He is a nice fellow, very conscientious and a good doctor. I don't give out compliments about doctors easily. Seems to have accurate analysis of what is going on with me and actually cares. Asked me what had been done since the last time. Problem involved sleep apnea and headaches. I was impressed with how he handled my questions for a new patient and did pick up that he is compassionate. I recommend this doctor and hope I can continue to see him.

The doctor isn't attentive, it took 3 weeks for him to look at my lab results, I've waited in line for prescriptions that didn't get called in, and he keeps prescribing drugs that aren't tier one on the formulary. He also thinks his patients are ignorant and he's condescending and dismissive of your concerns. Also beware this medical practice, the doctor you see the first time is the only one they'll let you see. Office policy. I had had Dr. Benton recommended to me, but the soonest appointment was Dr. Patel,and I didn't realize I could never see Dr. Benton after I accepted the appointment with Dr. Patel. I have to find a new practice, even though I would like to see Dr. Benton.
