Specialties

Dr. David Bene has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

PTSD not understood by Bene

Wrote that I have PTSD. When I became anxious during the exam he kept repeating,"what's wrong with you?" I shouldn't have to explain my reason for having PTSD TO him.

Not impressed

Needs to have more eye contact with patient and show more concern. He comes off as being condescending and had a problem acting compassionate. In the end he referred me to someone else, for my problem and wrote me a prescription for lenses a bit higher than 2 other places that I went to.

Wouldn't go back

Very lengthy appointment with much time spent talking about unrelated issues. I didn't feel that I got a comprehensive eye evaluation. Very expensive.

Disappointing, Unprofessional

Keeps poodles which are bred for show in his MEDICAL OFFICE like its a kennel! Does not take credit cards, but also does not keep change on hand for cash payments. Have to beg for a receipt at visits. Equipment is old, out of date and generates errors such as needs service or recalibration warnings. After 3 years of treatment found out both diagnosis and treatment were incorrect. Does not like to answer questions.
