  1. I highly recommend Mike Berkley. After 6 failed IVFs I came to Mike and was successful the 7th time around I credit Mike for helping to make it happen.
  1. I felt safe and confident, Dr. Berkley is very knowledgeable in his field. I feel very confident and less stressed during every visit. I've had two miscarriages before. However, with Dr. Berkley, I felt safe that my baby will grow healthy enough to reach the 2nd trimester. I never worried about having another miscarriage with Dr. Berkley. He always answers my concerns and would do additional research for me, if needed.
  1. Exceptional Health Care Practitioner, There are no exact words to describe how grateful and blessed I am to have met Mike Berkley. He is truly the most compassionate, caring, emphatic kind ,honest , and extremely knowledgeable health care practitioner. From the first moment when I met Mike I knew I was in the best hands. Mike Berkley is honest and upfront and has given me the best advice when it comes to my fertility challenges. He truly wants to help a does everything he can to help you. With Mike's herbal chinese blend and acupuncture sessions, I have seen a huge change in my body!!!! I am super excited because I feel that his sessions truly help!!!! If it was not for Mikes care and persistence I would not be in the place I am today. Mike Berkley is an angel sent from above. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Mike Berkley. I drive out each time from Long Island NY to Manhattan to have his acupuncture sessions. He is truly worth it!!! He really wants to help couples conceive. Thank you Mike. Me and Al are truly grateful to you
  1. Amazing Fertility Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine Center!!!, Mike Berkley is absolutely wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable, warm and supportive. His office is also beautiful and very zen...the perfect space to feel relaxed and comfortable. I wholeheartedly recommend Mike to anyone looking to try to improve their fertility with acupuncture and/or herbs. He's the best!
  1. Excellent care and attention provided by Mike, I came to Mike for acupuncture right before my third egg retrieval. Although the first two retrievals were fine, I had only produced a small number of viable embryos. I was quite despondent when I came to Mike, willing to try everything to improve my chances. Mike was very reassuring and extremely positive. Combining my doctor's protocol with acupuncture doubled my embryo outcomes and now I am even pregnant! Although early days, I'm hopeful that continued acupuncture and Mike's positive reassurances will make this a healthy pregnancy. I've often said to him that he should combine his services with therapy, excellent listener!
  1. Experienced and Trusted Acupuncture Care, I've seen Mike over four IVF cycles. From the first visit, Mike has taken the time and interest to learn about the treatment protocols from my IVF physician. He is extremely knowledgeable in acupuncture and the fertility process. Mike provides the care and comfort needed during a stressful IVF process. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need!
  1. Mike is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and is a caring practitioner i trust and am so glad i found. i came to him 2 months ago with very irregular cycles and a year of trying to conceive. he is supportive, listens well, and addresses my concerns with knowledge and compassion. he also is very punctual and makes himself available via text or phone if any questions come up outside of our visit. under his care i am now 5 weeks pregnant and looking forward to continuing his treatments to help ensure my pregnancy continues to be healthy.
  1. Game changer, I am so grateful for acupuncture at The Berkley Center. Mr. Berkley has been incredibly supportive in my journey. He is attentive to my needs even when those needs may vary per session. He is adaptive and always warm and welcoming. He's super accommodating and flexible with scheduling too. Once in the session, I can always feel the acupuncture making it's way through my body while on the table. I have left feeling like nothing or no one could rattle me. I feel calm, relaxed, and he will try a new "pattern" or placement of the needles to mix it up. I believe he was meant to do this work - a natural intuitive healer. He approaches each session with a gentle and kind aura. I'm grateful for acupuncture has become my weekly self-care go-to that always works to combat my anxiety and stress.
  1. You MUST see Mike...like yesterday!, It has been an amazing experience. Since the first day Mike took the time to listen to every detail. Always took the time to listen to everything you have to say. He is positive and confident which was very important for my husband and I. Before I was stressed, had anxiety and unable to sleep. With just day one of the treatment my husband and I notice a major difference. I was finally able to sleep through the entire night! We had a miscarriage and a failed IVF cycle so my husband and I decided to start Acupuncture before we decided our next IVF cycle but to our surprise, we got pregnant NATURALLY!!! It took a few months but this really helped!!! I am so happy with the treatment and the results I definitely recommend Mike to anyone! Please give him a call! He will help!
  1. Grateful to find Mike!, Mike is the best fertility acupuncturist I've every worked with. I've spent a lot of time and money finding a great fertility acupuncturist and I'm just so grateful I found Mike. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, and kind. He spent a lot of time on the initial visit to really understand what my issues are and then tailored his treatment to my particular problem. Mike has not only given me hope and optimism, but also tangible results. As an added bonus, his office is beautiful and serene. Thank you Mike!
