What People Say About Dr. Alan Benvenisty, MD

Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Superb Surgeon, very caring, extremely thorough and helpful. He performed a kidney transplant on my wife in May of 2000 at Columbia Presbyterian and now, a week shy of 20 years later, her kidney is still functioning great. We cannot say enough about Dr. Benvenisty and how he has positively impacted our lives. We will forever be grateful to him.

This review is not for the doctor himself, as I never got to meet him or be treated by him. This is for the office manager who made my experience incredibly uncomfortable. She made scheduling an appointment and asking questions so difficult by talking over me as I would speak that I cancelled my appointment because I don't feel comfortable going to an office where the staff in its entirety isn't helpful.

Do not go to this guy for sclerotherapy. He left me with horrible hematomas after assaulting my legs with heavy squeezing to remove blood. My legs looked better before his horrible work. He had no solution and kept cancelling appointments I made. He may be good for liver transplants, but he should not be doing cosmetic work. He is course, arrogant and uncaring. Go elsewhere!!

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.
