    I have been searching for Dr. Benson, since she left the practice on 38th Ave. The new physician that I was assigned has poor bedside manor, nothing like Dr. Benson, who can make the most humiliating experience, a walk in the park. I'm calling tomorrow for an appointment......Denise B.C.

    I only saw her once for a pap/pelvic exam. I attempted to reschedule a biopsy but she had already closed her Largo office. I made several attempts to get a phone number in order to contact her new office, but I never found anything online except a fax number. I faxed a request for a new appointment, but I never received a return call or message. I then decided to find another ob gyn for my future appts.

    She does not listen , does not care and does not read your chart. I'm a 50 year old woman who needs and was referred for a hysterectomy- with a family history of cancer- I have had a heart attack and have high blood pressure - she wanted to put me on the pill and have me come back in 3 months! Also terrible bedside manner. Second worse doctor I have ever seen and the worst misdiagnosed cervical cancer.

    I have seen Dr Benson for 15 years and love her! She takes time to listen to my concerns and answers my questions without being in a hurry or feeling rushed. She doesn't make me wait in her waiting room which is a ++++++. I recommend Dr Benson.
    in Tampa, FL |
    She was immediately rude, and has no bedside manners. She did not care about my concerns, and she wanted to change the medication I've been on for years (reduce my dose), and give me antidepressants ! I was appalled. This is the first time I have ever met this woman, and she said that she thought They would be good for me. When I told her about my high cholesterol and liver problems, she disregarded my concerns completely. She also filled the wrong prescription.
