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 very scary tongue cancer. Because of Dr. Benson's skills & expertise I'm am now cancer free with no adverse effect to my speech or quality of life. He spent a great deal of time with me explaining my options. He & his staff were very compassionate & professional through the whole process. I would highly recommend him to my friends & family.

He is an excellent surgeon and physician. I have a great deal of faith in Dr Benson. My neurologist recommended him and I am very grateful. I am optimistic that my allergies will improve in the months to come. You will not be disappointed with his care.

My husband and I have both seen Dr. Benson and have been very happy with the doctor and the staff. My husband was very ill and Dr. Benson was very compassionate and professional. We would highly recommend him and his staff in a minute. We are very grateful to him.
in Englewood, NJ |
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..
in River Edge, NJ |
Dr. Benson is one of the best doctors in his field.Thank you Dr. Benson you're the best!
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.
