Elkridge, MD |
The tech/administrator scheduling appointment was extremely rude. I immediately stopped scheduling the appointment with her and chose another Physician. I'm sure Dr. Beningfield is an excellent ENT, however his appointment scheduling service could benefit from training in customer service.

Doctor Beningfield was kind and reassuring. Had to have surgery performed, all arrangements made without difficulty, surgery went well Was satisfied with my result, at least so far. He explained what needed to be done, after it was over, explained what he found, what he did and the expected prognosis. Weas confident in his skills and his judgement and would definitely recommend him to friends. Am disgusted to think I can't use patient portal, 2 people with same email address cannot.l
