My mother has suffered from trigeminal neuralgia for over a decade. Shes been diagnosed by multiple doctors/neurologists and was also placed on disability years ago. She cant eat/drink anything too cold, cant be around wind (not even a ceiling fan), cant be around bright lights or loud sounds, cant be touched on the face without feeling excruciating pain, & can hardly produce a smile. This doctor did nothing for her & blamed it on "headaches", such a pompous man. We'd rather drive to Charleston

Dr. Benz was very professional he addressed all of my concerns and conducted the tests he felt was beneficial to determine what was wrong with me. His staff at the Murrells Inlet Office were Excellent. His staff at the Myrtle Beach Office have bad attitudes, they were disrespectful and truly made me feel worse emotionally than I did physically.

Dr. Benz was very thorough in his examination and conversation.
