Patient Comments (4)
Knoxville , TN |
He walked into the room with a rehearsed speech that had nothing to do with my condition. He listened to absolutely nothing I said. After my endoscopy with him, when I asked a question about a condition that he wrote on the chart that he said I had, he mocked me for asking and then walked out of the room.

He was the Dr assigned to me while I was at Parkwest Hospital. Not one that I was able to research myself prior to seeing him. RUDE, DISRESPECTFUL, UNPROFESSIONAL. Wouldn't listen to me or my concerns or explain the details of my GI test. Got way off track and focused on a medication that I take for asthma (prescribed by my pulmonologist). He told me repeatedly I did not need to take it. I did not see him in his office or interact with his staff.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
He is uninterested in what the patient has to say. He talks over the patient. He is insensitive and uncaring. Basically, he is very unprofessional. I will never go back to him.

I felt that Dr. Benitez made a decision prior to receiving all the information and based on an external factor. I was not given the opportunity to fully disclose my concerns. To be sure, we got off on the wrong foot. I waited an hour to see him and even heard him talking politics in the hall with a colleague 50 minutes after the appt time. I stuck my head out to see if his voice was engaged in casual conversation while I waited. Despite being noticed, his colleague had to end the conversation.
