Dr Bengs was recommended to me by a patient who got tkr too. He is friendly, informative, reassurring to the patient tells you good and bad. I have not had the surgery as yet but this was the first meeting. Now, onto the staff- Kathy is very terse, very unaccommodating borderline rude and not a helpful person - maybe overwhelmed but still no excuse for rudeness and inefficiency. If I was to rate Bengs on his staff alone I woul not be getting operated on.

Dr Bengs didn't just tell me I needed surgery. He said when you feel you do call me, and then again you may never need one, it's up to you! I am a very active 70 year old woman, that still runs and plays tennis, but i think my yoga helps me the most! Thank you Dr Bengs for your wonderful bedside manner!

Dr. Bengs may be a good surgeon but he is severly lacking in bed side manners and caring about his patients.

I found Dr. Beings caring and professional. He replaced both my knees and restored my active life style. He was informative and always spent time with me when I had questions.

Not only did I find Dr. Bengs to be careless and arrogant, in my pre-op, he never bothered to introduce himself to me, or TALK to me, which IF HE HAD BOTHERED, perhaps he would have LISTENED TO ME, and NOT OPERATED ON THE WRONG LEVEL IF MY SPINE. He ruined a healthy part of my spine by operating on it when IF HE HAD BOTHERED TO LOOK, he MIGHT have noticed he was in the WRONG PLACE. He operated on a healthy part of my spine, left the part that needed surgery and left me with new pain, and I had to have ANOTHER SURGERY to fix the original problem. My back will NEVER be the same. He was in Boston at the time so you WON'T find the information anywhere.

Dr. Benjamin Bengs is direct, very knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable with the procedure, gives you lots of information beforehand and is extremely patient. His clinic assistant Kathy is courteous and treats you as though you are her only patient. I had both hips replaced by Dr. Bengs and I am on the mend from my second surgery. I had a very good experience with this doctor and would highly recommend him.
