Specialties

Dr. Robert E 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.

Take away his license!!

My son went to Abington Collaborative care and saw Dr. Benjamin. Talk about a joke, both the practice and the Dr. My son was prescribed 7 different medications at 15 years old. When asked to switch Dr's it was said the Dr's in the practice don't like to take on the other Dr's patients. I think more like they don't want to take on Dr. Benjamin's patients. 3 rehabs later, I am now battling a drug addicted child. Thanks but no thanks to Dr. Benjamin. Do the research. Most people say he over medicates. Wish I did!

Met this Quack in St. Lukes

Hmm I was overmedicated by a pain management doctor and another psychiatrist which a crisis team convinced my Dad to 302 me. Long story short Dr.Benjamin kept me 16 days, misdiagnosed me and over medicated me all over again. St.Lukes thinks everyone is Bipolar. I even requested not to go to St.Lukes. It is good to get more than 1 opinion concerning your diagnosis and be pro active in your healing journey. Oh Dr.Schwinderman is a toolbag as well.

Four Stars

to many patients for the time that he has. but is'nt this the case almost every dr.'s office. they just want to suck up your insurance money/ money. know one can afford him if you don't have the insurance that he takes. it's a shame because people are not getting the mental help that is really needed by him & other doctor's.

Helpful and Compasionate

Dr. Benjamin is very professional and extremely knowledgable. His bed side manner is second to none and "follow ups" are helpful.
