Dr. Benson is an all around great doctor. When I had osteomyelitis he brought me the food I asked for, and he let me watch Spider-Man 2 in the patients room when I stayed overnight. I would definetly have doctor Benson as my doctor again

I saw Dr Benson on Monday in JME due to chronic pain. He was great! Dr Benson was able to get a pain specialist to see me right then. Both Dr Benson and Dr Ali listened and seemed to care. My treatment offered three days of relief, but after two months of horrific pain, three days of relief was better than nothing. I am so grateful that I saw Dr Benson; he is a great doctor!

Did not listen to me at all, talked over me, was incredibly rude to myself and my visitors, was very belittling, accused me of lying about things that were clearly stated in my medical records, did not spend any time with me and was impossible to locate, and ultimately misdiagnosed me.
