Great and friendly dermatologist
Dr. Bendetson was really nice and friendly. He was straight to the point, which I appreciated, but also took the time to make sure I understood my options and why he was recommending a certain course of action.
Dr. Bendetson is a very kind person and would definitely recommend! Just be sure to come in with a list of prepared questions and concerned areas (as he is not very probing at all) and he will address them all.
Dr. Bendetson was very friendly and efficient. Highly recommend!
He was extremely nice and very efficient! Best dermatologist appointment I have been to!
Dr. Bendetson was very friendly from the beginning, and it was clear that he wanted to get to know me as a person before getting right into the consultation. During the consultation itself, he listened closely and looked at photos I had taken of a suspicious-looking mole. Both the receptionist and Dr. Bendetson were understanding of my insurance situation.
The office feels a little sketchy. I was there for a routine check so I wasn't majorly concerned, but he barely looked me over- I felt like it was a waste of my time to go. He probably spent 30 seconds actually looking at my skin.
Dr. Bendetson was punctual, professional and very friendly. He performed a comprehensive skin screening exam and biopsied a freckle/mole. I would highly recommend Dr. Bendetson.
This review is about a visit I had last year with this Dr., not what is showing on ZocDoc (this July). I went to this Dr. once and will never go back.... EVER. He is a nice guy... But, the reason I will never go back isn't the long wait or the excessive bills that I received after (which were not covered by insurance and this Dr never told me about them ahead of time), but because of pure sanitary reasons. After a long wait the Dr. showed up in the room with several blood spots on his blouse, did not wear gloves (until I told him to), and used ancient equipment to remove two small moles on my hand. Since that small procedure, one of the moles was back within two months and the other left a scar like those caused by burns because he literally burned the wound with a hot electric rod, and I received over $$$ of charges that were not approved by my BCBS PPO! Never again! PS. After several phone calls and telling the story several times and threatening to call the board, I was able to have them remove those charges.
I am typically very anxious when it comes to attending doctor's appointments, and this time I was especially because I had never seen a dermatologist before. The receptionist was super nice and helpful, and the doctor was even better. He was really personable and caring. I loved the conversation we had, and he kept telling me to have a great day. Can't want to go back for a follow up!
Incredibly fast and well-run office, was able to pick up my medication the next day. Dr. Benedetson was very nice, and highly knowledgable.
Wonderful visit! Great staff and wonderful Doctor.
He's a caring, friendly, nice, professional doctor .
Great doctor! If you need someone who is listening to what you are saying and knowing how to help then you need to go and see Dr. Bendetson.
Dr. Bendetson is always very friendly, puts his patience at ease. Not only do I think he is a wonderful dermatologist, he is also very enjoyable to speak to. I actually enjoy visiting him for an appointment!
He was very friendly!
Really nice Doctor! I felt like I was at a doctors office in a small town. He made me feel comfortable and really knew what he was doing. Highly, highly recommended!
Doctor peter is very nice and patient. He made me relax and tried his best to help me save money because I paid the bill by myself. I really appreciated his help!
Dr. Bendetson is a genuine good person, he makes an effort to help his patients in as many ways as he can.
Wonderful doctor -- truly cares about his patients.
The doctor is so nice and smart and he works at his own clinic
Its was good and he is very good answering all my question and he was asking me not to worry Thank you all
Dr. Bendetson was extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. It was a quick appointment and he clearly has had a lot of experience in his field. Would recommend
The doctor was very nice and friendly in the waiting area and on the walk to the exam room, but they actual amount of time he spent examining me was VERY short. He only spent about 2 minutes total doing the mole check and responding to my one concern about a rash. I would have liked him to spend more time with me, as it would have made me feel more confident that everything was "OK" as he said.
Understood my situation and needs immediately; was visiting family in Boston and after a couple unproductive appts with other doctors in NYC, Dr. Bendetson was extremely thoughtful and thorough in helping me directly address and get to the bottom of a dermatological/health issue that has been plaguing me for a couple months. Highly recommended, and will come back to Boston if I have additional dermatological concerns!
Dr. Bendetson is extremely personable and makes you feel very comfortable. Came in for a minor rash and was seen first thing in the morning at 8:30. Had a great conversation about colleges and big 10 football.
