Ratings for Dr. Ernst Bensler
This doctor seemed brilliant when we found him and I thought he was helping our family. In the end he literally destroyed it. Both my husband and I were in dire need of psychiatric help. He did not refer us. I think his ego was involved, and that he believed he knew as much about psychiatric medicine as any specialist in the field could. He gave me exactly the wrong medication. He poured gasoline on a fire and was unable to recognize my literally psychotic state. My children suffered terribly. My husband had his own problems. My family crashed and burned. My children paid the price. While Dr. Bensler was excellent in many ways -- among the best -- I would sue him if I could. Nothing he could do would ever repay me for the harm he inflicted.
This doctor's incompetence put my mother into a fog of gabapentin and oxy. She died of a treatable cancer that went undiagnosed for years. This horrible doctor robbed our family of a caring, vibrant mother we all needed. I can't believe he is still in business.
Good overall physician. A couple of concerns though. He seems reluctant/adverse to referring patients to specialists and the wait times are inexplicably ridiculous! Every single appointment (even morning appointments) results in a minimum 1+ hour wait. I am a senior citizen, so having to wait 1-1.5 hours PAST my scheduled appointment is both frustrating and at times difficult.
I started seeing Dr.Bensler in 1994 (pregnant with second child-high risk pregnancies), he has been our family doctor fir many yrs. I love his nurse Rosie (although through the yrs his other nurses were friendly&caring too. Rosie is my fav!) Dr. Bensler use to "run behind" a lot (over-booking I think!), however, the last few yes they have improved thus issue tremendously. He specialized in ADD (which my daughter has), and has been supportive of my daily headaches /migraines, I can't say enough about how wonderful he has been to our family. 💝 I recommend him (&his staff) highly!
I find it interesting that one of the common complaints is that Dr Bensler does not like to refer patients to specialists. I was a patient of his for 28 years and loved him but recently I found that he refused to refer me to specialists. When I finally convinced him otherwise, it took him at least 2 months to write the referral letter. I think he is an excellent diagnostician and but my frustration with the referral issue and the fact that is takes 2 weeks to get an appointment and then you have to wait for at least an hour in the waiting room finally forced me to get another doctor. Over the years he has given me excellent service but he made it known he was very frustrated with the current health system.
Dr Benzler is my child's FDoctor and he is an outstanding one. He is knowledgeable, caring, gentle, professional and all you would want in a doctor. it is true you wait to see him, but it so worth it for the interaction that one gets. One of the very best doctors, I have met.
