Care Philosophy

I have always wanted to be a Doctor. Medicine is my passion and my life. I try to see each patient of mine as an individual and create a plan tailored around their needs - both inside and out. I believe in a combination of Western medicine to help my patients, but also incorporating some of the Eastern philosophies that have proven successful such as spa treatments. Come in for a visit and you will see the difference that going to a compassionate doctor can make in your life!

Calabasas, CA |
I am so grateful to have found Dr. Benya and her staff. After many years of going without a doctor that I feel comfortable with, I am happy to say that Dr. Benya will be my forever doctor for me and my family. She has a nice office with an extremely friendly staff. I have never had an issue scheduling an appointment and I never have to wait long to see her. Dr. Benya is patient and I never feel rushed during my appointments. She listens to me and I feel like she actually cares.

Dr. Benya is an extraordinarily gifted physician. She is extremely knowledgeable, and has exceptional focus and caring when treating a patient. Her diagnostic skills have literally saved my life. I could not recommend her more highly.

takes days and days to get a response on your blood work and tests. Meanwhile you sit there anxiously waiting to hear back to see if something is wrong with you. Worst doctor ever - very rushed and doesn't take time to thoroughly review your file.

Do not use Dr. Benya if you require any prescription refills!!. They do not refill prescriptions upon request from the pharmacy or the patient. Refills happen after several days of calling the office over and over and begging the doctor to allow the refill. My prescriptions are never filled on time and I spend several days each month with zero medication & extreme pain & loss of work. Many requests for prompt refills have fallen upon a staff that doesn't care and a doctor that is far too busy !
