Your trust is our top concern.

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

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Ben is the best. He has a very calm and kind demeanor. My kids think he’s great. He has the perfect balance of intervening when necessary and a watchful waiting approach when it makes sense. We moved but still drive across town for appts. He’s worth the drive!

Dr. Ben is great! He’s been our pediatrician since our daughter was a baby. He’s incredibly knowledgeable. When our older daughter who was seeing a different pediatrician at the time had the shingles none of the doctors in the office knew what was wrong with her but they consulted with Dr. Ben and he knew right away! He’s awesome. We always feel confident in him and the care we receive. I would highly recommend Dr. Ben and this practice.

Dr. Almasanu is kind, caring and patient. He always answers all my questions with detailed answers. He talks to my children directly and they really love him. He realized very early on that our older child had food allergies. I would highly recommend him to other parents.

Dr. Ben is one of the kindest and most attentive physicians I have ever met....which is saying a lot as I have been a nurse for 13 years and am a mom to two little ones. I always leave feeling heard, validated, and understood. He is thorough and his clinical knowledge is impressive. He always takes time to explain things so that both the children and I understand him. I am grateful to have such a wonderful physician foe my children.

Dr. Ben listens and cares. He makes sure my son knows his questions are important by paying attention and answering expertly and clearly. He is extremely knowledgeable, considerate, respectful, and thorough. How often are kids actually excited to go to the doctor? And parents know absolutely they can trust Dr. Ben.

Dr. Behjamin Almasanu is the best Peds doctor in Central Ohio! While most doctors are just in and out, Dr. Ben isn't, he is very thorough and personable, with awesome bed side manners.He also actually takes the time to listen to you while you're expressing your concerns and or asking questions, then answering them in layman's terms so you can fully understand. Also some docs likes to "push meds" but not him, he tries other alternatives before even considering meds (which is AMAZING).My children (all 4) love him!! Dr. Ben has made them feel so comfortable that they tell him everything.. All in all if you need a peds doctor with awesome staff Dr. Benjamin Almasanu should be #1 on your list to call!

Dr. Ben is one of the kindest and most patient doctors I’ve met. He’s always been very knowledgeable & great with my daughter. Recently, he examined my daughter & sent us to Children’s Hospital. She was admitted same day for RSV/Bronchilolitis symptoms. The 1st & 2nd nights, Dr. Ben made personal phone calls to me to ensure we were okay and get updates from us. Very generous doctor. I remember that when I first had my daughter he was very attentive to my needs as a first time mom as well.
