I can not say enough about Dr. Benjamin. He really took the time to review my file before I came, listened, asked lots of questions and not once did I feel like I was boring him, hurried and that my complaints weren't valid. I've been struggling for the last year and a half and have seen a hand full of doctors and specialist with no answers. Dr. Benjamin has given me some answers and has directed me to a place where I feel I will get the best treatment. Thank you Dr. Benjamin for treating me like I matter and that you restored my faith in what a great doctor should be like.

He explains things clearly,impressed that he came to lobby to greet me and walked me back to lobby in office. He's a gentleman and very caring. He's my favorite Doctor and I have seen a lot this past year after my stroke. Easy to talk to.

I was so encouraged with my first appointment with Dr. Benjamin. I now have hope there will be an answer to health issues that began about two years ago. His interest, caring and professionalism, critical questions, answers, and wonderful personality were very encouraging.

Dr Benjamin has been an Intercal part in my issues of. Paralysis . He takes his time and truly cares about what’s best for you. I have come to realize just how sincere and caring he is about his patients health. We arrived at his office late and he had an important meeting to be at after work and he still took the time to take us into his office and do an examination on me. He’s thorough and articulate, his heart is truly in his work. You will be in the best hands possible.
