Dr. Benson is professional and very personable. I saw him for a bad recurring cough and post nasal drip. Although I did have to wait a bit past my appointment time for him, he was kind and caring and listened to what I was telling him during my visit. I felt he spent as much time with me as I needed. Best of all, he helped me. His office staff, especially Nicky, is equally professional and caring. I definitely recommend him.

I had an anomaly, a branchial cleft cyst on my neck. After seeing 5 ENT's Dr. Rietzen, ENT recommend Dr. Benson as a specialist. Dr. Benson removed my severally infected enlarged cyst without any immediate or permanent complications (hearing impairment, drooling, nerve damage, etc.) A week after surgery the stitches were removed. There was minimal notice of the surgery, no scaring without close examination. Amazing! Dr.Benson is Kind, Attentive, Outstanding Surgeon, highly recommend?! The Best

I had a severe chronic cough condition for many years. It was treated for many years with no success. About 1 1/2 years ago I was referred to Dr. Benson. He attempted four different treatments, two different medications and two different types of injections into the throat, with little success. However, he was not about to give up. He prescribed a third medication, and, after taking the first pill the cough was gone and remains under control. I would readily recommend Dr. Benson.

I had never been in front of a doctor who is so unethical and has so little if any respect for a patient. I was there, two hours in the room waiting for him while he was talking at the phone and I was the only one waiting him, to later come and tell me that he couldn't attend me because he is a surgeon, nothing he could do for me. Really??? I have to wait 2 hours for this?? Looking at his face I could only see a liar, who only care about money..

Great surgeon. If you expect anything more than that you will be disappointed. took his office 3 weeks to call me back about test results. After they called with the wrong results. Went for a follow up visit he recommended two over the counter medicines to take. I specifically told Dr. Benson I was on a low sodium diet!! Guess what both medicines are not allowed on a low sodium diet. Now I have a $300.00 bill I have to pay for nothing.
