Patient Comments (3)
in Acworth, GA |
Dr. Benedict performed three surgeries on my 85 year old father-in-law who broke his back and neck during a fall. Dr. Benedict explained each procedure carefully and took the time to clearly communicate with my FIL and patiently answer any and all questions. His care is patient centered; his bedside manner is exceptional. We had no doubts that my FIL received the best medical care possible.
in Smyrna, GA |
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.
in McDonough, GA |
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!!
