Specialties

Dr. John M Benson has the following 2 specialties

  • Radiology

    A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
    The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
    Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

Greedy balance-billing by monopoly radiologist

Benson is the only radiologist on staff at MDI Hospital, so has no accountability for high fees and sleazy balance-billing. Most patients don't even realize that they are being sent to an out-of-network physician.

Not my cup of tea

Seemed unprepared for the procedure & rather unsure of himself. Staff actually asked me what biopsy they were supposed to be doing!?! Took WAY longer than necessary; I was seriously tempted to get up and walk out of there more than a few times before it was all over. Never again!
