I have seen Dr. Benton four times over the past two years. On each visit he has asked how I was and what issues I had. He listens, and his responses are very clear and straightforward. What impresses me most is how he (no pun intended) gets right to the heart of the matter, orders appropriate tests and proceeds from there. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Benton spent less than 6 minutes with me in 2 office visits. He tosses radiology report on a chair and sprints out the door. Told me he didn't need to see me for 3 years. After carefully reading this report, I saw there is a NEW condition that could lead to stroke! I WONDER IF BENTON EVEN BOTHERED TO READ THE RADIOLOGY REPORT? Stay away, self consumed, doesn't even spend 3 minutes with his patients. I will find a doctor who cares enough to read reports of other medical docs.

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!
