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.

Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. 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.

He did a painful procedure on my knee and even though it hurt a little, he did his best to make me comfortable with the procedure. His nurse was also a big help as his sidekick. :) I did not even realize he removed fluid and gave me my steroid shot at the same time. In a bit, it was all over and I was ready for my beach vacation!

Dr Benton is great! He is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He is also very gentle when I'm in pain but thorough in his exams and explains everything so that I understand. He also offers possible treatments to try and doesn't just leap in to do surgery unless it's the last resort, which I like.
