Patient Comments (1)
in Castle Rock, CO |
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.
