If I could leave a zero I would. He is horrid. The most arrogant and caustic person or 'doctor' I've ever encountered in my lifetime. DO NOT subject yourself or child to this man!

Dr. Eric Benjamin of Scottsdale literally saved my adolescent’s life. My boy went from an almost-catatonic, anorexic, severely depressed teen to a healthy, thriving, balance young man ready to face the adult world. Thanks to Dr. B, my son has discovered the importance of staying on - and taking on a regular basis - his meds while balancing that with psychiatric and psychological therapies. He literally was an answer to prayer and I will forever be indebted to him.

I started seeing him when I was 8. After spending less than 10 minutes with me he diagnosed me with 3 different disorders. I was on 6 different medications for over 9 years. All to counteract the other medication he added. The dosages were all for adults. Needles to say they made me feel so ill & drugged out I couldn't participate in school. My weight and physical health suffered as well. When I became an adult I chose to take myself off all the meds. It was like a fog had lifted. I could think clearly and I was able to retain information. I no longer felt depressed or had bouts of anger. Sadly that's not the case for my physical health as it caused permanent physical damage to my body. Despite his prediction that I wouldn't go anywhere in life without meds I am happy and I have a wonderful marriage and have healthy kids. I hope that parents will see this and research other options for their kids than heavy doses of meds. He does not have the best interest of your kids at heart.

Took no interest in my 6 year old’s history before diagnosing an adult psych disorder. Would not return calls or inform us of diagnosis. Prescribed inappropriate medication and discharged him from hospital on dose that led to toxic levels. Was demeaning and condescending during hospital staffing when we asked for rationale for diagnosis and medication choice so we could make informed decision and told us we weren’t doctors and couldn’t understand if he told us. Child got worse. Found new doc

Dr Benjamin experiments with drugs on children. Despite protocols he irreverently tests his drug theory on innocent children.
