In 2014, I had a prostate infection with a psa reading of 5. This other urologist gave me 2 biopsies because he was unable to confirm a negative result. It was such a painful experience that I did a little research and found Dr Peng. I was under Dr Peng's care for 6 years. Then recently, I had a high psa reading of 17 and Dr Peng took a biopsy that was much less painful with a negative cancer result. When I'm with him I feel confident and completely at ease because he is experienced, knowledgeable and friendly DOCTOR.

I was a complicated case. After an abdominal ultrasound, my initial diagnosis was extensive hydronephrosis with obstructive BPH & a bladder 3 times normal size. I came to my first visit with Dr. Peng from Suffolk County 50 miles away. When I arrived at Dr. Peng’s office, I had been wearing a foley catheter for over 6 weeks. The previous urologist only provided vague responses to my questions & did not have a definitive plan to address my situation. I was very in need of a second opinion. After performing a thorough exam & taking my history, Dr. Peng clearly explained my options and offered a very clear course of action.I had a successful, in-office Urolift procedure, followed by a modified TURP. Dr Peng is an exceptionally skilled urologist who is that rare combination of technical expertise with an informing, calm demeanor. He answered all my questions & reassured me that I would have the desired result & I had very positive results. I highly recommend Dr. Peng for any urologic needs.

I LOVE DR PENG! Dr Peng has been my urologist for a few years now. I found him from reviews of urologists online. He was listed as a top rated urologist in New York City. He has more than lived up to his rating. He’s affable, friendly and informative and a joy to have as a doctor. I ended up having some elective surgery that Dr Peng performed which turned out great. His office staff is friendly and courteous and they speak a multitude of languages. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Peng. You won’t be disappointed!

Excellent doctor with a very attentive and pleasant staff. I have been his patient for many years. He is extremely knowledgeable, attentive to my concerns, and has a great sense of humor. He was a referral by my primary care doctor and I glad she picked him. I have had two surgeries performed by Dr. Peng without any complications and trust his abilities to get the job done right the first time around.

I Thank God for Dr. Benjamin Peng because he is truly a God send. I suffer from BPH and I've been to 3 other Urologist who all have failed in helping me with my problems. Dr. Peng is the Real Deal, he performed a few tests on me that none of the other Urologists even considered and Dr. Peng got right to root of the problems and just after 3 visits I am feeling like I never had a prostate problem at all. Before being treated by Dr. Peng I used to need to get up twice a night to urinate and now I only need to get up once a night. Thus, my quality of life has vastly improved: I'm getting a better night's sleep so I'm feeling more alert and energetic throughout the day. All thanks to Dr. Benjamin Peng. So God Bless you Dr. Peng! I wholeheartedly would recommend Dr. Peng to anyone looking for a Urologist. Don't wait, call and make an appointment, go see him, he's the BEST!!!

As an 80 + year old I came to Dr. Peng after my long time urologist retired. Dr.Peng has been treating my enlarged prostate for the past 6 mos. He is personable, friendly and, above all, an excellent doctor whom I highly recommend. The office personal are very helpful and patient. M.Arnold

Dr. Peng tasted my enlarged prostate very successfully in a non invasive way. I wish I had not wasted time with other urologists who performed unnecessary biopsies!

Just finished my most recent visit with Dr, Peng and he is still the best urologist I have ever met. He has been treating me for prostate cancer for over 4 years now ever since he detected my cancer. He is my friend, first and foremost, and then my trusted doctor. He always has time to talk to me before, after and during treatment and I leave confident that I will be back months later to see him again. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a caring, intelligent and extremely effective urologists!!!!

I have been having elevated PSA since 2/2017. Upon my retirement in 2019, my top priority is to tackle the issue. To do it right, I need to look for a urologist with whom I feel comfortable. I find Dr. Peng to be charismatic who addresses my concerns with confidence. He communicated with me in a soothing way and with small talks while performing medical procedures on me. During the four visits to his office which is staffed with friendly and experienced people, Dr. Peng used a step-by-step approach from DRE to urinalysis test, to 4K Score test that ultimately led to the biopsy while always maintained calm, professional and sympathetic. He even checked on me with a call day after the biopsy. The entire experience hit a high note when it has been confirmed that I have been prostate cancer-free all these years! From this point on, I will only need to pay Dr. Peng a semi-annual visit on my BPH condition. And I just can’t wait to see him and his wonderful staff this December.

I am a physician licensed to practice in the State of New York. When I developed urological problems I was very selective in choosing a urologist. I chose Dr. Benjamin Peng based on his education, training, experience and the multiple awards and accolades he received from his peers. Scheduling an appointment was hassle-free. His staff was courteous, attentive and possessed excellent communication skills. I was put immediately at ease when meeting Dr. Peng due to his pleasant manner and his extensive knowledge. I found him to be a leading edge physician with expertise in all the latest urological procedures. Dr. Peng performed a flawless surgery on me. After the surgery, he and his staff followed up by phone multiple times. Getting in touch with him was never a problem. I highly recommend Dr. Peng without any reservation.

Dr. Peng has been treating my father for about a year now and he is amazing. My dad's previous urologist kept pushing surgery which was of no help whatsoever. Dr. Peng was recommended by my friend who is a doctor and I am so glad I listened. Dr. Peng took detailed history, told us he wanted to try and treat the problem with medication first, and in the end, came up with a creative, non-invasive treatment that is working beautifully, made my dad comfortable and pain free - all without surgery.

Dr.Peng is one of a kind and the staff is very friendly. I went in recently for a circumcision procedure and was very nervous but Dr.Peng explained everything in full detail and made me feel at ease. Had a wonderful conversation during the procedure and before i knew it we were done. I am so glad to have found Dr.Peng he will be my urologist from now.

I have been a patient of Dr. Peng for years. He recently performed a cystourethroscopy of my bladder. He explained the procedure before performing it in office. I felt just some pressure and it was over in a few minutes. All came out well. I would highly recommend Dr. Peng as he is an outstanding doctor.

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.