Very kind man. The waiting area sketched me out at first, but overall a really positive experience!
Didn't look at any of my skin, only ran his hand down my body -- Was too preoccupied with talking about my personal dating life. Felt a bumpy freckle, decided to remove it. Didn't explain what was happening. The scalpel hurt. He told me it didn't hurt. Left the office confused. Never heard back from the office. When I called, receptionist dug around in files for a few minutes and said it was fine. Will not be going here, nor recommending this doctor to anyone I like.
While Dr. Bendetson was very kind, the wait was over an hour and what he prescribed me did not help the skin problem I was having.
GO SEE THIS DOCTOR. Great visit.
Dr Bensetson was so incredibly nice and helpful! He really took the time to get to know me. I'm moving away, but if I were staying in the Boston area I would definitely keep going to him.
Nice guy, knows his stuff.
I really like Dr Bendetson. He's very friendly and personable. Not totally focused on my issue or a lengthy description of his treatment plan, but I didn't mind it. Also a bit of a wait, as others have said, but I didn't feel rushed by the doctor or his very kind receptionist.
Dr Bendetson is a great doctor. I went to see him as I was very worried about a rash I had on my skin. He performed a test to determine what it was and called me right the day after my visit (even though he asked me to follow up a few days later) with an update on the situation, as I was very worried. I can only recommend him as he was very professional and made me feel comfortable during the visit. I will definitely go back. His assistant was also very nice and answered all my questions prior to my appointment.
Excellent bedside manner and prompt treatment! Highly recommend!
Very warm and knowledgable.
He's a very sweet man who helped me promptly and thoroughly!
Possibly one of the sweetest and most competent people I have ever met!
Very knowledgeable doctor. If I ever need a dermatologist again. I will come back to this office
As a new patient with specific skin care questions and Melanoma concerns, I was happily suprised with Dr. Bendetson's thoroughness. He is both knowledgable and kind, I certainly didn't feel rushed, very warm staff and looking forward to my follow-up appointment in a few weeks.
As a new patient with specific dermatology questions and skin cancer concerns, I was happily surprised with Dr. Bendetson's kindness and thoroughness. I'm certainly looking forward to my follow-up appointment with this office! Very warm staff!
Great, quick service. Very nice guy.
Very friendly and extremely helpful! Would recommend to anyone!
Very personable and put me at ease with my concerns.
I was very impressed by him. He obviously loves what he does and already appears to be the best dermatologist I have ever seen.
Was great and efficient.
Very professional and overall pleasant experience. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Bendetson to friends, family and coworkers in the Boston area.
While Dr. Bendetson was very nice, he spent 90% of the appointment chatting and about 5 minutes actually talking about my issue. I didn't feel like he listened to me or looked for ways to address my concerns - he just prescribed me something very quickly and then sent me on my way. I ended up finding a different doctor who tailors treatment to my concerns and looks for innovative ways to address my issues.
Great visit. Dr. Bendetson is so nice, a great conversationalist, professional and easy going. Highly recommend.
One of the best and friendliest doctors I've worked with. Period.
Very friendly, professional and efficient! Will definitely be going back!
Very polite, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Extremely friendly and reassuring. Great experience overall.
The actual visit was great! I highly recommend him. He was thorough and asked about my specific concerns. My one issue with the visit was his admin staff. After he ran some tests he asked me to call in to get the results- his admin was extremely rude. It put a sour end to the experience.
It was great experience
He was very friendly and a good doctor.
Very nice guy. He and his secretary will make you feel confortable and at home right away. I came to him with multiple issues and he addresed them all. I would definantly recomend him to anyone
He's a pro, and I love that he's available for REAL dermatology procedures. My former dermatologist decided to drop everything but cosmetic procedures, so Dr. B. rates very high in my book!
Top notch doctor, great office, friendly staff. 10 out of 10.
Dr. Bendetson is a world-class physician. After seeing several other doctors about my medical concern, Dr. Bendetson is the first professional who took the time to understand my situation. I couldn't have found a better dermatologist. Dr. B is highly recommended.
Very warm. Attentive. Welcoming.
I left in a really good mood because he was so warm and friendly. He wants to help you and make you feel taken care of.
