I have been with Dr. Benson since 1994 and decided to stay with him when he joined MDVIP. He is truly a very caring physician, takes time to listen to you instead of hurrying you out of his office and has excellent staff. I would rate him well above a 5.
Dr.Benson has been my doctor for 23 years. I dropped out of the MDVIP program last year because of the cost but could not find anyone that could give me the care that Dr. Benson. He is always looking for new ways to keep me as healthy as he can. I appreciate him very much and would recommend him to anyone.
Actually, my story begins long before Dr. Benson was affiliated with MDVIP. He has cared for me since the 1990's. I have always appreciated the fact that he would take the time needed to care for my needs and to insure that I had the information necessary to be in the best health possible.
I am especially pleased that he is a born-again believer as I am and that is another way… See more
Dr. Benson is personable, intelligent, and has diagnosed and successfully treated the causes of symptoms other physicians told me not to worry about. With Dr. Benson I do not have to worry - my health is in good hands.
I've only been with Dr Benson for 1 1/2 years and I am so appreciative of his listening to me, his personal attention to detail, and his easy to understand explanations. He seems more like a friend. His office staff is top notch and approachable.
I appreciate that Dr. Benson listens. Often I may say something that triggers a thought in his mind which helps him to diagnose something. By joining Dr. Benson I have learned more about my body and how to better take care of myself. He never rushes me and for me, knowing he is a Christian, makes me feel at ease. Thank you Dr. Benson.
Overall wellness approach is great. We found some hidden problems that we are addressing. Developed a shoulder problem and rehab was set up with a group that resolved the problem. This was a great referral.
It is a great comfort to have time with a doctor who really listens and we develop a plan for correction rogether. The staff is just like Dr. Benson - they listen - they are… See more
