    Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.

    Excellent bedside manner and excellent surgeon--would highly recommend!
    in New York, NY |
    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.
