The nicest doctor I’ve been to in a while . Very friendly and thorough. Would be nice if primary doctors took some lessons from specialists like Dr. Benoit

Dr. Benoit is by far the nicest and most qualified doctor that resides in Tuscaloosa. I'd be more than happy to go back, but I haven't had any issues since my surgery! Incredible doctor, wonderful office, and amazing staff.

Great visit. Dr Benoit has been taking care of me for several years and I appreciate his excellent care. This last time I had Vertigo. He tested me and recommended I go to North River Therapy for treatment. It is working and it is wonderful not to have to walk with a walker to keep from falling. Thank you, Dr. Benoit!

Dr. Benoit thoroughly examined my ears, nose and throat, with instruments and a 3-D picture. He was able to show me how narrow the sinus passages were, then tackled my seasonal and chronic issues with a balloon procedure to enlarge the sinus passages and ear tubes, twice daily washing of the sinuses and a tablet to be taken as needed. I am sorry only that I did not inquire about help sooner rather than taking shots and antibiotics 2-3 times per year for infections.
