I highly recommend Dr. Benjamin Curtis! I had multiple surgeries on both my left and right elbows and wrists involving my ulnar nerve. He was always very knowledgeable, personable, and funny.

Choose a different office. This place is all about the money. They collected my co pay and then charged 500 bucks for an office visit. If you don't pay the entire balance in two weeks off to collections with you. No offering of payments and charge whatever they want. There are other choices...more

I'm very sorry that you had a poor experience...this is highly unusual. Our billing follows the standards set by the government and insurance plans and does not charge any more than these standards. We do allow for payment plans and we make these arrangements regularly with many patients. The billing dept makes at least 3 attempts to contact patients (via letter & phone call) to make these arrangements. I hope that your orthopaedic condition improves. All the best to you.

If you have to go to a hand specialist I definitely recommend Dr. Curtis! He is friendly, thorough, and has a good sense of humor. Answers any questions you may have and is an excellent doctor. His staff is friendly and welcoming and make scheduling appointments a breeze.
