Patient Comments (1)
Wellsville, NY |
Dr. Benham may be excellent at cataract surgery but if you are one of the unlucky few who have problems don't be surprised if he can't come up with the answer to why. And don't be surprised if you have a problem that you won't have to wait weeks to even talk about it. I would definitely go to someone else who had much better follow up care. I cancelled my second surgery for this reason.
