WONDERFUL! He saved my life!!! I'm grateful that God led me to him.

Dr. Dupont is an exceptional doctor with years of experience contributing to his expertise. I was very nervous after getting my diagnosis with a rare sarcoma of the thigh & he was able to reassure me & my family by answering our questions & by his knowledge & experience with this type of cancer. I am now recovering from the surgery & my margins were clear- cancer free! He will monitor me closely for the next 5 yrs. I would highly recommend Dr. Dupont.

Dr. Benton Dupont is one of the best surgeons in this area. He is a wonderful and caring man, and came highly recommended by many people who know who 'the best surgeons are. I would trust him -- and did - with my life, and would do so again. He is exceptional.
