Dr. Peress has been open and honest with me. He has no issues answering questions. Be prepared to ask them during for visits. He can be very serious in his tone and demeanor. He just wants to do his job and help you understand. The office staff is amazing, kind and empathic.

I love how Dr. Peress is no nonsense. He didn't question my decision for an iud without a prior pregnancy (unlike previous Dr) I feel that he is very knowledgeable and if you ever have questions he fully explains everything.

I'm about to have my second child and Dr. Peress has been my OBGYN both times. He's very nice, professional, and knowledgeable. He always asks if I have any questions or concerns in every visit and gives me the attention I need when I do.