  1. Game changer for fertility, I've been seeing Mike for a few years now. I was struggling to get pregnant and was diagnosed with a low ovarian reserve and poor egg quality. After a few months of seeing Mike I got pregnant. Although its impossible to say why, I truly believe that regular sessions with Mike made a huge difference in my egg quality. Mike's experience and knowledge for fertility acupuncture is unparalleled in the NYC area. I am currently seeing him again as I try for my 2nd. I wouldn't consider trying to conceive without his acupuncture treatments.
  1. Very compassionate and understanding, mike is very knowledgeable and compassionate. would recommend over and over again.
  1. One of the best Fertility Acupuncturist in NYC!!, I have been seeing Mike for almost 2 years. He was introduced by my previous acupuncturist who was retired and I was seeing Mike since then. I had severe endometriosis (stage 4), and I had 3 failed IVF transfers and a robotic surgery remove fibroid and endometriosis. As one of the worst case whom going through this infertility journey, I believe acupuncture provided excellent results in improving egg quality and transfer result. With almost 1 years of treatment from Mike, I was able to get pregnant. Mike is extremely knowledgeable in both Eastern and Western medicines in the reproductive field. Infertility is very stressful journey and he provided me not only the treatment and medical knowledge, he always supports and encourages me in this journey. I highly recommend Mike to someone who is looking for help in infertility.
  1. Mike Berkley is an Infertility Expert!, I came to Mike after multiple rounds of IVF. It seemed like nothing worked for me. I had barely any good embryos frozen and had one failed transfer. He spent two hours with me on take-on asking very detailed questions and figuring out what the plan would be for the next IVF cycle. He ended up prescribing acupuncture and herbs. Weeks passed and by the time of my retrieval it had been about a month I was on the herbs and acupuncture. And as Mike says, it takes a village... so between his work and my new endochrinologist, this cycle changed everything. I ended up with the most mature and best quality eggs that turned into embryos with no issue (quadruple the number I had ever had before in 7 rounds!). Mike helped me end my constant IVF cycling and showed me my body is not a failure. His bed side manner is also quite comforting and he is optimistic at the right times. I had seen two other acupuncturists before I came to Mike in past rounds, Mike is the only expert I recommend!
  1. Compassionate and caring!, Mike takes the time to understand his clients prior to the treatment, this is helpful as you feel like someone is looking through your particular case and creating a customized plan for you. Through the initial consult Mike asked several questions and created a well rounded understanding before coming to the conclusion of how we should be treated. He takes the time to explain the process and is clear about his role and guidance through the process. The treatment area is calming and relaxing and there seems to be extra care taken in this place.
  1. I have been going to Mike for about 1 year for acupuncture as part of my infertility regimen and every acupuncture visit is great. Mike takes time to listen at what is going on with my infertility treatment, life story and everything else. He makes you comfortable from the start to the end. Very accommodating in terms of your schedule. His place is clean and quiet which is nice when you are being treated for something stressful as infertility. I can't say enough great things about Mike and his practice. He is highly recommended.
  1. Mike is the Best!, I have been a patient of Mike Berkley for the past 5 months. He is a knowledgeable, down-to-earth, experienced and caring practitioner. He conducted a very thorough new patient consultation and answered all of my questions. He also gave me a good idea of what to expect in terms of my treatment. He is always responsive, punctual and has made himself available to answer questions about my treatment, even if after his normal office hours. I would definitely recommend Mike Berkley to anyone who may need his services. You will not be disappointed!

I can’t recommend him enough.

  1. I'm 30 weeks pregnant!!!!! Thank you Mike for all of your support!
    My husband and I were trying for well over a year to conceive to no avail. As a fellow Acupuncturist I decided to have a consultation with Mike to see what he suggested as my next step. Meeting with Mike eased my fears of what was to come because he made me feel like I wasn't "defective", he suggested I get the proper blood work to get the ball rolling. He was very knowledgeable in western medicine, and has a long history of working side by side with endocrinologist and that made me very comfortable! I took his advise, I felt empowered that I knew what to do to try and conceive. I ate properly, started yoga to reduce stress, and started taking herbal medicine to help with my well-being as well as support any deficiency Mike felt would help achieve my upcoming pregnancy. The first time at IVF was not a success, but Mike didn't let me down, and he continued to treat me every week, as well as before and after my IVF procedure 3months later. Today I'm grateful to him for helping me conceive!!!! He's a God sent gift! Thank You Mike!
