Dr Benson has been my GP for 7 years, and I like very much her style of communicating with patients and the care she gives. She helps put things into perspective, but also pursues every potential problem until it is solved or kept under control. She sounds realistic but kind, makes me feel that she respects my intellect and cares for my wellbeing, and I have complete trust in her decisions.
I saw Dr Benson over a period of 10 years while I was a patient at this practice. She is wise, helpful, practical and to the point. She was always willing to give extra attention when it was really important, and both her kindness and medical expertise made a big difference to me at difficult times.
Dr Benson is incredibly dismissive of mental health. I explained that I was really struggling from low mood, and was told that everyone feels sad sometimes and I needed to get over it (I have now been diagnosed by a different doctor with depression that I had already been suffering for 3 years before going to Dr Benson).
