Ratings for Dr. Benjamin T. Pecht
Dr. Pecht is very professional and always a wealth of information. He is understanding of the needs of kids at different stages in childhood and develops a great rapport with each of my children. I love that he explains to both teenagers and parents why it's important to talk to the teen alone and will do it yearly. He even will always ask my teenager if he wants to talk to him alone, even if we are there for only a brief visit about a sprained finger. My littlest daughter feels totally comfortable with him, too. I love the staff, too. They are so easy to talk to and get in and see. They will always get you in same day for an urgent issue. I am bummed that physicals require a week wait sometimes, but it's just because they are all such good doctors. I like Dr. Nichols and Dr. Blank, too, when I've seen them for colds and sinus infections.
Dr. Pecht was a really wonderful experience for our family. I have a daughter, 7, and a son, 16. We are practicing Christian Scientists and needed physical exams. Dr. Pecht was extremely sensitive and respectful of our differing choices. My daughter was comfortable and calm with him, and he was informative and kind. The adolescent care is very targeted to teenagers, and is excellent. My son felt good seeing Dr. Pecht and really appreciated the private consultation time with him. I highly recommend Dr. Pecht to families with all ages of children, and am especially impressed with their Adolescent program.
Dr. Pehct is unprofessional, and needs to go back to medical school. He diagnosed my child with a severe ear infection with a bulging eardrum and put her on amoxicillin which he should know is not a strong enough antibiotic to cure a raging ear infection. It only works 50% of the time. He also should have looked in my child's chart to realize she was born with complete hearing loss in the ear without the infection and should have been way more concerned about her infection that ended up rupturing her eardrum!! All he said after he finall y got back to me was "I call in some drops and see her back in 2 weeks." He is horrible!! I would never trust him with my child. He does inappropriate things on exams also!
Dr. Pecht is nothing short of stellar! He has a great personality, he's wonderful with the kids & he's right on the mark with his diagnosis. He's very approachable & compassionate. He has been treating my 4 children for 5 years now & he is my absolute favorite! He's great with my twins & has a real good rep with parents of twins because he has a set of his own. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pecht to any parent.
We really like Dr. Pecht and the office staff is definitely decent. He is a nice guy and definitely not a scare-monger. Seems bright enough. The only thing that is irritating is that you can hear him chatting and joking with the nurses out in the hall while your little one is climbing the walls in the exam room just waiting to be seen.
