This doctor is the worst. He makes up stories that are complete lies so he can stop seeing Medicaid patience. This type of patient doesn't make him enough money and that is all he is in business for. He is very uncaring and hateful. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to this so called man

Very Professional and Detail Oriented Doctor... extremely thorough and ordered detailed testing! TOO BAD he lets his UNPROFESSIONAL staff destroy his PROFESSION! They are totally unconcerned, unorganized and and obliviously unaware of the doctors orders for the patient. I have learned how critical it is for a doctor to have a professional.

My first visit was great. He asked questions about my background and medical history before making any determinations. He has ordered tests to determine needed treatment. I'd definitely recommend him to friends.

I was very pleased with Dr. Benitez. He did the needed tests before deciding how to treat my medical problems or condition. He was very calm, didn't act like, just because he is the doctor that I was stupid or something and couldn't understand what he's talking about. I think he's a great doctor and would gladly recommend him to anyone.
