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 reasonI 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.

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 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 Ihad 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.

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 wasreally 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!

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.

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 themole 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 thebottom 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!

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 Ididn'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 myvisit (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.

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 justprescribed 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.

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.
