Patient Comments (1)
in Fair Haven, NJ |
Dr. Benz in our initial office meeting and subsequent phone conversations has taken the time to answer my questions. Not only does he take the time to answer my questions but does it in a clear and concise manner and with the utmost respect, patience and thoughtfulness, questions, that I am sure, he has answered a thousand times before. After a conversation with Dr. Benz I feel hopeful and feel that I am further along in coming to a decision on the best course of action to follow.
