Dr. Pereira and his staff are professional and compassionate. I was experiencing very painful esophageal spasms and could not swallow. Immediately following surgery, I felt relief. Now 6 weeks post surgery, I am completely back to myself and able to eat and swallow normally. Can’t thank Dr....Read More

Be warned. Stay away. Terrible staff - Office will loose your documents and than claim never received. They will lie to you about hospital availability and you will end up waiting for months for the surgery.

I would very much recommend Dr. Pereira for surgery. Mine went very well no medications were needed for pain. Hackensack Hospital has the best, most caring nurses I've come across. I am very pleased with all services I was given.
