Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure.

If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice. Baylor Scott & White Health does not manage the insurances accepted for this doctor.

Dr. Ben reminds me by bringing back memories of when I went to the doctor with my grandmother. He listens and can repeat what you have said in his summary. He is attentive and not on the computer the whole time and only glances at you every once in awhile. He' there in person if you know what I mean. I find myself worrying about the time he spends with me! I am for sure he has others to care for! Best Dr. I have ever seen!
