Not for women who want to get pregnant – A horrible, greedy man.
In my most desperate hours I went to him after reading his reviews and links to fertility studies from his web site. He was charming, articulate and appeared very knowledgeable.
He was anything except knowledgeable and the charm was the snake's venom that drew me into his (what I thought was) care but was the start of a gut wrenching battle and humiliation of being mislead and taken advantage of.
It’s not that we wasted close to $10,000 on ineffective treatment and horrible herbs but the time my husband and I lost. But the worst part of this was going in with so much trust only to find out that I was dealing with a man who just saw me as a check book and took advantage of my desperation.
He is a man who knows how to advertise and sweet talk but does not know how to cure. I wish I could confront all the bogus reviews that I believed and tell them what he did to me.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine do work. Just don’t go to this guy.

Worked for us! – We were given the sadest news possible that we might not even qualify for an IVF so we had to wait for another cycle to test my FSH again... in the interim I discovered Dr. Berkeley and went to see him for a consultation... he was very thorough and asked questions my fertility specialist hadn't. We began treatments with him whilst we waited for my next cycle to arrive and return for that FSH test to verify if I even qualified. We went out less, went bike riding every night and were eating super healthy. We also tried the herbs.. yuk but I was desperate to become a Mom so I drank it :) Seven sessions later... I was pregnant... only went back to the fertility specialist to confirm the pregnancy and there it was a little blip "the heartbeat"... saying we were overjoyed is an understatement.. Dr, Berkeley commented how I was his quickest result! My daughter was born 3/07 and we feel we owe it all to Dr. Berkeley for giving us hope and now our precious little girl. She now has a baby brother too! I hope that everyone I have recommended is as lucky as we've been. Thank you again. Mrs. B.
Fabulous Service – I've been seeing Dr. Berkley since April 2008. He has been professional and respectful. I've being diagnosed with unexplained infertility and he has continued to change and modified my treatment at no cost to me. I?ve spent countless hours at the office and know that if you want professional service you have come to the right place.
heard awful story – I just wanted to say that I heard a disturbing story regarding something Dr. Berkley said. It had to do with charging inflated rates to do fertility treatments because "these women are desperate - they'll pay ANYTHING"
Kudos to you, Dr. Berkley, for taking advantage of women in horrific situations rather than doing what you do because you geniunely want to help them!
I would definitely take my business elsewhere!
Simply Great!! – I visited Dr. Berkley out of desperation after 4 failed IVF cycles, number of surgeries and serious uterine issues. The moment I met him, I felt like I was in right place. He is extremely knowledgeable in his filled and knows what he is doing. The first month after beginning his treatment and herbal tea he prescribed me, I got PREGNANT. Unfortunely, my pregnancy resulted in an early mis carriage, however it gave me great hope. I waited couple of years since then and recently went to Dr. Berkley for follow up treatments. I've already decided to go for surrogate treatment due to some complications and Dr. Berkley treated me according to that. I'm very happy to let you know that my treatment was successful. I created 22 healthy eggs at age of 34 and our surrogate is pregnant. Don't loose hope. See Dr. Berkley now.
Wonderful outlook; Great personality and compassion – Not usually one for online reviews, but Dr. Berkley and his team are exceptional at what they do and warrant due recognition and support. We have experienced infertility for 7 years, and after several failed pregnancies through IUI, IVF and the guidance of a couple of reproductive endocrinologists, it became clear that something else had to give. We found Dr. Berkley through a local outreach seminar in Westchester and knew this was a good idea from the start. His approach to eastern and western medicine and holistic views are evident from the start. He immediately puts you at ease. After a regiment of accupuncture treatments twice a week, we went through a frozen IVF transfer, and are nearly 11 weeks pregnant with TRIPLETS. Dr. Berkley and his center have helped us get farther than before. The NY and Westchester Offices are great at what they do. THANK YOU!!
Exceptional Infertility Support – Dr. Michael Berkley is an experienced, knowledgable and kind acupuncturist who specializes in infertility. By the time I found him (on referral from my reproductive endocrinologist) I had seen 3 reproductive endocrinologists, had two surgeries, one miscarriage and one failed IVF. I initiated acupuncture for 3 months, which was amazing. All stress tension in my shoulders disappeared and my endometriosis symptoms improved. I began herbs and that very month became pregnant naturally. Unfortunately I had an early miscarriage, but this was still great progress in my opinion. I again did 3 months of acupuncture while doing another IVF cycle. I failed that cycle but became pregnant naturally just after. I am currently 11 weeks and smiling!! I will see Dr. Berkley again for future conception. I highly recommend him.
Couple grateful for Dr. Berkley – I am writing as an encouragement to couples experiencing the long, difficult road of infertility. We went through several years of alternative treatments prior to finally using western medicine. We had a daughter after IFV when I was 39 years old. We wanted to do IVF again when I was 42 and I was told by our reproductive endocrinologist (excellent reputation and a huge practice in the midwest and west) that I would NEVER conceive and he would not attempt another IVF cycle. I did some research and discovered Dr. Mike Berkley and contacted him for an initial phone appointment. He was WONDERFUL - so warm and helpful -- very knowledgeable. He was also very thorough and answered all my questions. He encouraged me to contact him with any other questions or concerns -- something that never happened with other infertility doctors. Dr. Berkley always answered e-mails/calls quickly and did so himself. This was very impressive after our experience elsewhere ( we never had contact with the doctor unless there was a scheduled appointment and the nurses were not always friendly or helpful. We were planning another IVF cycle at a clinic that specialized in older women and used Dr. Berkley's services to be prepared. I took herbs everyday ordered from a Chinese pharmacy in NYC and Dr. Berkley gave instructions to an acupuncturist in our area for weekly treatments. To our great surprise and delight I BECAME PREGNANT NATURALLY AFTER 3 MONTHS OF THIS PROTOCOL. I gave birth to a healty boy in April of 2006. It is difficult to describe how grateful we are to Mike Berkley. We want to encourge couples to contact him and try it. My only regret is that we have not met Dr. Berkley in person -- we did all of this over the phone and computer. Thanks Mike!!!!!
Hopeful Once Again – I have struggled with infertility for years. At the suggestion of a friend, I visited the Berkley Center. Dr. Berkley showed real sensitivity to my problem. He was knowledgeable, compassionate and kind-hearted. I felt comfortable as well as a sense of relief that all hope was not lost. My huband and I are once again optimistic that we will be able to have the child we have always dreamed of. Thanks, Dr. Berkley! We are so glad we found you!!!
Help yourself to get pregnant – If your trying to conceive and it appears all hope is lost, you must go to the Berkley center. i met so many people there that Dr. Berkley has helped and now he has helped me. This is not a gimmick just sound science, he doesnt treat any condition he knows he cant. You owe it to yourself to meet with him. The staff is courteous and freindly and very sensitive to the reasons you are there.
