This is a follow up to my husband’s review after his robotic surgery last December.. 2020.. he had an infection 2 weeks after the procedure and went by ambulance back to Bronxville New York Presbyterian where Dr Benson assured him he would meet him.. he was there with a septic infection from December 20thto December 26th.. never saw him and the staff was very elusive except for the infectious control Doc.. she was awesome.. thank god. Even after all that he never took blame for the fact that he nicked my husband’s intestines.. he had a horrific year of trying to get it healed only to have one of our local wonderful doctors to respect it and now he is finally ok.. think twice.. he looks the other way and is lucky we are who we are and did not want anything except for my husband to get well

Excellent surgeon. He spent a significant amount of time with my wife and I explaining the procedure, statistical outcomes and potential side effects. He also has a wonderful staff, especially his nurse, Tanesha.

NASTY Doctor. Truly shocked at what horrible manners this man has. Or lack there of I should say. I cannot believe he is part of such an excellent practice with so many fabulous doctors at New York-Presbyterian Westchester Group. I highly suggest patients choose another Doctor rather than use him. I just left his office completely appalled at his behavior. He is very rude and truly unprofessional. Clearly he must be having a bad day and took it out on me!

Lawrence Hospital has scored a home run. The brilliant and talented surgeon, Dr. Mitchell C Benson, has joined its staff as Director of Urology. .Recommended highly for his second to none surgical expertise and for his wealth of knowledge, enhanced by his kind and compassionate demeanor....a perfect combination.

The Doctor is fine - the support staff is the worst i have encountered - they do not pickup the phone - you leave a message & usually require two follow up calls before you get a return call - i waited 2 weeks for test results & lost a month in scheduling a procedure because of their laxity - the last straw was i showed up for last appointment (3 1/2 hour round trip) and the doctor wasn't there that day - I had not been informed - the appointment was on their computer - i never got an apolology
