Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

I needed a hernia repair and Dr. Benbrahim was recommended by a surgeon I had seen for a different procedure. From my first visit I felt confident he was the right surgeon for me. Dr. Benbrahim was incredibly thorough in his testing and analysis of my condition and took ample time explaining the procedure and what to expect afterword. Communication with his office staff has been excellent throughout this process. It's been 2 weeks since my surgery and I'm healing better than I expected.
