      He has been very helpful in a time of great grief and suffering. He is a good man who can make a person who is in excruciating pain bus a smile.I had a hard time with doctors before and so far have found two really good people who happen to be doctors that have actually treated me with dignity and compassion he is one and Doctor Benard is the other.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
