I came here because Dr. Borders is a good Dr. , but they gave me Dr. Benson. Now I am so mad that I'm down to my last days of pregnancy, and still feel like I need a second opinion because she is so short with answers, and likes to rush you out. I have Gestational diabetes, part of my cervix is missing, My baby is extremely large, this is My first pregnancy, and she hasn't scheduled a c section, or inducement. I am so scared, and she hasn't helped me not to worry.

I happened to find Dr. Benson when I first found out I was pregnant and my Piedmont MD was no longer covered by my insurance - so I was really nervous to go to a new doc! Now, Dr. Benson is my favorite MD in the world. So personable and always available. She makes you feel like she has all the time in the world to spend with you during your appointment. She truly goes above and beyond for her patients. I would have a baby every 9 months just to be cared for by Dr. Benson and her wonderful staff.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO SEE THIS DOCTOR. SHE IS VERY RUDE AND HAS NO BEDSIDE MANNERS. SHE DRAGS HER FEET WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING THINGS DONE. SHE IS VERY UNINVITING AND IS VERY SHORT WITH ANSWERS. I SWITCHED TO ANOTHER DOCTOR AND THEY ARE THE BEST. THEY RARELY ANSWER THE PHONE WHEN YOU CALL AND WHEN THEY DO ANSWER CALLS THE RECEPTIONISTS ARE VERY RUDE.

Unfortunately she's not the best when it comes to making you feel like more than a number. She made me feel like I was getting on her nerves if I had to call after hours and she was often short with her answers and spoke in a very condescending tone. I was very adamant about having a vaginal birth at all my appts, but during delivery she was barely there and when did show up she kept threatening c section. I felt like she was just ready to go home. I delivered vaginally with my nurse's support
