I took my daughter to Dr. Benson after she was unsuccessfully treated by a Nurse Practitioner from another dermatology group in Bristol for warts on her fingers. Dr. Benson was kind, thorough, and very professional. The problem was resolved quickly and I would highly recommend him without reservation. He is great!

I see Dr. Benson every year for a skin check. He is thorough and has a wonderful "bedside" manner. He takes time to explain problems, treatments and outcomes. I would recommend Dr. Benson with no reservation.

I had an appointment with dr. Benson March 8, 2017. I had a very nice visit with him. He did check my skin for any abnormal. He did find 3 places that were non-cancerous. He froze a place on my face & he took a place off of my leg. He was a very nice dr. The nurse was also so nice. I was nervous at first but talking to the nurse I became relaxed. I will be going back for a follow up & now I won't be nervous. I would remend him to go to.
