If you're having a problem with your eye, this is the doctor to see. We were referred to Dr Benson by another doctor regarding my daughter. The first doctor told us it could be cancer in her eye. Dr Benson knew immediately that that was not the case and put our minds at ease with a confident and thoroughly explained diagnosis. We were immediately set up with a treatment plan. He was extremely kind and generous with my daughter and very understanding with her father and me. His bedside manner was outstanding. He always took time to reassure my daughter and communicate thoroughly with me and her father at every step. I would recommend anyone to see him.
