West Babylon, NY |
Dr. Benkov is the best Doctor we ever met. My son was seen by others prior to him but was not great help. My son is his patient over 10 years and Dr. Benkov is always there for him.

This doctor only cares about money. He does not care about his patient, only if it's an easy solution. He does not go above and beyond - and for the salary that he makes, he should. A good doctor shows empathy and cares about solving the problem. He is very rude and arrogant. He couldn't figure out what was wrong with my daughter so he basically dropped us and wouldn't take my phone calls if I had a question. I would never recommend him.
My son has a very serious medical condition. Dr. Benkov was the dr who was recommended to put the mic-key in. He is heartless and has no feelings about what a family is going through. He would not check on our tiny baby when our son was 8 months old and ended up back in the hospital sick. He was too busy doing his rounds & his job was done. A few years later, our son's tube got infected. Dr Benkov would NOT fit our son in because it was just a little over a year & said he's a new patients

Dr Benkov should not be practicing medicine. He is a cold hearted man who does not listen to terrified parents and their children's necessary medical needs.

Dr Benkov saved my Daughter. I am and always be grateful to him and his staff for the care they gave my daughter and his availability. Dr Benkov was available to me day and night when my Daughter's flare was high. No other doctor provided me with that kind of service.
