Patient Comments (3)
Paris, TX |
The staff member I saw seemed to be competent. The front end office staff [sic.] conducts business like a slumber party - more Facebook concern than patients. Very poor service, if any, for scheduling at both Ponchatoula and Amite offices. Left on hold for more than five minutes, appointment cancelled by their office - no reschedule. Business must be good - no more from me. Too many other doctors available

I recently visited Dr. Benson for skin spots that look similar to sun spots and was first seen by his nurse practitioner. After discussing the issue with his nurse, I was then told that the skin discoloration was permanent and the pigmentation would never return and there was simply nothing to be done about it. I have recently visited two other dermatologists in the area for a 2nd opinion and was told that I have eczema and the pigmentation would return in a month after treatment. It has.

The doctor took it upon herself to administer filler where she deemed necessary and when I didn't like the results she lied and stated filler wasn't injected in those areas. I went to another doctor who said the filler is there and was horribly administered. She still refuses to dissolve the filler. Do NOT use this office!
