Troy, NY |
I would not recommend this dr. He makes you feel less then human. Belittles you and doesn't take you seriously.
in Schenectady, NY |
Dr. Benton is one of the most kind, caring, compassionate doctors I have ever had. He is very thorough with his testing and procedures. I travel 40 minutes to his Troy office to see him. I will not see any other physician in the practice. I would recommend him to anyone!
in Menands NY |
There is no other doctor in this area more caring than Dr. Benton. He doesn't rush through appointments; he listens to your concerns; he speaks with you and not at you in terms you can understand. He can be down to earth and he can be forceful depending on you. I highly recommend Dr Benton.
Worsted Dr I have ever delt with in my life .Had to find another dr after I was told I was waisting his time.Glad I did because if I hadn't And went by what he said I would be dead
