I was disappointed because the botox was injected only into the muscles right above where my eyebrows come together instead of above the middle of my eyebrows as well because that is a huge part of where the frowning muscles begin. I hadn't gotten botox for a long time and now I won't be getting it again because it is not that helpful.

I was highly impressed with my overall experience with Dr. Ben Benham and his staff, as this was my first visit to the clinic. Dr. Benham was very thorough in his discussion of my condition, treatment options, and expectations with any course of treatment. His overall bedside manner was excellent, and I was instantly made to feel welcome and comfortable during my visit. My follow up appointment is forthcoming, but I expect to encounter the same courtesy and thoughtfulness as before. Thank you Dr. Benham, and offering commendation to your staff as well.

My visit was to have him take a look at something questionable on my forehead and to discuss anti-aging procedures. He said the spot on my forehead needed to be biopsied. Procedure was painless, and they will call with results. He explained the other areas I was interested in, without any effort to 'sell' me whatsoever. I appreciate that. Very friendly doctor and staff.

I am a 79yo Man and It was my first visit to a Dermatologist. I was quite impressed by Dr. Behnam's alert and caring energy. I was equally impressed by his staff.

Courteous, upbeat, interested to hear what I had to say ... and eager to answer questions and/or preempt them by explaining what he was thinking and how he evaluated what he saw (I was there for my annual skin cancer screening). Biopsies were done swiftly, painless and with great care. I will gladly go back for my next screening.
