What People Say About Dr. Alexander Benson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I found Dr. Benson to be extremely condescending, rude and sarcastic. He smarted off about my one of my other doctors, and it was really inappropriate. When I questioned his diagnosis because my other physicians disagreed with him, he became exasperated and became very sarcastic. I have since seen another doctor, that properly diagnosed me. I would not recommend this physician. His lack of professionalism is disturbing.

I found Dr. Benson to be affable, courteous, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He listened patiently to my complicated and extended medical history, asked great questions, and narrowed in on the correct diagnosis that had been missed by many other doctors who weren't willing to spend the time to treat with me as an individual. He sincerely cared. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Benson, and would not hesitate to give him the highest possible recommendation

While I am sure Dr Benson has the potential to be an excellent doctor, my experience was extremely disappointing. He was condescending and rude, failed to address my needs, existing conditions or current health concerns, and I ended up having to seek care elsewhere to get a correct diagnosis that falls within his area of expertise and should have been addressed.
