      Dr. Benedict is knowledgeable, however not arrogant. He has a great understanding of neurosurgery and even neurology. Something that was vitally important was that when opening me up, he wanted to minimize my exposure. I had been through four prior procedures with other neurosurgeons who only wanted to get paid for another surgery. Dr. Benedict would rather NOT perform a surgery if it is not in my best interest. His motivation is on my health, not his wallet.

      He is awesome,nice guy! He talked to me before surgery and some how I believed he is the one that can take care of my back problem of 20yrs and he did. I am recovering real fast,thank GOD and thank you DR Benedict. I call him magician!!

      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.
