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.
