Specialties

Dr. Jeff A Benjamin has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Like MIKEY used to say: I like him!

After my neurologist of 20 yrs retired, I was lucky to find Dr Benjamin. He always answers my questions and asks some too. He actually sits down to talk to me, which some doctors ignore because they want to get to the patient waiting on the assembly line next door. I've been seeing him about 4 yrs and stayed with him when he moved last year. I would recommend him to someone in need of a new neurologist.

First Do No Harm

He is a doc who has clearly forgotten his oath to First Do No Harm. After prescribing an increase in medication that made her fall regularly, he then prescribed drawn out PT which helped a little but only when the med was reduced did she stop falling. Hard to believe this guy has any patients left. At a Sept 2015 appt, he walked into the exam room where my mother had been sitting for about 30 min after sitting in the waiting room for about 30 minutes. With out even asking her to stand up, he just reduced her meds and then said "l am leaving this practice on Nov 1 and will be in a new one close by Jan 1. Dont bother calling for an appt till Jan 1: Every doctor I've spoken to since then in Brunswick County agrees thare is something horribly wrong with this practice.