    Sincerely with love,
  1. Mike is wonderfully caring, patient and knowledgeable. I came to him after two years' ofIVF treatments. I am now 20 weeks pregnant and attribute this, in big part, to Mike. The office surroundings are tranquil and he has a very calming presence--just what someone who is going through a very emotionally and physically trying time needs.
  1. Mike was incredible! He was so great on an intake phone call explaining the whole process so thoroughly. He made sure to squeeze me in last minute to get acupuncture before and after my IVF transfer. He has shared so much knowledge about the process, throughout my journey of becoming pregnant to now being 14 weeks with a healthy baby! I recommend him to anyone that is interested in reproductive acupuncture to better their chances for IVF transfer. He is so friendly, kind, smart, informative, and flexible with scheduling.
  1. A Big Thank You to Mike Berkley! – Four years ago when we where going through IVF for the first time I went to Mike Berkley for acupuncture. The fact that he was co-located and recommended by my fertility doctor made the decision easy. Mike Berkley was always very encouraging and kind. His ability to calm my nerves in conjunction with the acupuncture treatments was undoubtedly a significant factor in our ability to conceive a beautiful baby girl.
    Two years later when we were trying to have another baby we had a harder time. We went through a few rounds of unsuccessful IVF and a miscarriage. Through it all Mike Berkley was very supportive and when he finally recommended that both my husband and I have acupuncture and take Chinese herbs we decided to go for it so that we would at least have the peace of mind of knowing we tried everything. I'm not going to lie, the herbs were disgusting, but we stuck with it and it paid off, this time the embryologist called our embryos "to die for".
    We firmly believe that Mike Berkeley and his treatments were a major part in our success and we owe him a huge debt of gratitude for our two beautiful girls now 3 years and 6 months old.
  1. Berkeley Center Acupuncture WORKS! – I am a healthy 33 year old woman. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for 7 months when we decided to try acupuncture with Mike Berkeley. After my first three weeks of treatment, twice a week, I had the most incredible experience. I have suffered from paralyzing menstrual cramps for over a decade but after the first six acupuncture treatments the menstrual cramping and pain was reduced by at least 70%. It was the first time I didn't need to take ANY pain medication. Two weeks later, we finally conceived! We are incredibly grateful to everyone at the Berkeley Center for Reproductive Wellness.
  1. Why Mike Berkley may be an iconoclast but he's a Master! – Yes, Mike Berkley may be one of very definite opinions and beliefs but that is due to the fact that he has taken the time to truly research and investigate what he espouses.
    While he is a person of divergent natures at times, this is what makes him unique in that the GENIUS of this practitioner is that he has proven experience in these beliefs and opinions.
    It takes an evolved persona and one who has learned that quite often in the medical field, we don't hear the truth...it's either sugar-coated or left out.
    Mike Berkley is one of the most compassionate empathetic providers I have ever worked with and his knowledge from both Eastern and Western modalities, almost unsurpassed.
    Is he eccentric as some point out here, talk about personal issues...YES and this is what makes him connect with our humanity.
    Of course, he truly understands the medical issues and origins...but because through careful discourse, has challenged traditional medicine and even Chinese medicine, he has developed techniques which deliver RESULTS...and has taken every detail of his Center into consideration.
    I started working with Berkley after 6 years of failed conceptions...due to mostly, bad or negligent advice from reproductive community both in ny and FLA....and he was the ONLY one who supported me in extending my journey to other areas that others wrote off...and expanded my educational knowledge...not just with a "do as i say" attitude but more one of here's WHY i think we should try this...and educated me about my body more. After working with him for just a few months, i was able to see other options open for me (he's one of the ONLY board certified herbalists that uses custom-blended herbs for fertility) and once i did this, I successfully conceived twins in the 11th hour of my fertility. A sacred rite no one should ever take lightly. Thus if he shares from a personal perspective, it's because he too has personally dealt with it....I highly recommend him for anyone and have done so with many happy patients with successful results. For those of you that say he's self-absorbed, how many reproductive endos do you know that would even give you the time and energy that Berkley does? So while it may not always be the hand holding you may think YOU want, it's the hand holding you need to get results. You're not marrying or dating him, you're going to him for support and results. And that he delivers. With a huge dose of love and compassion.
