Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
