“Dr. Benham listened to me when no other obgyn would. He remembered my blood clotting disorder and he gave me a total hysterectomy because I suffered from ovarian cysts every month and endometriosis which made me infertile prior to the surgery. He saved me from extreme pain and monthly er trips! And he was more informed on endometriosis than any other obgyn I had been to! He’s a great doctor, and I’m just so grateful for him!”
