Our short term plan with the amazing, Dr. Hughes, became even shorter than we could have imagined. We were struggling to get pregnant and found Dr. Hughes and her amazing and incredible staff. First meeting her, we discussed our plan to help us conceive and she was incredibly honest, knowledgeable, understanding, passionate, confident and relieving knowing she was going to be with us every step of the way. Any question or concern, Dr. Hughes and her staff were always there to answer and help!

I would absolutely recommend this doctor if you are having any infertility issues. The office staff was absolutely amazing. They always welcome you with a warm smile. I had my daughter come to my appointments and they were always very nice and kind to her as well. I always felt like I was informed as to what the plan of action was at the time which to me was very important. My husband and I are grateful for the wonderful care I received and for the great results in working with her.
Dr. Hughes is an amazing doctor and is so gentle and caring. She really makes sure you feel comfortable, goes through everything thoroughly, and answers any questions you may have. She is a true miracle helping me get pregnant with both of my children. I can't begin to express how grateful we are and how amazing she truly is! Her staff is also really amazing, helping any way they can and accommodating as much as possible!
Dr. Patricia was so warm and caring right from the first meeting,she actually took her own time to thoroughly go through all my reports from previous ivf facility and in a long time I actually felt like there are doctors who care. I did saline sonogram at her clinic which went very smooth and was going to come back for further procedures aftet returning from vacation in couple of months. But i guess she was lucky charm and before i could return back i conceived on my own the very same cycle.

Excellent experience from beginning to end at every appointment. Dr. Hughes and her staff are always professional, happy and welcoming. They are articulate, detailed and patient with every question. This past year was my best doctor experience - I wish Dr. Hughes could be my doctor for everything!

Dr. Hughes and her team are excellent. Throughout my one year of treatments with them, I did not have a single thing to complain about. Appointments were quick and easy to make, my lab results were promptly communicated to me, and they were always on top of every detail of my treatment. Dr.Hughes made me feel very comfortable and was always happy to answer my questions and cleared my doubts. Special thanks also to Ilana and Highland for smoothing my journey with them.

Dr Hughes and her staff are phenomenal. I can't say enough good things about them. This experience was not an easy one but with their help and comfort I was able to move past my fears and go through IVF and now officially 9 weeks pregnant. It wasn't easy and had a few upsets along the way but Hughes and her staff never gave up and were always supportive and made this experience as good as it could be. I would highly recommend!! Thank you guys for your support and for my little miracle

I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Hughes and her office! You don't feel like just a number there. Dr. Hughes and staff really takes the time to get to know you and make you feel at ease during what can be an emotional roller coaster. I appreciated the attention I received from both the Dr. and her staff. I especially love Illiana, her NP! The expertise at Dr. Hughes office is reassuring but she never over-promises. I aways felt that she had my best interest at heart.
in Warwick, NY |
I love Dr. Hughes and her entire staff. They made the entire experience easier and more pleasant than I thought it it would be. I highly recommend her to anyone having difficulty trying to conceive.
in Jersey City, NJ |
Dr. Hughes is a great physician that really caters to your individual needs. She explained the plan to me ahead of time and gave me a rationale for her proposed actions. Just be prepared to wait a at least 30 mins for your visit on most occasions. The staff is also really friendly and responsive.
in Rutherford, NJ |
I would love to share my wife's and my greatest experiences with everyone. I would never imagine going through intensive fertility treatment would be really great experience. Dr. Hughes has highly professional and positive attitude and work ethic. I never left my wife alone with any of the appointments because Dr. Hughes and his entire staff provided us professionalism in a very friendly environment. I was a type of person who would not stand being close to hospitals until I met Dr. Hughes.
in East Rutherford, NJ |
Dr. Hughes is a great professional who closely monitor every single step of the treatment. Her treatment schedule is highly suitable for people who has full work load. Her staff are super nice and you do not wait more than 15-20 minutes. She went through all of my pre-controls and came up with a great plan with which both my husband and I were very comfortable. I had perfectly timed, medicated IUI sessions without complication and currently pregnant to a healthy singleton in my first try.
in Hackensack, NJ |
Dr. Hughes helped us get pregnant! We tried IUI and on the third attempt we were blessed with our beautiful boy. Now he is seven months! We can't wait to see Dr. Hughes and her wonderful team again!!

Dr. Hughes and her entire team are truly amazing. Their level of expertise, compassion and kindness is unparalleled. From day one, I felt completely comfortable and welcomed. Dr. Hughes legitimately cares about her patients and goes to great lengths to keep them informed. The entire team has a level of professionalism and bedside manner that I have not experienced anywhere else (and I unfortunately have had many docs in my life). They make you feel like you are the only patient. THE BEST DOCTOR!
in Bergenfield, NJ |
She has a wonderful personality and really made me feel comfortable. I like that she is about options and not just there being only one choice. True professionalism .Every staff member is courteous, friendly and helpful. Dr Hughes is wonderful! She went over my results carefully and answered all my questions. Very caring personality. I LOVE the caring and concerned personality of Dr. Hughes. She is the BEST! Thank u

From the minute I called to make my first appointment with Dr. Hughes, I knew this was the place to go to. I had a long road with Dr. Hughes, and she attended to me always and made me comfortable. I really valued Dr. Hughes' honesty-she never led me on to get my hopes up. The girls in the office always answered the phone and my questions, no matter how silly. It was very hard to say goodbye to this wonderful group. I would recommend to anyone, and will most certainly be back for #2 if need be.
in Hackensack, NJ |
Dr. Hughes has vast experience in this field and has helped us become pregnant after 4 years of trying. I would highly recommend her and her small, friendly office where you get a real person on the line and not a recording. It was easy to get a hold of the Dr. & staff with any concern, big or small. The nursing staff, especially Illiana, is patient, sweet and extremely thorough in explaining all medications. It was bittersweet to leave this friendly office when it was time to move to my OBGYN!
in NJ |
Dr Hughes and her team of girls are extremely professional, knowledgeable, punctual (in comparison to all doctors I have visited in my lifetime), always available and highly successful. I would go there again should I need and will definitely recommend them to any friends/family looking for these services.
