Dr. Benge seemed okay, but after only a few visits I had to stop seeing him because for several services Presbyterian double-billed me, billed the wrong insurance, and billed my insurance incorrectly. After months of trying to resolve Presbyterian's billing errors with their rude, incompetent, and ignorant customer service reps I gave up, paid them amounts I did not owe just to be done with them, and went to another doctor.
