Dr. Benson just removed my appendix yesterday 8/24/16. By far the best experience I have had surgicially. Dr Benson & staff have excellent bedside manner and wonderful sense of humor. Professionalism and experience are too small of a descriptive word for such a phenomenal physician. Thank you to all. Respectfully, Clarisa F.