Very friendly man. I came to him with three issues and he addressed all of them. He made sure I made a follow up appt. The front desk female was also very nice and helpful considering I had some insurance questions.
Very pleasant, kind, personable, funny, and dealt with my issue effectively.
The visit at Dr Bendetson was great - Only minimal wait compared to the appointment time slot. Dr Bendetson was friendly and helpful - he took care of my medical issue and asked me to call for a follow on or if I have any issues or questions. I would go back to the clinic for any other issue with no hesitation.
Dr. Bendetson would answer my questions for me...I felt like I wasn't being heard. He prescribed him medication and I explained to him that I had allergic reactions before with that type of medication. I told him multiple times and then finally, he suggested in another type but that "I wouldn't see any results." I'd rather not see any results than have severe allergic reactions. Also, the wait is so long, I've waited up to an hour beforehand. I've also scheduled appointments online and then get an email saying that the doctor had to cancel.
I went on a weekday morning, and the office was packed, so the wait was slightly over an hour. The receptionist was extremely kind, however, and there were magazines to read. Dr. Bendetson was also friendly, but his doctoring style didn't work for me. He didn't seem interested in the root cause of my problem, just prescribed medication and sent me on my merry way. I generally like more detailed information: why I'm getting a certain medicine, what it will do, etc., and maybe because there were so many people waiting, Dr. Bendetson didn't seem to want to discuss these questions.
thorough. always makes me very comfortable
It was lovely, he was very friendly and I would definitely go back to him.
Was very kind and efficient
Very pleasant visit - no wait time. Spoke more about politics than my treatment, but I probably should have asked more questions. Having a follow-up in a month.
Very positive. Wished I hadn't waited so long to see a doctor.
Great visit. Very friendly and helpful. Was able to see me before normal office hours, and was available the same week that I scheduled. Will definitely continue to see Dr. Bendetson!
Great experience. Incredible bedside manner. I didnt want to leave!
He is very professional, kind and humorous.
very nice man
He was incredibly kind and professional and listened to all of your concerns. Will definitely be going back.
The recommended procedure was explained at no time during the visit-- what he was doing, what I could expect afterwards, what he was "ruling out." Very talkative, unresponsive to questions.
He was extremely friendly, funny, and made me comfortable right away! I have found my dermotologist for life!
Great bedside manner
My Favorite Doctor!
Dr. Bendetson has a very easy bedside manner and put my completely at ease during my appointment; I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a dermatologist!
I had sent my son here and Dr B cleared up his bad case of acne. I went with my daughter who is 14. She has some minor breakouts. He was great with her. Very peronsable and kind. He might not be right for everyone but he was a good fit for us. He has a great sense of humor too.
Congenial and verbose, pleasantly so.
I think Dr. Bendetson is the most helpful and enjoyable doctor I've ever had. Wonderful !
Really enjoyed my first appointment with Dr. Bendetson. Very personable and knowledgeable!
So far so good.

My first visit to Dr. Bendetson. Very impressed with his care, intelligence and personality. He responded quickly to my concerns.
Very nice man
Dr. Bendetson was a delight. So nice and very helpful.
Genuine and professional.
Very knowledgeable. Quick service, I was in and out in 30 minutes. Easy parking right outside, too.
My appointment went well. The final verdict will be from a biopsy and a successful healing from a mole removal.
Efficient and friendly.
Dr. Bendetson was kind, courteous, and extremely professional in my consultation. Throughout the visit, he made an effort to get to know me and made me feel at ease. Further, Dr. Bendetson was extremely thorough in his follow up. He called me several times to ensure I had my medication and even mailed over results of some tests he had run on me.
While my initial impression was questionable, he quickly earned my trust and proved to be pretty sharp and friendly. I definitely would recommend.
He is a very excellent doctor and knows his medicine very well.
Very friendly, professional and to the point
Dr Bendetson was extremely knowledgeable when we discussed my issues with acne and acne scarring. He did a fantastic job of explaining different treatment routes and above all, was willing to listen to my past experiences with treatment options and what decisions I was willing to make in choosing the right method.
Dr. Bendetson took such incredible care of me. He's patient and knows his field. Highly recommend.
Dr. Bendetson was an amazing doctor! He was warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. I cannot remember ever having a more positive experience with a doctor. I have already recommended him to a friend.
