Dr. Eric Benson, MD
I am board certified in Internal Medicine and attended medical school at Loyola University of Chicago in Maywood, Illinois and his residency at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. I have been practicing medicine for almost 25 years, living, playing and working in beautiful North Idaho ever since November of 2000, when I decided to make it my home. When I'm not busy taking care of all of my wonderful patients I enjoy spending my free time backpacking, hiking, bicycling and cooking.

Dr. Benson as himself is the best, he has helped me soo much in the recent past i have nothing but good things to say about him. As for his staff though, they are short tempered, arrogent, lazy, and have no compassion or empathy for the patients. They feel attacked when asked questions and respond defensively, leaving the patient feeling unwanted and uncared for. They have no urgency when tasked with prescription refils, and do not prioritize accordingly.

Dr. Benson is wonderful. His recent staff changes however make his office difficult to reach. Often times no answer for hours on end. If you leave a message, you might get a response in what they call the industry standard 24-48 hours. The previous staff members were much friendlier and made you feel like family. Not anymore.

Dr. Benson is by far the best doctor ive ever met. He takes the time to listen to you and look into what could be wrong. I would still be suffering everyday with no idea why. Because im so young every doctor i went to, not one got the source of my medical problems. So i would prefer dr. Benson to everyone and guarantee satisfaction.
