Patient Comments (7)
in Rockland, ME |
Dr. Benton took time to listen to my concerns. I felt he understood my needs after the conversation. He was professional, promptly called back when I called with a question, and he took time in the middle of my appointment to consult with a colleague over who would be the best surgeon to remove my speific type of cancer. I would highly recommend him.
in Oxford ME |
He was extremely helpful in presenting answers to any question that I wanted answered. Did not overwhelm me with medical speak. He allowed for me to take an active role in decision making. I'm now going into my sixth year post diagnosis of stage 4 prostate cancer and doing well.
in South Paris Me |
Diagnoised my cancer, has been awesome treating me & referred me to awesome Dr at Dartmouth for my stwmcell transplant.
in Damariscotta, ME |
Dr. Benton took wonderful care of my mother. He did not talk down to either of us and made certain all our concerns and questions were answered. Dr Benton always made Mom feel like she was very much included in her updates and ongoing decision making. I believe Dr. Benton gave us the information we needed to make informed decisions. We were never rushed through our appointments. The entire staff was sensitive to this difficult and sad time in our lives.
Brunswick, ME |
Unprofessional, rushed, and not forthcoming or positive with information. Did not take time to offer to answer questions. Made him overall untrustworthy.
New York, NY |
Knowledgeable, caring, accessible. Makes you feel like you're his only patient.
New York, NY |
I would and have recommended Dr Benton because I feel he is a very knowledgeable and carrying individual.
