Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Benson is a wonderful pediatrician. My kids adore her! There is usually a wait past the scheduled appointment time because they are so busy. Dr Benson is well worth the wait though, she's very knowledgeable and personable.
Dr.Benson has been the BEST pediatrician for my 5 month old baby girl. STAFF IS WONDERFUL! They have ALWAYS been VERY respectful! The nurses, nurse practitioner, and the women working the front desk are AMAZING! PLUS the waiting room is CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE! I highly recommend Medlock Pediatrics
I really did not like it. Its not the 1st time that she doesn't seem friendly. She is more of "OK I check the kid out on to the next" type. I didn't see her really caring about the children and she always seems in a rush to get out of the room. This was the last time I bring my child here. I have been taking my son there for years and always hoped things would change with both of the doctors but clearly it hasnt
Shes the best!!!
The wait time can be shorter. If not, then i would appreciate it if they would schedule my appointment for the time it would actually start
Love this place. I take all my kids here. The only thing they should work on is timing. You can get there 30in before your appointment and they don't see you till 15 min after the right time.
Besides the wait after we arrived everyone treated us kindly!
I used Dr. Benson based on her Zoc Doc review. But I was not pleased with the service that took an hour to get seen by Dr. Benson. Also, there was a rushed bedside manner with minimal eye contact. Too many clients were on her caseload and it would seem we were just a number.
Excellent as usual.
Dr. Benson has always been the best in my opinion, she has always been professional. She leaves a positive impression at each visit.
She was very informative and great with our newborn. She answered all our questions and gave us as helpful welcome packets and pamphlets. The visit was quick, but we also felt like she was very focused on us during the appointment.
Dr. Benson is great with my girls and she is very nice and easy to talk with.
Dr. Benson is great. Very professional and compassionate.
Dr. Benson is fantastic! Very thorough, knowledgeable, and a quick visit. Nobody likes being in the doctors office all day.... especially kids. My week old baby boy didn't even cry during our visit and was asleep by the time we left! She was sweet, gentle, and patient with him. And as brand new parents, my boyfriend and I left feeling very happy and relieved that everything was more than okay with our son. We'd recommend Dr Benson to anyone and everyone!
She was very nice and so were the nurses. The really showed intrest in my 2yr old daughter and she wasnt scared at. The waiting rooms were so clean and open for kids to walk around. Also I loved they had books inthe rooms to keep the kids busy while they waited. The wait was long but I understood because I was a new patient. Great doctor office. I am glad I finally found my daughter a doctor I feel comfortable with her having.
Dr. Benson has always been and still is excellent. It is very easy to talk to her, and she is great with our child.
My son has been a patient of Dr. Benson's since birth (now 6). She has seen us through many emergencies and illnesses. She is easy to communicate with, never seems rushed during a visit, and I have personally seen her whip some folks into action at the hospital with authority and ease. The wait times can be a little lengthy, however, I remember all too well that I have been on the other end and rushed in to be seen immediately and probably made someone else wait.
We just Love Dr. Benson, so great with the patients and parents!! Thank You
Great as always, but the wiat time is long.
Dr Benson is very personable. I love the fact that she has my daughter explain her symptoms to her directly. She knows every little detail about how to make my daughter feel more comfortable during her visits.
Dr. Benson was excellent as always.
She is very thorough. She covers every aspect. He staff is also professional and there is not enough I can say about how great Dr. Benson is. I am blessed that we have her!
Dr Benson is the best hands down---only down fall is the wait..ANY appt after probably 3pm is ALWAYS a LONGGGGG WAIT even after your appt...I always get there on time for my specified appt time but always a MINIMUM of ONE HOUR----Must and needed to improve.
The waiting room is filthy with stained chairs and dirty stained carpet. The intern who worked with Doctor Benson was very sarcastic and mouthy.
Dr. Benson is awesome! I highly recommend her.
Other than having to wait so long, the visit was great. My son has seen Dr. Benson since birth, & we love the office. Everyone is very nice & professional. They have always taken good care of him.
She is so very attentive, very personal and friendly. Even with all the kids am sure she see she remembers her patients! ! Love her!!!
Very helpful! Great practice!
She has been very caring every time we have been to her and gives you lots of information to the questions you have.
We have been seeing Dr Benson for years. She and her staff had been comforting, friendly and knowledgable. This visit was very quick, because we are up to date on all immunizations and healthy.
Generally the visit went very well despite the long wait which i understand being a new patient.
I have taken my son, who is nearly 19, and my daughter who is 14, to see Dr. Benson since they were born My son had health concerns the first few years, and Dr. Benson was very thorough, worked us in when we needed her, made referrals when necessary, and showed compassion. My daughter has always been overly dramatic, yet Dr. Benson remained patient and kind every time! I travel 40 minutes to her office because I like her that well.
Every time we come to see Dr. Benson we always are treated wonderfully. I only have one child and she is my precious gift, I am protective, and I completely trust Dr Benson and her staff. I HIGHLY recommend this office.
