What People Say About Dr. Benjamin Peng, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

Dr. Peng makes the difficult, troubling experience of a diagnosis easy to understand and with his caring manner he takes the anxiety away. His sunny disposition gives you the courage to keep going. He is thorough, experienced, and one of the best doctors I have ever seen.

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.

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 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

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.
