WOW.... after reading the negative responses I turned to my husband & said.."is this our Orthopedic surgeon we find very confident & skilled in his practices"? We will agree on a lesser degree on his bedside manner but if all of you want is a great personality with humor, call your docs office & ask about their personality first & then make or not make an appt. Friends, family & other doctors recommended him highly for his excellent skills & thorough diagnosis. We are extremely satisfied PT's

I recently fell down a flight a stairs. After a week, my ankle was still very swollen and bruised, and I had trouble walking and keeping up with my daily activities. The first thing out of his mouth when he walked into the room was "So, how often do you fall down stairs?" He proceeded to let me know that despite how swollen my ankle was, I obviously was lying about pain. Clearly this man sees it's a liability case and wants nothing to do with it. He spent no more than 3 minutes with me.

I was misdiagnosed by Dr Benthiens PA. I was sent for a guided cortisone shot and physical therapy. depleted my FSA in copays and never got rid of the pain. nothing more than an x ray was done. Come to find out I had torn and literally destroyed tendons and not even the tendon treated. I found a doctor who actually requested am MRI and had emergency surgery last week. Considering a malpractice suit. T

I totally agree with the other reviews. Dr. Benthein is as arrogant as they come. He has ZERO people skills. Where does he get off telling people they aren't in pain. I hope someone sues him and he goes out of business. He never even looked at all the records I sent over. No one should have to put up with this horrible Doctor. His office manager Dawn is just as bad. Marci the PA IS WONDERFUL.

i waited for 1hr in the examining room for him to come in. went outside and asked does he know that I am here? Finally after 1 hour his PA shows up and said that he had emergency surgery and had to leave. Trouble is I heard him tell someone that he had to pick up his daughter at 4:30. At that point I walked out. No, I do not recommend him at all.

Dr. Benthien, please, I am begging you to learn bedside manners. Treat your patients with care and respect. Stop with the arrogant attitude. Belittling your patients will get you no where. Telling them they are exaggerating their pain is wrong and demeaning. Physically grabbing, twisting, and rubbing your patients affected limbs will get you a law suit. Good luck with all that. I have never in my life been treated the way Dr. Benthien treated me. I will be filing a complaint with the state.
