An amazing clinician and a fantastic surgeon! His bedside manner is excellent, and his surgical skills are second to none! My Whipple, while difficult on me personally, was made better by having the top man in the US (my opinion after thorough research) doing the difficult work. My life was changed by his fantastic work. He literally saved my life. I can't recommend any doctor more highly!

Dr Bentrem was brought in to inform me of test results after I already had surgery. He told me based on his opinion that basically nothing was wrong with me even though my tests and surgery proved otherwise. Even though 2 other surgeons verified the problem by seeing it during surgery, Bentrem was not "convinced that's what it is" WILL NOT LISTEN TO REASON OR LOGIC AND WILL NOT EXPLAIN RESULTS THAT DO NOT AGREE WITH HIS OPINION. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

Excellent outcomes with deep expertise. Takes the time to explain your condition and the surgery he is recommending. I had the Whipple surgery which is a very complicated and difficult surgery. Dr. Bentrem and his office staff were outstanding. They explained the procedure and recovery process in detail and were very accessible. Dr. Bentrem has an excellent bed side manner. You trust him and his team. One of the best.
