Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Benson "It is vital to treat a patient as a whole person and as part of a family dynamic. Keeping the ?big picture? in mind when treating a patient for a specific issue is critical to long-term healing. Focusing only on the specific disease state or organ involved is short-sighted as there is usually systemic effect on the entire body."

Excellent choice for middle aged men - very good listener and unbelievable follow through. It was as good as the Stanford Med VIP program. He calls me after almost every visit. Good Stuff in an impersonal Med World :)
