Dr. Benson is outstanding! She is one of the best doctors I have ever worked with. She is always willing to go the extra mile. She has a busy practice but does whatever is needed to get the patients needs met.. I feel 100% comfortable with her and the staff is amazing too! I would recommend to anyone and consider her and Dr. Singh the best in Vegas!

Being seen by Dr Benson is always a positive experience. She explains things very well. The trick is getting to the exam room to be seen. Your appointment may be for 10:00 a.m. and you arrive on time. But chances are you won't see Dr. Benson until noon or 1:00 p.m. Wait times at this practice are RIDICULOUS. Mine have averaged about two hours each visit, with one even exceeding three hours. They are understaffed. Not enough doctors and not enough technicians. Stop overbooking.

Her staff is one of the most unprofessional staff I have came across. It is hard driving from Arizona to Las Vegas and learn your appointments have changed. After 3 to four times my husband has decided not to continue as a patient. However doctor Benson is an excellent doctor but seems to be oblivious to her staff. If you have to go and see her I recommend you call first to see if you still have an appointment that day. Otherwise stir clear find another doctor.

I have been associated with the medical field for over 30 years and i am very particular about which doctors that I see and I am very cautious to recommend a doctor to others. Dr. Benson is an exception! She professional, nice, she remembers details and she is punctual as possible. Dr. Benson, is very organized, she is a specialist in both Internal and Cardiac medicine. She is one of the top 5 doctors that a patient can see in the Las Vegas Valley. She accepts most insurance!

great she took her time answered my questions i dont know of any doctors where you walk in and see a doctor. she is well worth any waiting time. Her office at times are full but i rather walk into an office where there is people than just one or two. this doctor works her butt off for her patients i will stay with Dr. Benson over any Heart Dr. in las vegas thank you Dr.Benson for caring

Office smells. Overbooked. Looked like an asylum! I was a new patient with the sole purpose of having my pacemaker checked, they didn't bother to tell me until I had been there for 3 hours that they don't even have equipment that can check pacemakers! Wanted to make me come back 4 more times for unrelated tests before giving me an appointment to have my pacer checked by 3rd party! Benson just wants to bang my insurance for as many tests as possible before doing what I actually need. AVOID!

Fantastic Doctor, patient, understanding explains everything thoroughly and in common terms. She's great! The office staff is confused they can't get names right, they have problems calling in the correct prescriptions. Four trips to my pharmacy Three calls to the office and my prescription was wrong. The staff needs to be overhauled.

Love the doctor, but they over book everytime. Prepare to wait at the least 2 to 3 hours. She is great but not worth the wait.

Dr. Benson is the most competent and caring cardiologist I have ever dealt with. She listens carefully to her patient and then acts according to what has been said, plus what she ascertains based on her excruciating detailed analysis. Her methodical treatment and how she categorizes each underlying and contributing causal element is unbelievable. I have been a keenly methodical person my entire life and I have never seen anyone as competent as her. She will earn your trust and keep it. Gary

Dr Benson had an emergency in the middle of her day. It was inconvenient for me, however, I rescheduled (the same day). She didn't stop until she saw all of her patients. I was close to her last patient. I never felt rushed or dismissed. She was attentive and caring. She realized and took care of issues that I had been telling my past doctors about for years. She made a great impression on me.
