      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!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
