Ratings for Dr. Bennett C. Rothenberg
I had to have a very small procedure (a small skin cancer) done, and he told me it must be done in the Short Hills Surgery Center. This procedure cost $25,000 and was performed very poorly. The surgi-center drove up the cost astronomically and when I went back a week later to have the sutures removed, he did not get all of them, and my daughter who is a nurse removed the remaining 3 that evening. The scar is a terrible reminder of a very bad experience. My advice, find someone else and avoid what I had to go through.
When I went for my consultation I was very happy with Dr. Rothenberg and his staff. They made me feel at ease for my upcoming procedure and took care of everything for me. HOWEVER on the day of my surgery, I was told Dr. Rothenberg was going to be running late, how late/why/where was he coming from no one could tell me, but fine, I'm a doctor as well and pretty understanding and can relate, especially if something happened in an operation before mine. 2 HOURS LATER....no one could get a hold of Dr. Rothenberg from the surgical center or his office staff. The nurses and anesthesiologists all said this happens on a regular basis. One nurse even said "did someone check the parking lot?" which of course made me very wary. After the 2 and a half hours of waiting, using 2 bags of IV fluid, and absolutely no one hearing from Dr. Rothenberg I decided to walk out. Of course as soon as I get my items and have the IV and heart monitors taken off Dr. Rothenberg walks in reeking of cigarettes. His "apology" was very insincere and almost scripted (I guess like the surgical center staff said this happens often so he's had time to perfect his craft). Overall my experience was absolutely awful and I HIGHLY recommend that if you care about who is doing your surgery or what time they'll show up, because clearly your time is insignificant to his, then I would not use Dr. Rothenberg for any surgical procedure.
I reached out to Dr.Rottenberg based on a referall from a trusted friend. I am extremely happy with my decision. The office was very clean and his bedside manner was warm and open. On the day of my surgery dr.rottenberg calmed my fears and I have the nose I've always dreamt of!!
Two failed rhinoplasties and deviated septum done by Dr.Benett Rothenberg. I was totally UNHAPPY and DISAPPOINTED with my results and still unable to breath after my second surgery done by him. My nose was twice the width of my original nose, the tip was leaning to the side and I had a bump on the bridge of my nose. I consulted two doctors after having my nose done TWICE by Rothenberg, both agreed it needed revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty. Unfortunately, I had to have a THIRD surgery done by a FACIAL plastic surgeon who was able to correct all the deformities from my two previous surgeries. Please learn from my mistake and consult a plastic surgeon who specializes in the field of rhinoplasty so you don’t have to put out the added cost of another surgery.
Do not use him for a breast reduction. I had a horrible experience. I got a neuroma and he did another surgery and it made it worse. What about going the more conservative route like cortisone injection and local anesthetic? I suffered needlessly. Go elsewhere. It was the biggest mistake I ever made.
