Patient Comments (1)
in Davenport, IA |
Dr. Benda has cared for my mother on 2 separate occasions, myself for something more minor, and one of my children. In all of our cases he definitely seemed to listen to our concerns and took time to explain what he thought was going on and treatment options---he didn't have the God complex of this is how it is because I say so and that's that. He was equally as caring with his follow-up care.
