Dr. Benjamin is one of those doctors who listen and talks to his patient like they are people not idiots. He does complete testing to help him diagnose, even when there is no explanation for a condition. He did a bone marrow tap on me that was painless. He's excellent in my opinion and his staff always was very competent with me. I moved from the area sadly...making him to far to continue with him.
