Dr. Benson- was awesome! He had great rapport with my son, explained everything, answered all question, and gave it to us straight. Conservative care wasn't enough and he ended up doing surgery on our son. He has had no problems since. I think he is a very experienced, and kind Doctor. I wish others were more like him!

Dr. Benson removed my tonsils and adenoids last week and he was great. He is professional but also funny. Worked me in fast and let me drop by his office to refill lidocaine.

I credit Dr. Benson for recently saving my husband's life. He recognized that David's airway was being compromised by an unusual and deep tissue abscess in his throat (confirmed by scans). An emergency tracheotomy was preformed and surgery to drain the cyst. We spent 15 days in ICU. Thank you Dr. Benson
