      I was lucky enough to get Dr. Benner when I needed an emergency surgery. Everyone said that he was the best and I lucked out getting him and that was for darn sure. He has been a surgeon for a long time and you usually think of doctors as cold and unfeeling but you can't help but feel that he likes what he does and I felt like he genuinely cared for me. I was in the hospital for a long time but he came to see me every day with a smile and updates and never felt like my questions were a bother
