What People Say About Dr. Eric Benson, MD

I love a doctor that takes the time to listen to your concerns and also takes the time to explain expectations, procedures, etc. Dr Benson does that. I have been seeing him quarterly for knee injections & know that I will eventually need knee replacements. I would not consider any other doctor to perform the surgery other than Dr. Benson

I have been seeing Dr Benson since 2008. I had a TKR and now getting injections on the other knee. He explains everything and is tops at what he does. You have to follow his instructions and do the therapy he recommends if you want a full and complete recovery. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Dr. Benson has been taking care of my knees for about fifteen years culminating in replacement of each knee during 2017 (surgeries about ten weeks apart). The progressive care that I received was measured, well reasoned, appropriate to me, correct, and successful!! I was properly informed and prepared for the replacement surgeries and subsequent physical therapy. Skied forty days this season! Thankful to Dr. Benson and his outstanding supportive staff!!

He spoke with confidence and to the point. I was happy with the result of my surgery. I'm about to have another surgery and didn't even consider anyone else to do it. He was recommended to me as "the best" by a PT and I agree.

I chose Dr. Benson for my hip replacement surgery after evaluations by 2 other surgeons and could not be happier with my decision to move forward with him. He was professional, caring, and - most importantly - did a terrific job with my surgery, ensuring a rapid and incident free recovery. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a new hip.
