Had an amazing, easy-going experience getting my tonsils removed. The staff was courteous and informative. The surgery was successful, and I was prescribed analgesics appropriately. Dr. Teitelbaum's services are excellent.

Went in for a routine office visit because I needed a prescription refill. When I received my bill my insurance, the Doctor charged me $300 because looking into my nose was considered a 'surgical' procedure. When I disputed the bill, they said there was nothing they would do and I owed the money. I will definitely be looking for another doctor.

Had stapes ear surgery with Dr Ben Teitelbaum as the surgeon. It was totally unsuccessful. He told my wife after the surgery he should have abandoned the surgery as he had great difficulty in even reaching the stapes bone. The surgery took two and one half hours and should have taken half the amount of time. Suffered a hearing loss as a result of the surgery.
