“Listen to the patient; he/she is telling you the diagnosis.” – William Osler

Dr. Benjamin Arbesfeld has been practicing medicine for over 30 years and is passionate about taking care of his patients, and not just treating their illnesses. In fact, his favorite part of being a doctor is the long-term relationships he develops with his patients, and he is a firm believer in the importance of really listening to them. Over the years he has built a primary care practice in addition to his cardiology practice and enjoys both with the same passion.


Dr. Arbesfeld has been married to his wife for 40 years and they share four children. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and says getting together as a family for holidays is one of his favorite activities. Dr. Arbesfeld also likes to travel, listing Miami Beach and Israel as two of his favorite vacation spots.

I am a physician for 44 years certified in the practice of Internal Medicine. Dr. Arbesfeld has ben my personal Cardiologist for 25 years and I can state without reservation that he is one of the most superior physicians I have ever encounterd. His fund of medical knowledge is superb and his personal behavior beyond reproach. He treats each patient with kindness and civility as does his staff and his office is meticulously clean. He is highly and deservedly respected by the entire medical community. I was the Sr. Medical Director for both Empire Blue Cross-Blue Shield and Emblem Health and was thus greatly involved in evaluating the quality of care of thousands of of physicians. Dr. Arbesfeld would rank at the pinnacle of my list. He is a a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and has published in the scholarly journal Cardiology and is cited by 26 other scholarly journals. I have referred him to my closest family member who concur with my excellent opinion od Dr. Arbesfeld.
