Dr. Benjamin is great with children. My son smiled from ear to ear while being examined. My first visit was an emergency for a corneal abrasion and the wait was very long but I was still pleased after the care we received. The follow up visit was quick and equally as amusing for my son.

One Star

Dr. Luchs is a terrible communicator. I asked him several times about a test I knew I needed for corrective eye surgery. He never answered me. I found out from his staff that he noted on my record to schedule the test on the next apt. I will never go back to him.
