I was referred by my doctor, whom I have been with for 20+ years, as he is no longer doing surgeries. I was petrified to go to anyone new, as I have put my trust in my doctor only for so long. I was immediately put at ease with Dr Benoit. Extremely knowledgeable, open to discussing my concerns and fears. He was so patient, both during appointments and ultimately my surgery. He had an EXCELLENT bedside manor, both with me as his patient and with my husband. SO HAPPY!!!

I had a botched surgery from him, it took 2 surgeries to repair what he did. He was not supportive whatsoever and he had been my doctor for 25 years. I would not recommend him at all!!

During both my high-risk pregnancies and beyond, Dr. Benoit has proven to be an experienced and highly capable doctor. He is also very kind and caring. My husband and I trust him completely and recommend him without any reservations.

DR BENOIT WAS AMAZING AND I WOULD RECOMEND HIM TO ANYONE!! HE WAS SO COMFORTING AND WARM THROUGHOUT MY ENTIRE PREGNANCY AND C-SECTION DELIVERY OF MY DAUGHTER. HIS KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY TO EXPALIN THINGS TO MY HUSBAND AND I WAS WONDERFUL. THIS HELPED EASE THE ANXIETY OF HAVING OUR FIRST BABY. I HAVE ALSO WITNESSED HIS SPLIT SECOND DECISION MAKING AND HIS ABILITY TO STILL HAVE A LEVEL HEAD WHEN BABY AND MOM NEED HIM.

Best, respectful bedside manner. He always takes the time to answer any questions. Never rushes or makes you feel like a number. Delivered my 4 babies and even in the face of some emergent decisions, was cool and confident. I have always felt I was in the best of hands.
