About Shawn Bench, MD

I decided to become a physician to cure diseases and improve my patients' quality of life. I provide a minimally invasive, bloodless approach to all types of surgery. In my spare time, I enjoy off-roading and spending time with my family. The Sharp Experience means efficient, personalized care of the highest quality.

*Dr. Bench is an excellent physician. He listens intently. He is also a cool guy. Some doctors aren't.

Dr Bench is wonderful. His care is direct and concise yet he is patient with my questions. This will be my 2nd surgery with him and I am totally comfortable with his ability and care.
