I have never met a more diligent doctor. She takes the time to explain and educate you????. Her assessment and treatment of my son's condition was spot on and it worked quickly just as she said it would. I couldn't be happier. If your child is having any dermatological issues go see her! She should give a seminar to the other pediatric dermatologists in south Florida. They could learn a thing or two from her.

Today was my son's first visit with Dr. Benjamin and we were both nervous. I have never met a more thorough doctor since going through my son's plight. Her staff was amazing, too. My son and I had a very pleasant experience. I highly recommend Dr. Benjamin.

Dr. Benjamin is outstanding! I was lucky enough to get an appt for my then 2 mth old daughter for a hemangioma on her nose. After thorough examination she determined treatment should be started ASAP since it was growing inside her nose which could block her airways. 1 year later and several laser therapy sessions, my girl is birthmark free! Her bedside manner is top notch. Her staff is the best. I will miss seeing her so often but am forever thankful for her care.

The office staff was SO VERY friendly and welcoming. Carolina and Selina were so helpful and kind. Dr. Benjamin was so gentle and sweet to my little son. She was very thorough and took her time to explain everything to me. I did not feel hurried at all. I had such a great feeling about the whole experience.

Dr. Benjamin is "AMAZING" our we took our daughter to see her for a hemangioma. We were a little hesitant at first we had gone to the other children's hospital in Miami-Dade and had a horrible experience when we walked into Dr. Benjamin office we felt like family. She took the time to calm all our fears and gave us treatment options. The personal care we received and attention was awesome we drive 100 miles round trip from our home to see her,and worth every mile. Her staff is just as good

Here at Memorial I have received the best treatment for my kids. Dr. Latanya Benjamin team and stuff is wonderful. She is not only a doctor but has preformed an amazing surgery on my child. She had made sure to follow up after surgery and recovery to ensure everything was done properly. Always the team and herself has been there for when we have needed them. I will recommend this office to anyone for the best care in Dade & Broward. I will recommend her as an Excellent provider.
