The absolute worst ever. The first thing his staff does is hand you a bottle to pee in, although I said I was not interested in pain medication. He decided that I should have a spinal injection. I was in a room with four or five other patients waiting my turn. He told each of us that the injection may not work, but if it did, we should have a series of three spread out over time. 7 tries to insert an IV! After the injection did nothing, he claimed should have. Implied that I was drug seeking!

I am a patient of Dr. Binegar's for various severe pain management problems. His staff is knowledgeable and accommodating and he listens, is precise and knows "his stuff". I am going to tout PRP...PLASMA REPLACEMENT THERAPY, which was suggested to me by Dr. Binegar at the onset of my TORN TENDON PAIN. I chose another avenue and after no success we went forward with PRP. After two injections I have had little or no pain from my tendons. To me this is a phenomena. Learn about this...!!!

I have never been more full of despair and lacking of hope than sitting across from Dr B- As long as you are willing to pay for injections even when they are not helping with long term relief, he and his staff are great to work with and he appears to listen and care- once you question his treatment approach or become hesitant to continuing treatment- the true doctor comes out- I would not recommend this provider to anyone that is seeking long term care-

I would not recommend this Doctor to my worst enemy. He doesn't listen to how the pain is effecting my life. His only option was to inject steroids into my joint. When I told him I wasn't interested in having that procedure done his response was I was welcome to go elsewhere. Really??

I was having shoulder problems and ended up getting a few steroid injections for Bursitis. So glad I took the time to check out the problem. I feel much better and happier altogether. Thank you Dr. Benegar and Staff for your expertise and care!
