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 hisstaff 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.

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 backand 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 officestaff 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.

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 NicaraguaI, 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!!

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.

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.

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 ZocDocwithout knowing anything about him, but like all of my recs from ZocDoc, he was great.
