt educated on the trade offs between single and multiple embryo transfers. As our issue was not getting pregnant but staying pregnant we began by single only. Our successful pregnancy was our first multiple transfer that resulted in our daughter.

He [Dr. Pereira] explained the risks and rewards of [Eset] for a woman my age. His funny warning was with sending up 2 embryos, you can't return them if you get twins!...His bedside manner is honest and very dedicated about communicating the right things of whats going on and to have these expectations. He's very informative yet warm. I completely trusted his suggestions and what percentages would occur and how to proceed with treatment. He would never take unnecessary risks and made sure to have the best success rate.
[The nurses at Weill Cornell were] Super efficient! In and out with the blood work and always ready to call over a last minute drug!...cost effective and you felt like they were very educational. They wants the positive results but weren't driven by the money gained from it. They were honest about possibilities and managing expectations. If they felt it was too risky they wouldn't push for the procedure just for financial benefit...

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
His bedside manner is honest and very dedicated about communicating the right things of whats going on and to have these expectations. He's very informative yet warm. I completely trusted his suggestions and what percentages would occur and how to proceed with treatment. He would never take unnecessary risks and made sure to have the best success rate.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
He's great with communicating online and always able to be reached and cost conscious for those paying out of pocket. My insurance would not cover a certain procedure that was deemed normal but he decided it wasn't necessary in my case at the $1500 cost.
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We weren't getting the cycles and blood work back correctly as high as we wanted so he kept changing the drugs until they were perfect. He did not want to waste 2 AA embryos!

He [Dr. Pereira] was just so kind and attentive. He gave me his email on the first appointment and was true to his word in responsiveness. He also listened without judgment and just made me feel like he was in this journey with me...I enjoyed every visit. It didn't feel clinical - i felt like each time I got new facts and was more and more empowered about my body. Couldn't be more grateful to have found him. I was quite sad that my journey with Dr. Pereira had to end at nine weeks. I felt so comfortable with him that i wished he could be part of my entire journey.
They [nurses at Weill Cornell Medical College] were all so kind. They knew your name, were always friendly and in time - honestly nothing bad to say about the practice at all...I do wish they had more detail around costs of some of the genetic testing as i don't believe all of that ended up being covered...This location is just great. Brand new and organized. My only complaint - however slight - is that the front desk check in just wasn't as kind as the medical staff. But so minor that i could not recommend this clinic more.

Dr. Pereira always took the time to answer our questions and we never felt rushed. He also would answer emails immediately and would get me in whenever I needed. There was never a long wait. In our first appointment he spent a lot of time explaining what our options are and what was going on in a detailed way and had a power point presentation which helped us understand the process and the steps we needed to move forward.
The nurses [at Weill Cornell Medical College] were all lovely and pleasant on the phone. The results were always given in a timely fashion...I never waited for more than a couple of minutes to be seen and if I was early I would be taken early. The waiting room is big, bright and clean. The front desk staff is helpful and friendly and make you feel welcome when you come in...My insurance covered the majority of the costs...Dr. Pereira took the time to explain everything to us and allowed us the time to ask him every question. He was also very responsive to emails and calls. He would often call himself to give results. He reassured us at a time that was precarious and sensitive and continued to support us throughout our time with him.

Dr Pereira was extremely patient during each appointment. I never felt rushed, and he was very attentive to answering any questions or concerns I had. The first time my husband came to an appointment, he was greeted by name, and made to feel very comfortable...I am 43 years old and went to see Dr Pereira for guidance on how to proceed with a pregnancy at this age, without knowing whether I would encounter fertility or other issues. Dr Periera was incredibly kind, patient and comprehensive in his advice. There was never any pressure to go down any particular path of fertility treatment, rather he laid out very carefully all of the information and my options. Dr Pereira was extremely attentive and treated each appointment in a very personal and professional manner. My husband was made to feel very comfortable as well, and felt very much involved in the process. Dr Periera is extremely responsive by email and we were made to feel very much at ease in asking any questions at any time. On my first appointment, Dr Periera told me that he treated each of his patients like family, and I truly felt that to be the case. In the end, we were very fortunate to fall pregnant naturally and continued to be under Dr Pereira's care for only a short period while he looked after our pregnancy during the high risk first trimester, but in the future if we need to address fertility issues for another pregnancy, I would absolutely return to see Dr Pereira.
The clinic [Weill Cornell Medical College] is extremely well run, clean and modern. The front desk staff are polite and efficient, and the waiting times are very short. The staff are friendly and professional and inspire confidence. The environment is comfortable...The care co-ordinator was extremely helpful.

