Gulf Breeze, FL |
Helped my shoulder and neck pain immediately. Same day!
in Destin, FL |
I have severe knee problems. Dr. Benton used a state of the art machine to inject cortisone into the joint's of my knee. My wife was able to watch the procedure on a monitor during the treatment. My knee felt so much better after the treatment and it lasted me for over 12 mos. I felt like a spring chicken.
Terrible bedside manner. Told me cortizone shots were my only hope unless I wanted fusion surgery. Rolled his eyes at me when this made me cry. Gave me SIX cortizone shots in my epidural space. When I told my other doctors about this, they were appalled, and one mentioned that "he must have large car payment." I told him I had a large deductible and would have to pay out of pocket, but he insisted I needed all six shots. These didn't help, and he made me feel worse about my condition.

5 star experience.
in Milton Fl |
As a new patient Dr. Benton understood not only the current pain but took the time to understand my medical history. He was able to perform the needed test to diagnose the problem and recommend treatment. I like that as I don't like to go somewhere else for the testing then wait for results and a necessary reschedule.
