I was so scared because I had to get an eye injection. The Dr is wonderful. Not only is he nice he is good. He put me at ease. I have to get another injection soon. I am not afraid. He explained everything and it was not painful. Everyone was so patient.

Dr. Benevento performed emergency surgery to repair a detached retina. I had never met him until the morning appointment prior to my surgery that afternoon. He was wonderful. He explained everything to me and made me feel less fearful. The surgery was a success, and his aftercare couldn’t be better. I highly recommend Dr. Benevento.

Yes! His office worked us in since he was the only specialist on a Friday. He was very thorough and took his time. My dad is elderly and disabled and Dr. Benevento and his staff were very patient.
