    How was your appointment with Dr. Benz?

    Jun 22, 2021
    I have been a patient of Dr. Benz since emergency detached retina surgery. He saved most of my vision and handled mist of the issues over the last two decades. He is a superb Dr. Post covid, his waiting room time has improved tremendously. Very courteous staff now.
