Dr. Benton is the Best!!
Finding out I have prostate cancer was tough, so being blessed with a doctor who is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate was exactly what I needed. His experience with patients like myself was also a major plus! If I could give him a 6th star...I would!!!

Dr. Benton was recommended to me by my surgeon. I am so glad because Dr. Benton was so gracious and explained everything to me. He answered all of my questions and was very up front with me. I think he is a wonderful, caring doctor and I am so glad to call him my doctor and recommend him because he is the best. His staff is wonderful too and they worked so well in scheduling my times.

Dr. Benton and the staff were all great to care for me in my treatments. I could never ask for any better services. They have been very professional, ensuring, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend if, you're looking for Cancer support. My first time dealing with cancer. Dr. Benson's entire team did everything to make me feel comfortable during my treatment. Since the day we first talked, everything was explained, I rang the bell 11/24/2021.

He is wonderfully supportive and helpful in areas outside his specialty. He helped me so much by suggesting I needed oxygen. He treats the whole person, not just radiation. I cannot recommend him and his staff enough.

We meet Dr. Benton and Jennifer March 2019 and what a BLESSING they are. Doctors in our area was not a knowledgeable with the Prostate as Dr. Benton. We had test after test and still no concrete answer until we meet with Dr. Benton. By the time we found the Clinic the cancer had spread and we were not able to go back for our treatment plan (he passed away). Dr. Benton told us what to tell the doctor back home to get a treatment started. The Doctor here was not able to do what needed to be done so we had to be rereferred. I recall Jennifer speaking to me EVERY time I called. She returned every call, even after business hours when she got home. That speaks VOLUMES. I tell everyone I know about the experience I had with Dr. Benton and Jennifer. My Father was pleased with the knowledge, professionalism, and compassion shown. The Seminars are so informative and answers a lot of your questions/concerns. Everyone who participate is genuine, they really care about you. GREAT TEAM..

Fantastic and wonderful treatment. Dr. Benton is kind and so calming for a nervous person having cancer for the first time. The entire staff is outstanding and so kind and caring. Never grumpy at 8am in the morning, always a smile. I was told to call anytime if I have any question about anything, call because we love to hear our voices. Simple humor, but just that kind of lite, easy going care I would receive. I once asked if I could discuss something. The nurse said let's sit and talk. Just as easy as an older brother or parent would do. Never rushing me that they have other things to do. I always felt like I was the only patient and all care was on me The next Radiation Center will have a huge bar to climb to knock Dr. Benton and Team down to place #2. These folks are fantastic and I highly recommend them.

Dr. Benton and his staff are awesome! He and his staff are professional, knowledgeable, caring, and punctual. I never felt rushed or as if I was just a number. Dr. Benton never rushed me. He answered all my questions, even the ones that were not verbally spoken. His calm and personal manner alleviated any anxiety. The front office staff, radiation techs, and nurses are all to be commended. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Benton!