I feel very fortunate because I was able to conceive after my second cycle with Dr. P[ereira]. I came to him after trying for several months and doing 3 cycles of clomid with my OB/GYN. I did 2 cycles of Letrozole/monitoring with Dr. Pereira and conceived the second one. The nurses call with the analysis of your bloodwork to tell you the best time to have sex. The level of detail is just amazing...He has a great sense of humor and explained the issues and options in detail. Each time he saw me he greeted me by name and chatted with me.
I was amazed at how much information the monitoring could provide.

We came to him after switching from a different clinic in NJ where we had two failed IVF cycles. Dr. Pereira immediately noticed that our medicine dosages had been completely incorrect, along with incorrect timing of trigger shot resulting in poor quality eggs. Not only did Dr. P reinstate our hope in ever having children, but he thought that we should give an IUI a chance because our original diagnosis of poor morphology was potentially not as bad as initially thought.

How was your experience with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We are forever grateful to the wonderful Dr. Pereira! We came to him after switching from a different clinic in NJ where we had two failed IVF cycles. Dr. Pereira immediately noticed that our medicine dosages had been completely incorrect, along with incorrect timing of trigger shot resulting in poor quality eggs. Not only did Dr. P reinstate our hope in ever having children, but he thought that we should give an IUI a chance because our original diagnosis of poor morphology was potentially not as bad as initially thought. Dr. P’s instinct was spot on because our very first IUI with him worked! Aside from our miracle we felt confident that he is a doctor who would always know what to do next when unexpected outcomes come up, and his incredible knowledge and confidence was obvious. Not to mention, he is an all-around awesome guy (and funny too)! We will definitely be back to him (if we need) for baby number 2 and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone struggling with incompetent doctors and a complex fertility case.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
On first visit give him all information you have so far - any tests or stats on what you have done so far to conceive. He takes the time to review all of it and will be able to give you great feedback and direction from the first visit.

Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Dr. P wanted to observe my eggs naturally for one cycle to see how large the follicle gets to better help us time the trigger for IVF. During the monitoring he thought we mine as well try an IUI because our morphology issue was not as bad as we were originally told. The IUI resulted in a positive and continuing pregnancy (currently 15W)

Dr. Pereira was just a lovely person from the moment I first met him in consultation all the way through. He was knowledgeable and did an excellent job of explaining everything to me, and making sure I understood and that he wasn't going to fast. He was easy to reach and always returned calls/emails promptly. He was positive and compassionate in every interaction...He explained basically everything about human reproduction and how age affects it, did base line testing and then discussed a strategy with me. Timed intercourse did not yield a positive pregnancy test the first cycle so, as we had discussed when I first consulted with him, for the second cycle he prescribed clomid. With timed intercourse I conceived on the second cycle with Dr. Pereira.
staff [at Weill Cornell Medical College] were available constantly, there was never a time that I was unable to reach someone, get an answer to a question, or make an appointment for follow-up. They took time to answer all questions and never made me feel like I was bothering them or being too "needy."...[The nurses] Always called back promptly, answered all questions, made the entire process as easy as they possibly could...New, clean, well run and organized. It gets very busy but I don't think they can be blamed for that, I think it's amazing that the doctors and staff work so hard to help so many as quickly as possible.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nigel Pereira at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Pereira and his staff were available constantly, there was never a time that I was unable to reach someone, get an answer to a question, or make an appointment for follow-up. They took time to answer all questions and never made me feel like I was bothering them or being too "needy."
Describe the protocols Nigel Pereira used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
When I first started seeing him I had been trying to conceive for about a year unsuccessfully at the age of 38. He explained basically everything about human reproduction and how age affects it, did base line testing and then discussed a strategy with me. Timed intercourse did not yield a positive pregnancy test the first cycle so, as we had discussed when I first consulted with him, for the second cycle he prescribed clomid. With timed intercourse I conceived on the second cycle with Dr. Pereira.

I was lucky enough to have good insurance so I think I paid a $50 co-pay at each visit, $20 for the ultrasound and $30 for blood work.

He always had an answer to our problems and a clear solution for the next steps.
