In my professional career, I have worked with many ophthalmologists. Dr. Benator is the best of the best. She is very thorough and always keeps up to date on the latest medical research and state of the art equipment. When problems are detected, she offers clear explanations and options for treatment, then respects the patient's decision. She and her staff are the perfect balance of friendly and professional. A visit to the office is like receiving service from your most trusted friends.

She did not present in the caring way she indicated she would in her online video - she hadn't read my completed medical info form before seeing me. She didn't know why I was there. Didn't seem to welcome questions - terse responses in a hurry. Felt like I was in a revolving door. She must have spent all of three minutes with me. The rest of the time it was her healthcare helpers. Eyes not given sufficient time to dilate. Feeling deceived and disappointed: Won't be back.
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize if this was your experience at Salt Lake Eye Associates. We always strive to improve. As the lead physician, I personally review the medical information forms with each new patient and I always ask each person "what can I do for you today" as I value hearing each patient's concerns in their own words. Everyone is unique and respected at SLEA. We hope you will give us another chance to show you why SLEA is consistently rated 5 STARS in Eye Care.
