I totally agree with the other reviews. Dr. Benthein is as arrogant as they come. He has ZERO people skills. Where does he get off telling people they aren't in pain. I hope someone sues him and he goes out of business. He never even looked at all the records I sent over. No one should have to put up with this horrible Doctor. His office manager Dawn is just as bad. Marci the PA IS WONDERFUL.

i waited for 1hr in the examining room for him to come in. went outside and asked does he know that I am here? Finally after 1 hour his PA shows up and said that he had emergency surgery and had to leave. Trouble is I heard him tell someone that he had to pick up his daughter at 4:30. At that point I walked out. No, I do not recommend him at all.

Dr. Benthien, please, I am begging you to learn bedside manners. Treat your patients with care and respect. Stop with the arrogant attitude. Belittling your patients will get you no where. Telling them they are exaggerating their pain is wrong and demeaning. Physically grabbing, twisting, and rubbing your patients affected limbs will get you a law suit. Good luck with all that. I have never in my life been treated the way Dr. Benthien treated me. I will be filing a complaint with the state.
