If you are lucky enough to be a patient of Dr. Bensons you will meet a very talented, intelligent and compassionate man. Dr. Benson helped me to gain my life back after enduring a year of intense physical pain. He was the first and only Dr who took the time to tell me “you will get better” and I have under his care.

Dr Benson is an amazing, kind and compassionate doctor. His expertise and knowledge in Anesthesia and pain control make him one of the best doctors in the area. I am an extremely difficult "case" and Dr Benson has spent a lot of time in finding the best solution for me. I can not thank him enough, and would highly recommend him.
