  • ""Dr. Benson is absolutely wonderful. I started seeing him at the very end of my pregnancy for back pain. Due to carrying a very large baby, as well as, hoping to aid in opening my pelvis in order to get labor going. Just 2 hours after my second visit early labor had begun and days later our little boy was born. I look forward to returning!!""
