What People Say About Dr. Richard Benjamin, DPM
Reply
Very attentive and understood the problems/ issues that were addressed, I failed to ask and review the x-rays taken. He had an immediate solution for future surgery to help the problem. Made it very clear it wouldn't improve the foot to its original state..
