Totally unprofessional and uncaring. Spent less than 5 minutes with me (having a serious medical issue). Did not bother to listen, ask questions or offer guidance. Final insult: the first available follow-up appointment is in three months time!

Would not go to him if you have Prostate cancer. He diagnosed my husband. But only wanted to do surgery so he could do it. Luckily we went to Oncologist and got second opinion. Got seed radiation and things went great and he was able to keep his manhood. Dr Benge does not look out for the patient. Just wants to do what he can do not considering the patients needs and quality of life.