  1. Mike is Amazing – My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over two years now, using assisted reproductive technologies as well as a variety of complementary treatments (like acupuncture, herbs, Maya abdominal massage, meditation, etc.). I’ve been to three fertility acupuncturists in the city, but for one reason or another, never felt like they were the right match for me. I met Mike last year at a free seminar he offered on Traditional Chinese Medicine. I was impressed by his depth and breadth of knowledge and the amount of personalized attention he gave to each woman in the group that night. Mike displayed a tremendous wealth of knowledge both about Traditional Chinese Medicine and about Western reproductive endocrinology. Months later, I decided to start seeing Mike a month or so before my scheduled IVF attempt. I felt that, of all the acupuncturists I’d seen, Mike was the most well informed and personable. Mike did recommend three months of solid acupuncture in preparation for an IVF cycle, but I was determined to forge ahead in one month as originally planned. Mike was reassuring and said that, even if this cycle didn’t work (which, sadly, it didn’t), I’d be that much better prepared for my next attempt if I started regular acupuncture treatments then.
    During my intake, Mike was thorough, attentive, and funny. He has a quirky, endearingly cocky, irreverent personality that has been perceived negatively by a reviewer on this site -- but the real truth is: Mike is so great. Sure, his prices are on the higher end of the spectrum, but he offers fantastic package deals that bring his fee down lower than any other acupuncturist I’ve seen. And contrary to what one reviewer said, he’s not out to financially exploit us “desperate” trying-to-conceive women. He truly cares about us! He has built his practice around us! Read his poetry (sometimes included in his newsletters) and you’ll see that he has an uncanny ability to “get” what this painful fertility journey is like for us, to commiserate, and to offer hope and help. I walk out of our sessions each week feeling listened to and cared for (which is more than I can say for my RE!). Mike’s office is beautiful, his receptionist, Lexie, is great, and if he’s ever away, he has an amazing acupuncturist who covers for him. The Berkley Center is definitely excellent on all counts. Don’t listen to the naysayers. Mike is amazing.
    The best part of my Berkley experience has been the unexpected positive pregnancy test I got this month while I was taking a little break in between ART cycles! I was scheduled to do another IVF in January, but lo and behold, I got a positive home pregnancy result the day before Christmas. I’ve been seeing Mike twice weekly for about three months now (precisely the amount of time he suggested I’d need to get things in balance) and I know his treatment had everything to do with my wonderfully, amazingly unexpected pregnancy!
    Good luck to you. I hope Mike can help you as much as he has helped me.
  1. 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.
  1. Fabulous Service –Mike 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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!!
  1. 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.
  1. 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!!!!
  1. 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!!!
  1. 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.
  1. Fertility Specialist with an Impeccable Reputation – I?ve been involved in Chinese Medicine all my adult life, as a practitioner, pharmacist, and educator. In our profession, Dr. Berkley is recognized as a pioneer in the field of Reproductive Medicine. I have heard nothing but overwhelming praise for his work. What distinguishes Dr. Berkley is his unique breadth of knowledge in Reproductive Patho-physiology, and integrating that knowledge with Traditional Chinese Medicine. He set the standard in our field. Without question, if you are looking for a fertility practitioner, make sure you check out the Berkley Center.
  1. Thank you Mike – I feel so much gratitude torwards Mike Berkley and his fabulous staff. After two IVF cycles I felt depleted and depressed. Mike made me feel at ease and some how he gave me hope. I am thirty-nine years old and I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy six months ago...thanks to Mike and the Chinese herbs he made me drink everyday for weeks! I feel so fulfilled right now and my hope is that I can pay this forward to someone elso who has lost hope.
  1. After I was told I would not be able to conceive naturally, I looked for different alternatives. I found and contacted Mike Berkley and I am so glad I reached out to him. He is very supportive, encouraging and tries to accommodate you as much as he can. He worked based on my schedule. Mike always told me to not lose hope since everything seemed to be against me. After 4 to 5 months of doing acupuncture I conceived naturally and now I have a beautiful baby boy!. Since accupuncture helped me so much in improving my egg quality I am considering in returning back for future pregnancies. I definitely recommend The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness to anyone. He is very knowledgeable and knows what he is doing.
    Thank you so Mike!

  1. I went to Mike for acupuncture to assist with fertility. I am advanced maternal age and wanted to improve my egg quality. I worked with Mike for 4/5 months before seeing an RE. During this time Mike was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable about acupuncture and fertility- he was also was consistently on time and prompt with his services. I learned a lot from Mike and to the delight of my husband and I conceived following his treatments. I am convinced that seeing Mike and taking the herbs he prescribed is the reason why my egg quality improved. Mike is also a caring guy who provided great emotional support throughout the process. If we decide to try again, I will absolutely going back to him to prepare my body. Thank you Mike!
