Ms Benson (does not deserve Dr title!) was very unwilling to listen to my symptoms from the very start and argued with everything I said. She had a bad attitude, called me a liar! Refused my request for a test, screamed at me as she got in my face, and slammed the door on her way out. What kind of professional acts this way??? I don't feel I provoked this in any way. I don't know why she didn't seem to like me or maybe she was having a bad day. All I know is her behavior is unacceptable under any circumstances! Even if I had provoked it! I said I was gonna get a second opinon and she laughed and said "You can get 50 for all I care!" What? I just don't understand. I tried to explain one of my symptoms which was that one of my breasts had become larger then the other over night and this is where she called me a liar. I had seen her once before maybe a year and a half earlier and I did remember she had a bad attitude then also, once I saw her again, I had forgotten. But anyway, she said that this is the way my breasts had been on my last visit it and I assured her that that was not the case. I tried to explain that yes, one breast had always been slightly larger but this was different, it had become a whole cup size, or more, larger and I certainly knew when it happened because it was very heavy and made me feel lop-sided. Yet she continued to disagree with me and say I was wrong, I think I know my own body thank you! I have never been treated this poorly by someone who is supposed to be a professional in all my life! The health care community seems to be declining in the sense that it is very hard to find a doctor who is even willing to listen anymore and if you bring in your list of symptoms and history on a piece of paper they treat you like your a mental case, I have over a year's worth of symptoms and illness even further back, including cancer, with memory problems and I feel it is all important to know! And with dr's like ms benson it seems hopeless that I will ever get the care I need or deserve!!! I mean if an MRI would ease my mind then why shouldn't you order the test? I have insurance so what is the big deal??? I think it is also important to note that "Dr" Benson has also had 2 law suits against her in the past 10 years and I have read other bad reviews on her also... Oh! And did you know that pain in your breasts is a normal sign of aging?? hmmm interesting Dr Benson! You better hope I don't end up having a serious problem because you will hear from me again if I do! I'm about to give up all together...
