I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Dr. Benjamin Berenfeld and to Montefiore Hospital for the extraordinary care and expertise provided to me. I suffered a multiple and complex fracture to my elbow due to a fall, while on vacation overseas. I was informed the injury I sustained required surgery. Since I was unable to return to the United States for five days, this resulted in an extremely limited window for timely surgery. Dr. Berenfeld’s office facilitated an immediate appointment upon return and surgery was scheduled and performed very shortly thereafter. The hospital staff was not only very experienced and professional, they went above and beyond to address my personal needs and concerns. Everyone was focused on the patient’s needs while ensuring optimal care. Dr. Berenfeld’s surgical skill and ability to address his patients’ needs was exceptional. Despite the extensive surgery and the numerous pins and plates required to piece together my elbow, I was able to return to work three days later. There were no complications and I was able to commence occupational therapy after three weeks. My occupational therapist, located in my office near midtown Manhattan, and recommended by Columbia Presbyterian, was surprised with the range of motion I had so soon after surgery. She remarked on the quality of the surgeon’s work. My therapist was interested in which doctor had performed the surgery, as she said she was familiar with all the top surgeons in new york. Although she did not personally know of Dr. Berenfeld, she did say that in her thirty years of experience she had never had a patient recover in 8 weeks, and with full range of motion. Thank you, Dr. Berenfeld for you skill, expertise and personal attention and to Montefiore Hospital for the extraordinary care you provided.
I have been a patient of Dr Berenfeld for the past 6 mo. I am 70 years old and the healing process took a lot longer than usual. That said I want to say that Dr Berenfeld is the best physician i have encountered in my 70 years.... "the best physician" incorporates everything: the knowledge; bedside manner: willingness to talk and explain to the patient what is taking place and what to expect; follow ups; and the availability if questions arise.... simply the the best physician and i would recommend Dr Berenfeld to anyone who is unfortunate to have a bone fracture.
Dr berenfeld is one of the very few highly skilled doctors.. I broke my elbow, went to 3 emergency rooms.. It was a waste of time. I went to him. I was concerned, I love how confident he is. He scheduled me for surgery next day which made me comfortable.. He operated on my elbow very successfully preserving my bone, recovery was quick, and I was able to gain full range of motion. I recommend doctor berenfeld.. He's simply the best
