I love Dr. Hughes! She is supportive and extremely professional and always answered all my questions. Her staff is the best and so caring and knowledgeable. I had a successful IVF at the age of 40 years old and now expecting my first child. I am so grateful to Dr. Hughes for making my dream come true.

My Husband and I have tried several times to grow our little family, and because of some complications in the past we were starting to lose hope. Best thing that happened to us was to meet Dr. Hughes and her amazing staff. Since day one we felt cared of. Wait time was never an issue it was mostly 15 mins. Speaking to a person in the office was always easy. Lab results were always communicated and all questions and concerns were always addressed. All procedures were well explained and there was never an issue with the insurance. We were able to get pregnant after 9 months, treatments were tailored to our own need and were never aggressive Thank you very much Dr. Hughes for making our dream come true and also Iliana, Hyland, and Libia for their support during this journey.

Forever grateful to Dr Hughes. Without Dr Hughes and her wonderful staff my husband and I wouldn't have our precious baby. I went for my initial consult June 2018 and was pregnant by Sept 2018. Dr Hughes is very compassionate, thoroughly explains what is going to happen with each part of your treatment and takes time to answer any questions.

Let me start by saying that seeing a fertility specialist is stressful and a very sensitive time. My wife and I were nervous to say the least. We picked Dr. Hughes after going through a list of in-network doctors and cross referencing reviews. I have to tell you that although it was stressful at times, Dr. Hughes and her staff were nothing short of amazing. They are attentive and helpful. Libia is so kind, caring and makes getting blood drawn multiple times a week, pleasant! Ileana, the nurse, is sweet and helpful and always willing to answer a million questions. Hyland is helpful with billing issues and always friendly. I don't know exactly where to begin with Dr. Hughes. She is incredibly good at what she does. Very precise and very cautious which we grew to appreciate. She made sure to adjust medications as necessary and help us get pregnant safely. She was caring and sweet at every appointment. She was confident she would get us our pregnancy and she did just that!

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Hughes and her amazing staff. Our initial appointment was in March and by August we were pregnant! Dr. Hughes truly gets to know each of her patients and develops a specialized plan that she feels will be the best way to get pregnant quickly and safely. Whenever I called off hours with an issue Dr. Hughes immediately called me back & answered my questions. Everyone on her staff is so knowledgeable and kind, I never felt like I was just a number. AMAZING Team.

After 7 years of infertility treatments we met Dr.Hughes. It was her expertise, patience, and compassion that made all the difference. Because of her, we have the family we always wanted. We are forever grateful. Her staff, especially nurse Ileana is an asset to her practice. She always helped calm nerves during such a difficult journey and was helpful in every way. Highly recommend anyone going through infertility.
