Patient Comments (7)
in Huntington , NY |
Dr BenTar is the smartest doctor who has ever treated me. He always performs the most thorough exams and has a level of knowledge and competence that is unique. I always feel he has done the best job possible!
in North Bellmore |
Very easy to get an appointment. Dr Benatar saw me in a timely manner. Understood my problem immediately and gave me a diagnosis. Very knowledgeable and understanding. I would recommend him highly

One word- Trust
Massapequa, NY |
Impossible to schedule appointment as no one ever answers the phone. I have been a patient of Dr. Benatar's in the past when he was in a practice in Bellmore. If you do get lucky and reach their automated system and make a selection, the phone rings off the hook. Terrible. Makes me wonder if the practice is closed.
Levittown |
Unfortunately I can only grade based on the ease of scheduling appointments because the office has not once answered the phone when I've called, nor do they even have an answering machine, so I haven't been able to schedule one. I'll be taking my business elsewhere. (Just to be clear, this review is for the orthopedist, not the physical therapy office downstairs.)
in Westbury, NY |
Dr. Benatar has been my Orthopedist for more than 20 years and as far as I'm concerned he's the best at what he does.
