As a retired Dr., my faith in Dr. Shenassa and his skills are based on old school values and relations. Dr. Shenassa is a professional and has a good heart that expresses itself in everything he does. I had a chronic and complicated condition that I only trusted Dr. Shenassa to address. He weighed the pros and cons with me and we went into surgery as a team of Dr. and Patient. I recommend Dr. Shenassa.

By the grace of God, a cat scan had found a tumor on my right kidney in late 2003. My sister arranged for me to come to Glendale and see Dr. Shenassa. He did a marvelous job. I presented him with some difficulties due to my obesity and sleep apnea. He handled both of these most effectively. Our own oversight (mine, his, and another physician) was not planning a new course of therapy when I had to stop one medication due to its use of the kidney. It was a learning experience for all 3 of us. 5 years later I remain cancer free. Praise the Lord!

I was starting to loose faith in doctors until i met dr shenassa, he treated my grandma for kidney stones. due to her age there were some complications, so all night almost every hour he would personally come and see her, never seen bedside manners quite like his, i would def recommend him.

Very light-handed surgeon, with tremendous amount of compassion, and with amazing bedside manners. Also, an excellent diagnostician.

Ben Shenassa is a colleague. He and I share many patients together. I took my son for a simple revision procedure and a fantastic job was done. Follow up care was great.

I was referred to his office by my gyno for frequent UTIs and most recent labs showed blood in my urine. I have an annoying HMO plan. I was able to make an app right away. My only negative would be the wait time but they did warn me when i made the appointment so i do appreciate that. Dr. Shenassa was very pleasant, did not rush through the appointment like most dr do now days. based on his exam and my medical history he gave me all my options and even encouraged me to get a second opinion. The front office staff are very nice always smiling. The back office on the either hand a bit disorganized, anyways dr shenassa recommended that i have a kidney ultrasound and a xray called KUB, having a HMO everything needs to be authorized, i though to myself great here goes a couple weeks but to my surprise while checking me out they also submitted the auth and got it authorized, that was very impressive. overall one of the best experiences ive had in a long time at a doctors office

My expierince with prostate cancer was made remarkably easy with this doctor. He took me through the process from diagnoses through surgery with a skill and knowledge that made the whole situation a lot easier to handle. Six and a half years later, I still apretiate what he did for me.

I had to obtain a few opinions before and after seeing Dr Shenassa. I finally decided to have him perform my complex kidney surgery. He was amazing. He had walked me through all the expectations before and after the surgery. Results of my surgery have been great, as I do not need any further treatment. He is tough when it comes to managing the pain after the surgery. I think his approach is actually great. Thank you, Dr Ben.

Dr. Shenassa is very professional (yet approachable), extremely knowledgable, very direct, and principled. Coupled with all the above, he projects caring and a determination to help you. I have never felt so safe, as a patient, as I have felt under his care. He has a habit of saying things, which he wants to impress upon you, three times; in keeping with his way, I say Dr. Shenassa is great, great, great!

Dr. Shenassa is a physician which we all hope to have. He takes his time to listen to you and explain his diagnosis and he makes you feel so comfortable in his office. When your test results come in he calls you at home with the results. He has always been kind, gentle and conscientious. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a great urologist.

Office staff were unprofessional and not very pleasant, good physician but unimpressed with overall office staff!

I would not take my father back to him.
July 09 , 2010
Have very painful urological disease thataffects up 10% of men.Dr Shenassa refused my request for pain medication,said he NEVER gives meds for pain!? Said to see myregular doctor,even though I informed him that I am unemployed,lost job,insurance and family doctor. A very nice man,but not compassionate if you are in pain.First doctor I have ever seen who has refused any pain medication for a legitimate reason. I would hate to be the poor patient if he performed surgery and not give post-op pain meds.
