Dr. Robert W Benson has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

Have gone to Dr. Benson for over 30 years. Professional and courteous and personable.
The doctor took it upon herself to administer filler where she deemed necessary and when I didn't like the results she lied and stated filler wasn't injected in those areas. I went to another doctor who said the filler is there and was horribly administered. She still refuses to dissolve the filler. Do NOT use this office!
Last week while scheduling a routine procedure at a doctor's office, the staff member told me she was shocked at my age. She said she thought I was at least 15 years younger than the age on my paperwork. I told her that I have a great dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon--Dr. Benson. Over the years, he has done Smartlipo and Cellulaze on my legs and abs, CO2 resurfacing under my eyes, and Botox & fillers. I now can wear clothes I could only have dreamed of wearing before (no more thighs rubbing together as I walk!), and I don't feel so tired looking since I no longer have thin, wrinkled skin with dark circles under my eyes. The Botox and fillers are simply amazing! Dr. Benson doesn't over do them, so I feel like I look rested and younger looking--not plastic or distorted. I have known Dr. Benson for years, and he has done many procedures on friends and family members of mine. We all have been so pleased with our results. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone with years of experience, a caring manner, an excellent staff...and mostly results that make you look and feel better.
