I typically would never "enjoy" going to a gynecologist, but Dr. Benavides is amazing! I feel completely at ease with her. She is a great listener and very compassionate. I would highly recommend her.

My appointments were timely. I didn't feel rushed. Dr. Benavides and the staff listened to my personal issues. I was giving many options. I felt cared about. The outcome was better than I expected. I have already recommended her to many. It was an overall great experience.

Dr. Benavides is one of the best OBGYNs that I have ever been to. She is incredibly kind, outgoing, comforting and extremely professional. This was my first time seeing her, and naturally I was skeptical (as most would probably be with a new doctor); however, I will be going back to her indefinitely. She is wonderful.
