John Mallory in Amagansett, NY – Oct 19, 2018
Dr. Benito has taken care of my husband and I for 7 or 8 years. In fact, she saved my husband's life. It's difficult to find the words to describe how extraordinary she is. She listens intently, and no matter how busy she is, she never rushes you. Discussing some health issues can be very embarrassing - but not with Dr. Benito. She asks all the right questions to reach a diagnosis and makes her patients feel comfortable and truly cared for. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

I would recommend Dr. Benito to everyone. She is a Doctor who completely makes you feel comfortable and trusting. She has compassion, strength and makes you feel that she really is listening to you . No matter how busy the office is , she does not ever make you feel rushed or not listened to . Our family appreciates that she is interested not only in your situation, illness etc, but especially your lifestyle of how you might have gotten to that situation. She speaks with you not at you

Dr. Benito always takes the time to make you feel as though you’re her only patient in the office. Her knowledge and attention to detail is something that isn’t found in many doctors. One of her best atributes is the unexpected follow up call to assure her patients are feeling better!

Dr. Benito is simply amazing, when I had the pleasure of having her as my PCP she never gave up until she figured out what was wrong, I was a huge medical mystery on so many issues, she would research and figure different things out because she’s so smart, so caring, and always looking for what’s best for her patients I have gotten a lot of issues addressed and now on the road to recovery, she never gave up, she didn’t stop until she helped me. Will never gave another like her. She’s great.

Dr Benito is the loveliest doctor I ever met. It was just about love at first sight for both my husband and me. After our first appointment, I asked if she’d be my primary care doctor. There is a fresh openness to Dr. Benito. She welcomes new information, is accepting of my frequent choice of holistic alternatives - but not without letting me know what the tried and true medical ways are. The warmth and humor she brings to our appointments made us look forward the opportunity to seeing her.
