What People Say About Dr. Benson Pulikkottil, MD

My son was in a bad motorcycle accident in May and was taken to Swedish Hospital. Dr Pulikkottil was there to repair an open wound on his foot where he lost most of the inside of his foot. He was so amazing to deal with. We spent a couple months in the hospital and he was in everyday to see him. This man definitely knows his job and I would highly recommend him and his practice, you can not find a better surgeon . It was a very long process, but he was able to beat the odds and save his foot.

Dr. Benson Pulikkottil is an excellent surgeon! His bedside manner is amazing and he is super compassionate. I wouldn’t have recovered so well if I wasn’t under his care. Thank you Dr. Benson and his staff!

Three months ago I had a terrible injury to my hand that required surgery. I saw Dr. Benson and he took care of me like I was part of his family. I just got back to playing golf and I couldn't be happier! All thanks to Dr. Benson !

Burnt my hand. He saw me once and told me I needed a skin graft. TWO skin grafts later he never followed up with me personally. I saw him in the hallway and he didn’t even recognize me even after I called after him. His nurse practitioners are worthless and released me with a bad wound and said I was done with follow-up care when I still had a badly healing graft and bleeding from the surgical site. I followed up with an actual trusted doctor that was ran out by their practice due to Medicaid

I wrote a review earlier that was not accurate. The doctor did call me and discuss all of my concerns and it was established that there was miscommunication. We were able to clear the air and correct the issue. This has completely restored my faith in him and the plan moving forward.

Dr. Pulikkottil is an incredible surgeon. My mother had some life threatening health issues which required an impressively long and creative surgerical solution to those issues. There isn't enough space here to describe our trust and appreciation for his expertise. This is someone who truly cares about his patients, and he was a beacon of light during a time of which the memories still make me cry.

I cannot express strongly enough how much trust and respect I have for this amazing Doctor. I had a flap surgery and reconstructive surgery to my lower right leg and foot. I have never met a doctor with so much compassion that takes the time to listen to your questions and concerns. He has compiled an amazing team and staff that are second to none! His skills, knowledge, and commitment to his craft are second to none! I have so much gratitude for and trust in this gentleman. Second to none!

The reason I went to see him was a little out of the norm to what he's used to & I asked many questions & got 2nd opinions from others He wanted to do an expensive preop test & I went to the leading specialist in field & aske if it was needed & it absolutely was not. I told him and apparently it bruised his fragile ego Any dr that doesn't think you should get a 2nd opinion you should run from. Apparently I'm considered non compliant since I wasn't a sheep of a patient &labeled noncompliant!

Dr. Pulikkottil is highly skilled and also very attentive and responsive to my personal needs to understand my injury and the indicated remedy. I also wanted to learn about the state of science and technology giving rise to treatment alternatives, surgical and non-surgical. Dr. Pulikkottil and the supporting medical staff are at the top of their game on this matter.
