Review of Dr. Benz

- in Fullerton, CA |

I saw Ricarda Benz in 2017 for a routine check-up and physical. No past history of health problems and no current complaints. A month after I completed my bloodwork, I received a notice from my insurance stating I had to pay for the bloodwork. Dr. Benz requested bloodwork from Boston Diagnostics, which billed me over $3000 for route work. I have never been in a situation where my doctor, who is in-network, sends work to someone out-of-network without my consent/knowledge. I will never return.

Dr.Benz does not have a bed side manner. She is not emphatic. Her concern is to return the patient back to work right away regardless of the patient's physiological and physical well being.

Review of Dr. Benz

-Rancho Cucamonga, CA |

Dr. Benz was recommended to me and was a good dr. when I first saw her taking time and doing an overall assessment that was comprehensive and thorough. I first saw her when she was with the Gunn Tobin women's center. I found out I was pregnant, but she does not practice ob so I had to have a different dr. deliver the baby. I went back to her after that. By that time she had opened her own practice. I called to set an appt. and make sure my ins. was accepted. I had a very detailed conversation wi

Review of Dr. Benz

- in Fullerton, CA |

In 2016, my two daughters and I went to Dr. Benz for a routine physical. We're in excellent health. We have no past history of any health problem. The doctor ordered lab work. Two months later, I received the 'explanation of benefits'. The doctor sent us to LabCorp for our blood work, however, Boston Heart Diagnostics billed my insurance company total amount of $11,061($3,636/$3,636/$3,789.) Dr. Benz had ordered more tests even after we stopped seeing that doctor. Terrible!

Review of Dr. Benz

- in Los Angeles, CA |

I no longer live in Fullerton this is the only reason why I do not see Dr. Benz anymore. She is an caring doctor who takes the time to get to know you and your personal needs. Her staff is very professional and kind as well. Her and her staff helped me during a difficult period in my life. Dr. Benz provides a safe space for you to discuss your medical history and your needs. Dr. Benz is extremely professional, kind, and warm; most of all her and her staff are not judgmental. I cannot say enough

Review of Dr. Benz


Dr Benz is friendly & professional. She is a good listener & lets you ask questions. Makes me feel comfortable by giving thorough explanations. The staff has good follow through on test results. I would recommend her to family & friendshe. My teenage daughter has seen her as well & loves her.
