I started researching functional medicine after having a laundry list of symptoms dismissed by my previous doctor once my labs came back "normal." I knew that I was sick and in need of help from someone that would look beyond standard labs, and that is exactly what I found in Dr. Benton. I did the six month wellness program and by month four I was the healthiest I had been in many years. She was able to personalize the tests and supplementation to fit my exact needs. My only regret is that I didn’t find her program sooner!
I am so thankful that God lead me to Dr Benton. Dr Benton, her staff and support group has helped me with my fight with diabetes. I have gained a lot of good health and am now living a healthier life style by knowing what is not healthy and what will help me to stay with healthy food . If you have health you can fight it without harmful medication the way God creationed for our bodies.
Given my diagnosis in July 2016 of Hashimoto's disease, I began my journey of gathering information to begin healing. Information overload was real!! So much to process and figure out. One day while trying to grocery shop and pick the best foods, I ran into a former colleague and after catching up, we realized we had the same issues and expressed the same frustrations. She gave me Cammy Benton's number and I called the next day. When my husband and I attended the informational dinner, we knew we were in the right place. Cammy was well informed, articulate and caring. At my initial meeting, she listened to my concerns and addressed each one. Upon completing the program, my symptoms have improved and I feel better equipped to go forward and manage my disease. If you are having medical issues that you cannot seem to resolve or if you are confused by conflicting information, I recommend giving Dr. Benton a call!
Years ago, I had the lucky accident of seeing Dr. Benton when an insurance-assigned doctor in Lincolnton was not available. She struck me as remarkably efficient, and made me feel heard when other doctors seemed robotic and more concerned about getting to the next patient. I’ve since followed her as she’s moved locations in her career, proudly listing her as my family doctor. I was excited for her to open her own functional medicine clinic where she could practice medicine on a dedicated, individual level without time restrictions or mandates by big businesses.
When my health issues became too frustrating, I enrolled in the Wellness Program to have Dr. Benton guide me out of my unhealthy habits and reset my body. Within a few weeks of simple diet modifications with the supplements she provided, I felt better mentally and physically, with more energy and much less bloat. It took almost two months before I’d fully committed to the program, but Dr. Benton and her staff never judged me or prodded me to progress; instead, they understood that it takes time to make and adopt changes, and they supported me in that journey.
I’ve worked in allied health, and am embarking upon a second career as a Physician Assistant, so I am admittedly skeptical as to whom I entrust my privacy, health, and medical treatment options. I consider myself fortunate to have Dr. Benton as my provider as I wholeheartedly trust her medical expertise, but more importantly I appreciate her compassion and dedication to my health. I recommend Dr. Benton and The Wellness Program to those looking to improve mind and body with positive, long-term effects for overall health.
I can’t begin to express how wonderful Dr. Benton is. I have been with Dr. Benton for quite a few years and can tell you that she is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors I have ever met. I never feel rushed when I am with her and I feel like she truly cares about making sure I reach my wellness goals. She truly understands that treating a patient is not just about physical health, but mental, emotional and spiritual health as well. I am 39 years old and struggled with my weight my entire adult life. This year I injured my back, had to be put on blood pressure medicine and found out that I am prediabetic. I began living in fear of my health and what that meant for me and my family. All these things have been causing a lot of fear and anxiety in my life. So when Dr. Benton started her new practice I knew her program was something I had to do. I joined her first group and I am having amazing results!! With Dr. Benton’s help, I have lost 65 pounds. I am no longer on blood pressure meds and I am feeling SO much better! I don’t crave foods like I used to and I finally feel in control when it comes to my eating habits. I used to be the type of person that would have to take a nap every day. In fact, I would get angry if I didn’t get a nap. Now, I have so much more energy and rarely nap. I have learned so much from the classes included in the program and everyone on Dr. Benton’s team is knowledgeable and super supportive!! With all the changes that I have been going through over the past months, Dr. Benton’s support has been absolutely the key to my success. I truly believe she is a blessing to me and my family and has saved my life!
It is imperative that we as Consumers of the Medical Community stand up and chastise the conventional health care system which is clearly not working and demand better! Doctors and medical care facilities being rewarded for time limited treatment by the insurance industry/government is not acceptable.
Fortunately, a few quality physicians such as Dr. Cammy Benton of Denver, N.C. are stepping beyond the social norms and offering medical care that gets to the root causes of symptoms versus just treating the symptom(s) alone. Dr. Benton achieves this with a keen desire to listen to her clients first (amazing skill), access each person (not a number) as presented. Follow-up with clients personally to consider how various health issues may be related. Dr. Benton provides referrals with specialist as necessary to rule things out and/or address them in a timely fashion. Her open mindedness to what many in the insurance industry/government term as unconventional medicine such as acupuncture, meditation, reiki, yoga, shamanism, nutritional supplements, dietary improvements even though it can eliminate and/or minimize medications! So clearly, you need to do some soul searching and ask yourself: What do I want from my health care provider? What does my health and wellbeing mean not only to myself but for my spouse, children, parents, co-workers, and friends? Dr. Benton goes the extra mile in realizing that medication can be provided in a financially responsible manner- my B-12 injections were costing approximately $200.00 for eight doses, upon her review I now have that being met for less than $40.00, for 30 doses! Now that's caring healthcare.
