When I went to Dr. Bene for the first & only time - I waited 3 hours before I saw the doctor (sitting in the exam room w/out anyone explaining how much longer she would be or why there was such a delay). I truly should have walked out. When I did finally see her-she was rude, condescending, & instead of speaking to me & explaining her findings, she dictated everything in codes & medical terms to her assistant while I sat there. Absolutely worst "bed side manner" I've ever experienced.
in York, PA |
She is outstanding. I won't let any other doctor near my eyes. She's the best.
in Camp Hill, PA |
She was knowledgeable and took plenty of time to answer my questions and make sure I understood my eye problem and my options. It's hard to find good doctors like her today. And, her staff were very nice. I'd recommend her without reservation.
