Jonathan Benson, DO
I graduated from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and completed my clinical training in Philadelphia, PA. In 2009 I moved to Bloomington to begin a residency in Family Medicine at Advocate Bromenn which I completed in 2012. During my training as a general practitioner (in Family Medicine), I found myself drawn to the focused nature of phlebology (vein care) and the treatment of venous disease when I met the physicians at The Vein Specialists. I began learning with them in 2012 toward the end of my Family Medicine residency with the goal of formal training for a career in phlebology. I completed a training program in Advanced Vein Care and Treatment with The Vein Specialists, LLC” in 2013, while continuing to work as a Hospitalist in both Bloomington and Quincy, IL.
The relaxed atmosphere and ample time for patient care that phlebology offers certainly appeals to me, while remaining stimulating and challenging with an emphasis on hand-eye coordination. While I do still enjoy the diverse and complicated cases of hospitalist medicine, I especially enjoy the smaller patient population and longer relationships I have found in vein care. I love to see the tangible and significant therapeutic benefit which is often seen even early in treatment. Phlebology is a young and emerging field of medical science, and I’m fascinated and excited to be involved at this stage and with this practice.
In my spare time I appreciate art, literature, fishing, and international travel. I also continue to care for hospital patients on a part-time basis to keep in practice with general medicine (Family Medicine). At the Vein Specialists I have found my home. The compassionate and competent staff and physicians continuously nurture a philosophy of exceptional care for patients and their families. The values here are driven toward continual improvement and attention to all of the patient’s needs and questions, a perfect environment for healing.
