The doctor is a stroke specialist, I have seen a good number of physicians, he's fine. I have to travel about 200 miles to see him it is worth it. He knows his practice very well.

Yearly visit generally doesn't generate further therapy. Just repeat of prior year. Looking for new innovations.

Dr Benesch is a wonderful physician. My husband has aphasia from his stroke and he always takes the time it takes for my husband to express himself.

I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Benesch. He was very thorough and spent very much time with me during the visit - much more than is typical these days in a medical office. I am very grateful to Dr. Benesch for his dedication and concern for his patients.
