in Pittstown, NJ |
Class act surgeon. Very knowledgeable and detail-oriented. I had a large and complicated surgical hernia that Dr Pereira repaired with skill and patience. At 2 weeks post surgery I'm healing nicely. Heard from every nurse on the floor that Pereira is "the best" surgeon. My experience just validates what everyone else is saying.

Are you kidding. This guy is the most competent cutter out there. I have and would continue to put my Life in his hands. And I have dealt with him after he has done 16 hours of surgery and he is sharper then I then I am at my best A good man

Stephen Pereira MD who has been doing & teaching robotic surgery since 2000. He has had done countless numbers of minimally invasive inguinal hernia repairs both both laparoscopic and robot assisted. Results were FANTASTIC… did not even have to take any pain meds... even able to do work at my computer the afternoon of surgery & everyday after. 3.5 weeks post surgery I am walking on treadmill & functioning quite normally as prior to surgery & I do not have the hernia & feeling great! My #1 choice

Treated my sister waiting for biopsy horribly. He kept her waiting for hours while he operated at another outpatient facility and had her scheduled at the same time.
