I'm writing this review on behalf of my father (who is computer illiterate)who wants to express his appreciation for Dr. Peng.His experience was nothing short of spectacular. My father lives out of the state and commutes up to two hours, and Dr. Peng makes it all worth while. He successfully performed a hydrocelectomy procedure on my father who is very pleased with the end results. Dr. Peng conducts himself in a professional and very friendly manner and gets a thumbs up from us.
I was not able to urinate, urinary retention. I was diagnosed with atonic neurgenic bladder. I was examined by three urologist who all told me the same thing, that I had to have a metroffinov procedure wearing a permanent urine bag, or self catheterization. I would no longer be able to urinate in a normal manner. I then visited Dr Benjamin Peng. Dr. Peng inserted a prostatic stent, within minutes I was able to urinate

Dr. Peng is a very professional doctor. He takes care his patients. He followed my case and called me to make sure I am doing well during my recovery period. He explained my test result in detail,and make sure I fully understand my case.

Dr. Peng is a great urologist and a compassionate doctor. He performed a lithotripsy on me for a bladder stone. He explained the procedure to myself and to my father. He performed it under general anesthesia in NY -Presbyterian Downtown Hospital. His surgical staff was quite professional and introduced themselves before surgery and explained their roles. Dr. Peng went to speak to my father before and after the surgery. All was well and I am doing much better after the removal of the stone.

Dr. Benjamin Peng is the understudy of my urologist of 29 years whom has since retired. I can say unequivocally that Dr. Peng’s modern approach to medical procedures is far superior to his predecessor. Furthermore he is constantly endeavoring to make refinements to improve his patient’s health and make office visits less frequent. He understands that being a doctor is about taking care of people rather than status in life or driving a Mercedes. His fees are also very reasonable in today’s market

cold, unfriendly, ignore my questions after the surgery.

Dr Peng is a doctor's doctor. That's the highest compliment a physician like myself can give to another doctor. As a surgeon (although not in urology) I have a dozen urologist friends. I chose Ben, as did many of my friends, above all the rest, without hesitation. Superbly educated and trained at Columbia, Ben possesses an easy, unassuming and warm bedside manner. My recent vasectomy is a case in point. I was back to work the next day ! Superb !

I am 67 years old and, as you would suppose, have been a patient of many doctors over the years, and Dr. Peng is without a doubt one of the finest I have ever encountered. He is incredibly intelligent, knowledgeable, and compassionate. His office staff is wonderful; they are as courteous and helpful as can be. You could not hope to find a better doctor or a more pleasant and efficient office staff.

Dr. Benjamin Peng is as good as it gets in the medical field.He's very professional, friendly and have lots of wisdom. I've been a patient of his since 2011 . My first procedure was circumcision. Before going to him i was a bit nervous about the procedure, but he clearly explained to me with Professionalism, and confidence on what he would be doing .After the consultation i was very confident that he'd do a great job, and that he DID . The procedure was painless, and healed well and quickly.