I really like Dr Benson the only thing I do not like is the long wait. Everytime I take my daughter to this office we are at the office way over an hour. I feel this is to long when you have an appointment. Also the kids are so loud and misbehaving in this office. I know that is not the office fault but it is extremely annoying to wait over an hour with bad kids running all over the place.
We love dr benson, but we were almost 2 hours before being seen today. Kinda rough when your hold doesn't feel good.
The visit to her office is always good.
The office is very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Benson herself is awesome and understanding. I am definitely making her my son's permanent pediatrician. I am happily willing to drive from stone mountain to her office in Duluth just to have her as a doctor.
she is a wonderful knowledgeable doctor. She treat you with respect and dignity. I would highly recommend her to anyone with young children.
She seemed all over the place and when things calmed down she was rough with my baby and not very friendly. Needs to work on bedside manner...
Excelente atención, completamente satisfecha con la consulta!!!!!
Love the practice! I've been taking my kids to her for 20 years : )
We have been seeing Dr Benson for many years now. She is friendly and my girls like her. She explains and answers all their questions. Her staff are also very friendly and comforting.
Too much waiting time
Great pediatrician! We have been going to her since my daughter was born (3 years ago). The Nurses and staff are fantastic as well. They are Health care professionals Who Truly care! We love Medlock pediatrics!
Too much wait time even after scheduling the appointment. This is always the issue with this place. It took total more than 2 hours. First waiting in the lobby and then waiting in the room.
I love Dr. Benson! She is wonderful and I highly recommend her!
She was pretty good and patient with my daughter
Dr Kathryn Benson... Very down to earth and caring woman. Loved,loved, loved
Always have excelent experience
Wonderful staff, comfortable atmosphere, and excellent physician! She takes the time to make sure our needs are met and that we are at peace in each situation. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kathryn Benson and her staff for your family's needs.
This is our second visit in a week the first being his newborn check up and this being a follow up. I'm a slightl paranoid mom and nothing was wrong but they were very nice about me being a loon lol. We already like the office and will be continuing his care here !!
We love Dr. Benson. We've been with her for over7years. Shes awesome
The visit was great. I am disappoint in ZocDoc. I finished the paper work online and still had to complete paper work. That was disappointing.
We have seen Dr Benson since Sept 05, when we moved here and my daughter started in Kindergarten. She and her staff have always been professional, friendly, informative and caring.
Hope Saturday appt schedule shown on ZocDoc.
Loved her!! She was so friendly and patient. She answered all mine and my husbands questions.
Dr. Benson is great with all 3 of my daughters!
It was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a doctor. The office staff is a little rude at the counter but once you get past that things are wonderful.
To be honest I like Dr. Kathryn Benson than the other doc in their office. We did not feel rushed. She was sweet to my little girl and she knows how to make them feel comfortable. My daughter who's only 3 were giggling half of the time she was being "interviewed" by her. It was a pleasant experience. The wait was a little long. My 1st wait (with my older son) it took them 55 mins to call his name!! Then I thought it must be a hectic day. Now this time with my daughter it was 40mins. Guess what.. I'll take that just to see a great pediatrician! Thanks.
We can always count on Dr. Benson to take the time to discuss alternatives and provide explanations. Her sunny personality makes it so much easier to deal with health issues.
Always the best as usual. She is the best
Always caring and informative!
Dr. Benson and Dr. Batlle are amazing, insightful, knowledgeable pediatricians with a fantastic, caring staff. I have been bringing my sons to this practice for 15 years. :)
Its always a pleasure takings son to see her!!!!!!
Dr. Benson is an amazing, insightful, caring pediatrician who has a fantastic staff. I have referred many friends and neighbors to this practice!
One of the best pediatricians in the Metro Atlanta area! She shows urgency when needed. She actually remembered my son's history without always referring to her notes. She never made me feel like my concerns weren't valid or I was overreacting. And that meant so much to me since I was a new mom. She's absolutely wonderful!!
It was Great!!!
Dr. Benson is an amazing pediatrician. Her bedside manner and the way she calms our daughter, is very impressive. Takes her time, is very thorough. Only complaint is that it tends to take some time after the nurse's consult before she comes in. Perhaps it's because she does spend time with each patient. But overall a very good pediatrician. She was highly recommended to us and I am glad to pass on the recommendation.
I like the questions she asks and if you have any concerns she takes care of it right away. The staff is very nice and professional and she accepts medicaid . The office is clean I am very content with it.I am not disappointed she can come off as brash sometimes but she is really busy
Saturday appt was not available for on line (ZocDoc ). When I was away from home, I had hard time to make an Sat appt b/c available time was not shown on line. So I had to pick other day.
All 3 of my kids visit Dr Benson. We love her and the office. Nurse Maggie r
Unprofessional office and will promptly drop patients - I work in the medical field and have never heard of this!

We have been going to Dr. Benson for 15 years. Everyone at their office is very professional and helpful. I would not take 3 my kids anywhere else.
She was great and understanding with an older child who was very nervous about getting his shots. Awesome bedside manner as always...a GREAT doctor!
