Dr. Benson's reputation as a brilliant clinician and surgeon precedes him. He exemplifies the Hippocratic Oath in every way and can surely stand as a model to which all young physicians can aspire .He listens carefully to his patient's questions and concerns and then responds by sharing his wealth of knowledge in a kind, compassionate and clear manner. Dr.Benson returns phone calls himself snd has been reachable in the middle of the night when an emergency presented itself. Highly recommended.

In 2010, because of kidney Cancer, Dr. Benson removed my dad's left kidney. His staff told us to see Dr. Benson for yearly cancer screenings. In 2013, a chest XRay showed a large mass in my dad's lungs. A CT scan did not. To rule out a recurrence of Cancer and a metastasis to my dad's lungs, I made an appointment to see him. THIS WAS A MISTAKE! He was obnoxious. Rudely, he asked why my dad came back to see him. He DISMISSED his own medical protocol. We asked for a referral to a pneumologist. HE CLINCHED HIS FISTS, RAISED HIS ARMS AND IN AN UP AND DOWN MOTION. HE SHOUTED because the CT scan did not show a mass: "I REFUSED TO GIVE YOU A REFERRAL." He said I was "WASTING HOSPITAL RESOURCES!" He DID NOT CARE that it was definitely important to rule out lung Cancer. In 2010, Benson WAS the chairman of the Urology Dept. As of October 2013, he has been REMOVED from this position. Dr. Benson should be removed from Columbia Presbyterian Hospital's staff! He withheld comprehensive medical care.
