in Wilmot, sd |
He did not listen to me, did not take time to review my medical records,told me he would write a referrel to 2 different drs but had nurse write a name and number on a scrap paper instead. He gave me two diagnosis that did not match my symptoms, like out of the the 10 symptoms listed,that he told me to look up myself, i had the bottom 2. I do not recommend this DR to anyone, I have 3 dtrs and if they struggle like I have they nor their family will see Dr benson

Dr. Benson has been my dr for almost 3 years with zero progress. Maybe im a difficult case but i want a dr to not just give up. Also asked me not to bring my kids with to med refill appointments...hello single mom in constant pain. Time to find someone who wont give up on helping me.

After struggling with some postpartum pelvic issues, Dr. Benson has helped me to get back to my old self. He provided top quality care, explained everything g appropriately and treated me as a whole person (not just addressing my pelvic issue). I can't say enough good things about this doctor. If you are struggling with any pelvix health problems, please schedule an appointment with him asap. You don't have to love with these symptoms and he can help you achieve the quality of life you deserve!

Very patient in answering specific questions and explaining procedures. He made me feel like no question was too trite to answer. In the operating room I only used a local anesthetic and the whole time I was having the surgery, he talked me through what he was doing and encouraged me that I was doing great, he also was so courteous to the other health care workers in the surgery room.

My daughter had a partial hysterectomy and pelvic floor reconstruction done by Dr. Benson and she was in a lot of pain after discharge. She called his office and was told to go to acute care because they were all booked up. What kind of quake would refer his surgical patient, who is in a lot of pain, to an unknown Dr.? In my opinion this Dr.deserves to lose his license. He sure fouled me, a RN, that he was a good Dr. I am applauded at his care! My daughter should have sued him for negligence!

He is a very knowledgable caring doctor. He explains things in a way I understood and made me feel like he really cares. I felt like like he listened to my concerns. If not for Dr Benson, I would still be having sometimes unbearable pain and discomfort. Since seeing him, my life has truly changed. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!! I am so thrilled I was referred to him!
