Very through, nice manners and his staff was wonderful.
The office space is very nice and high tech. Dr. Benjamin knows what he's talking about and the staff is very friendly.
Very thorough and caring staff, explained procedures and options well. I'm glad I found Dr. Benjamin to support me in my eye health.
Could not be better, best experience
Amazing. Beautiful office. Great service. Very knowledgeable staff. Doctor Benjamin was smart and professional. Highly recommend.
A sincerely great Dr. who is committed to excellence. Great videos with detailed information about several eye concerns
Large, state of the art facility in WeHo's most exclusive medical tower (he has to be good to afford the rent lol), very friendly, knowledgable staff fluent in English & Russian, comfy waiting room, extremely thorough examinations, & they take most insurances.
Very satisfied with my visit and proffessionalism of all concerned
He is the most caring and profession Dr. I have ever visited. Takes so much time to explain everything in plain language,
Probably the best eye doctor I've ever been to. Definitely recommended!
The best ophthalmologist in Los Angeles. Me and my family have been patients for about 10 years. I highly recommend Dr. Benjamin!
The staff is very friendly and explains the details of Lasik. Dr. Benjamin was also very informative of the process. My only complaint is that I was at the office for 2.5 hours, but was only with the Dr. and/or his staff for about 40 minutes of that whole time. I had to wait about 40 minutes before being seen, and about another 45 minutes for the Dr. to see me.
Very informative and helpful. Good staff and very pleasant.7
Great doctor,very skilled and very friendly!I would definitly go to him again when I need it and I live in Europe!
I had a 3:10 appointment and didn't see Dr. Benjamin until 4:05. Then he came in and said I had to take my contacts out and left again and didn't return for another 15 minutes. The nurse who took me back and checked me in couldn't have told me to remove my contacts in the hour I sat in the exam room?
My eye doctor as a child set the bar so high I never thought I would find that again. I've had a series of good ones, but Dr. Benjamin is the best I've had since my childhood doctor. The whole office staff is outstanding, courteous in all ways. They set the standard for the experience we should get from all medical professional. Not to forget, that he's a genius at IT.
Good experience! I'm very satisfied! Thanks to Arthur and his staff!
I have seen many, many eye doctors due to frequently moving all over SoCal. In this instance, I had just moved to West Hollywood and had yet to need a Eye Doctor. One day before I left for vacation in Nicaragua I, OF COURSE, had a major swollen and irritated eye. On ZocDoc, I found that he was available ASAP and close to me- I honestly wasn't expecting much. To my surprise, I think Dr. Benjamin Arthur is thee best and coolest eye doctor I have ever seen! The staff is UNBELIEVABLE awesome, personable, caring and professional. The office is impeccably clean, modern, and beautiful. The doctor himself is hilarious, extremely smart and wants to get to know you. He took out a recorder and recorded everything we went through and his diagnosis so that he could save that audio and remember EXACTLY what happened that day to minimize mistakes in the future. Parking is easy if you find a meter spot on Sunset - 2 hours, you are good to go. As for me.. I found my new regular eye doctor!!
Highly knowledgeable and very attentive staff. Full pricing disclosure. Very professional.
I really enjoyed the office and the personnel. The equipment is advanced and I felt very comfortable there. The doctor is really nice and staff very kind!
Great service. Nice and friendly staffs.
Nice office, capable and courteous staff, excellent doctor, valet parking inside building.
The wait seemed eternal. I worried about the expensive ticket I might have been getting while waiting FOREVER to be seen. Garage parking is around $20 (they don't validate) and therefore out of the question, so street parking is a must (and very difficult to find). Basically the staff is polite, but there was much chaos in general. Staff members kept coming in the examining room asking questions of other staff members and disrupting MY time (which I waited a long time for), there were about 6 interruptions in all. The doctor is pretty cool and everyone is nice, but I wish they wouldn't book so many people for the same appointment (we all waited together for the same appointment)...why not just call this what it is...a walk-in clinic where you sit and wait your turn. If only I spoke Russian, I would have had a conversation with the other 11 people waiting with me.
Awesome, fast, easy.
he is the best!!!
Dr. Benjamin was great! Very attentive and kind. All state of the art technology in the office. Lovely office staff. Highly recommended.
Dr Benjamin was great, the staff very excellent, the facility was very nice as well. Had a bit of trouble parking in that area, so give yourself some extra time. After my eye exam from his lovely and very professional assistant, I had to wait a bit before the Doctor came in, but other than that it was a very good experience.
Funny, knowledgable, professional, and got a feeling of trustworthyness!
very cordial and direct and to the point I'll be seeing him again.
Was very professional & so was his staff
This is the guy you want. Confident and capable.
My visit was great and it is in a beautiful office.
Dr. Benjamin is great! He is friendly, knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He examined my eyes and laid out all my options before prescribing a treatment that he explained carefully to me and made sure I understood. I found him on ZocDoc without knowing anything about him, but like all of my recs from ZocDoc, he was great.
