      Dr. Benglis performed surgery on me to implant a Spinal Cord Stimulator almost 3 years ago. He did a fantastic job! He is not what I expected from a neurosurgeon; simply because most neurologists aren't exactly known for having a fantastic personality! ?? He is extremely friendly, caring and makes you feel very comfortable. When I have to have my battery replaced for my stimulator I'm going right back to him!
