Specialties

Dr. Eddie G Benge has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

Presbyterian Problems

I only saw Dr. Benge, who seemed fine, a few times because Presbyterian double-billed and incorrectly billed me and my insurance for services, and after several months of failing to resolve their errors with Presbyterian's rude and incompetent customer service, I paid them off just to be rid of them, and went to another doctor whose billing dept. knows how to bill properly and has helpful, competent, customer service.

The best!

BTW, Dr Benge is no longer at this location. He was my Doc in the '80's. I moved out of state - back now and recently saw him again. I think he may be the best doc. In Albuq. The staff and practice are great too. It can take a while to check in but it is smooth sailing after that.
