What People Say About Dr. Andrew Benn, MD

Horrible person and doctor. My parents went in together and this doctor made my Mom cry. He was disrespectful and dismissive. My parents thought my Dad had a stroke. Dr. Benn said my Dad probably had a seizer and how would my Mom know the difference, using the reference would she know the difference between and apple and pear at the grocery store. What? Even after suggesting a seizure he just passed them off to another doctor. He made my 75 yr old Mother cry . What a horrible experience and horrible bedside manner.

Awful. He saw my father-in-law and was condescending, unfriendly, unhelpful and recommended that this 77 year old man go back and see a neurologist. I wish he could experience the same bedside manner as he displays.

He is caring, thorough, professional, very competent. He will answer any question and address any concern you have promptly and with a full explanation. He will help you plan an effective course of action going forward. He is one of the best doctors I have had the privilege of using for my healthcare. He will help you not only recover and maintain, but also thrive.
