    I think that Dr. Benson just gives me the, the time of day, and he is really good at just kind of like listening, and you know figuring out what I'm concerned about, and putting it in more technical terms because I'm not the best at having coherent thoughts, and things like that. But I think that he, he's good at doing that, and figuring out exactly what it is I'm trying to say, you know?

    Dr. Benson was very detailed in explaining to my daughter. The medical issues that she's experiencing. We felt confident in his assessment of the situation. He was very polite and easy-going and we're excited to move forward with using him as our treating physician.

    He was very knowledgeable and was very helpful with my daughter and also made her feel very comfortable. We'll definitely want to see him again.

    Dr. Benson and his staff and his nurse were incredible - they're great - they listen, they were thorough, they did everything. We are new patients today, so we had a very pleasant visit - so highly recommend Dr. Benson and his staff and everybody there. Thank you.

    I felt that Benson was dismissive of my thoughts concerning my child as well as a bit patronizing to my child. We went in originally for a hair loss concern that somehow was misconstrued into a eating disorder. Ridiculous waste of time in my opinion for what appears to be a group looking to meet a statistic quota.

    Hello my name is --- and Dr. Benson sees both of my children --- and ---. And I absolutely love him the quality of care he provide is very thorough. He explains everything if (INAUDIBLE) it he takes good excellent care of my children since they've started coming to him and I very much trust him with my Children's Healthcare in their lives as well. And I have a lot of respect for him and he is very knowledgeable and very kind.

    Would be nice if the doctor would ask the parent if there were any concerns instead of just a resident asking.

    I am satisfied with what they did for my son and I really liked the treatment. They were lovely and we were properly cared for.

    The provider was... the provider was awesome. They did my medical history, they did everything. So, the provider was awesome.

    He was a really great doctor. He listened to my concerns and questions, and most importantly he listened to my son's concerns and questions. And he answered everything thoroughly and made sure we understood everything before we left the office.

    I was concerned that I wasn't, as a parents, I was not called in until after the appointment was finalized, prescriptions were already sent out to the pharmacy. He was prescribed something that he did not need, cause he had already taken it. He did not remember due to his mental health condition at the time. So I sent him in because at 16 I want him to get the feel of going to the doctor by himself and answering the questions himself, but I think I should have been called in a little sooner once more import

    He was rude and condescending and tried to make his own judgment about my medical health without consulting me. Thank you.
  • May 7, 2020
    They have been very attentive and I really liked how we were treated.
  • May 4, 2020
    Dr Benson was very thorough and very kind. We felt very relieved that a dr was finally listening to my daughters concerns. We feel very hopeful in the future.

    Dr. Benson goes out of his way to listen and explain everything to us. He caught where the _______ prescribed the wrong antibiotic (one in which she is allergic to) to my daughter. As soon as he caught the hospital's mistake, he immediately sent someone to catch us before we left and brought ya back in to his office to explain it to us. Dr. Benson is AMAZING and truly appreciated by my daughter and myself!
