Patient Comments (10)
in Wilmington, DE |
I have been seeing Dr. Benes for nearly 30 years. He was the only Doctor to treat me in a manner that increased my quality of life. Up until I saw him, my condition was desperate after spending a lot of time seeing specialists at Penn that did not help at all. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Benes. He is the best GI Doctor in the region.

De Benes is fine. He's careful with older patients. He's managed my son's Colitis for a number of years. The office, though, seems unable to see patients in a timely fashion and the wait time is often 45 minutes plus. I see a different gastroenterologist and he seems as skilled as Dr Benes but the office doesn't overschedule.

Dr. Benes is wonderful, caring and kind. He does the job and does it well. Have been a patient of Dr. Benes for many years and would recommend him to family and friends.
in Bear, DE |
Straight forward manner; pleasant bedside manner; excellent diagnostician.
in Elkton, MD |
I did not meet Dr Benes until right before my procedure. He explained what he was going to do and made sure I was comfortable with all the information. He talked to me right after and explained the results in language that I could understand. He was very businesslike. No touchy feeling. I was told to call at a later date to get biopsy results. He personally called that night to tell me my results were negative. He was very relaxed and personable.

He cares about his patients, takes time to explain everything and most import calls back and returns phone calls. He is easy to talk to and has a good sense of humor. He has a way of making you feel comfortable.
