There are not enough words to say how grateful I am to Dr. Pena and his staff. From my first visit, I felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands. Besides being extremely knowledgeable, Dr. Pena is so kind. He not only takes the time to explain things but he also takes the time to make me laugh. It is so rare to find a doctor that practices from his heart and I am so grateful to Dr. Pena for going above and beyond to make my dreams come true. I would give him a million stars if I could.

Good job Dr. Pena, you dont only deserve 5 star, but maximum star there can be.

Dr. Pena is the third infertility doctor I've seen. He listened to me and was attentive to my medical history. I finally have answers to my questions (after 9 years and multiple miscarriages).

We highly recommend Dr. Pena and his staff.

Dr. Pena was the most amazing doctor. He was attentive, thorough, personable, compassionate, and always made me feel comfortable and confident in his care and judgment. The staff made me feel like family every time I visited (which felt like a lot!). Although I am thrilled to be pregnant, I am so sad to "graduate", and Dr. Pena put it. He helped me find a great OBGYN, but I will still miss him and Long Island IVF. I will be back and would recommend anyone! After a long and frustrating journ

in Holtsville, NY |
Dr Pena is a very thoughtful, compassionate & knowledgeable doctor. He takes the time out to answer any question you may have & my husband & I never felt rushed when we were talking to him. It was great to see him at almost all my visits and knowing that he was doing all the procedures and tests. I have tried IVF a few times with other doctors that have never worked. I didn't feel as comfortable with the other doctors as I did with Dr Pena. Maybe thats why I have 2 miracles now
in Kings Park, NY |
Dr. Pena is a very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and compassionate doctor. He takes time to get to know his patient, and understand their needs. Dr. Pena is thorough in explaining what to expect during the process, as well as providing risks, and success rates. His bedside manner truly wonderful. He took time to answer all questions, and clarify any areas that required clarification. His staff is equally as attentive and supportive; providing necessary information along the way.

Dr. Pena and his office staff are wonderful! My husband and I found Dr. Pena to be not only extremely knowledgeable and effective, but also attentive and extremely calming and humorous during what could otherwise be a potentially difficult time.

We are expecting our first child (actually children, as it is twins) and could not be any happier or more grateful to him and the ladies in the office.

Highly recommend Dr Peña and his team!

Dr. Pena and his staff are great. They all have wonderful bed side manner and always treated me with great respect and care, like I was a person, not just another cash cow. I had a terrible experience with another doctor at the LI IVF family and felt like I was completely lost and had no control in my own treatment. Dr. Pena changed that and made me feel confident and that we were definitely going to over come my diagnosis of infertility. I am now currently 7 and a half weeks pregnant. Thank you
