This was my second visit to see Dr. Benton. The care I received was just as consistent as my first visit. I don't base my review on cost. If I can't afford to see a doctor after insurance I choose a different doctor that I can afford, not rate the price of the care as an overall rating of the doctor. Doctor Benton was very thorough during my exams and pays attention when I share concerns with him. The only observation I wish to share is that you may have to wait awhile after your scheduled appointment to see the doctor because he may fall behind his schedule while ensuring that all of the patients scheduled before you have enough time to have each of their needs met. I am completely satisfied with the care I have received from Dr. Benton and I recommend him to anyone else needing a local doctor. He accepts most insurances, he is taking new patients, and he has a walk in clinic from 7 am to 7 pm. He also has a very polite attentive staff that put me at ease both times that I interacted

Would not recommend. Dr. Benton is kind and seems like a lovely person. We have found him to be a less than desirable primary care physician. He does not diagnose; he refers. Unfortunately, getting a referral from that office is next to impossible. My poor husband's health deteriorated while we waited almost 3 months for a referral. All the while Dr. Benton ordered x-rays and ultrasounds and lots of out of pocket costly copays and visits. I have no confidence in Dr. Benton.

Very disappointed... Dr. asked for an x-ray of my chest due to extreme congestion but then the office wanted big payment upfront for x-ray, yes I have insurance Blue Cross, but Deductible is not met so no help with x-rays. When I declined the x-ray because of the payment they then did not send my script to the pharmacy. Like I said very disappointed, will be looking for a new doc soon

Dr. Benton is great, but I'm thinking of looking for another primary care doctor because I think lab tests are too frequent for prescription refills and they refuse to tell you the results of your lab tests over the phone, instead requiring that you be seen in person to tell you the results and renew your prescriptions. It seems like this is being done to make more income for Baptist group, and has become a hardship. Forced to go with no meds if not able to make appts., case as of today :-(

Dr. Benton is actually ok. However, his front office staff are horrible and his medical assistant is incompetent. He denied a prescription refill for me yet I was not notified that he wanted to see me before authorizing the refill. I had to learn about it a week later from the pharmacy when I called to check on the status of my request.

First time visit he was not friendly did not even smile at me once. He always seems unsure about his decisions. I have 2 refills for him to call in. I have been trying for 4 days to get him to send in new scripts. They say they have but not yet. Do not return my calls and have not responded to faxes from Wal Mart. Very frustrating and seems to be controlling.
