Dr. Benest is very knowledgeable. I never felt like she was rushing me. She asked a lot of questions regarding my concerns and through our conversation was able to recommend additional supplements. I liked her holistic approach.

Dr. Benest is nice.... But DO NOT do Cool Sculpting!!!! It is a complete waste of money!!! It is very difficult to communicate with anyone in this office. They are never available, and rarely get back to you. Very disappointing.
