It was in and out service. Dr. Benson explained what he would do and after completing the procedure, he explained how it went.

Dr. Benson has been the surgeon who cleared my dialysis graft at the Access Center a few times now, most recently yesterday. He is a very compassionate, soft spoken doctor, who spends as much time as you need with him. He invites you to ask questions and even apologizes for the fact that your access is clotted! I would recommend him to anyone!
