Laura Hansen in Richland, WA – Jan 03, 2020
I searched for years to find a PCP that I felt listened to me and that I could trust. I found that in Dr. Benedict. I have moved my whole family to his practice and we are all thrilled with his level of care and how he takes the time to listen and make sure he understands our needs. Very lucky to have found him as our doctor!

Dr. Benedict sees myself as well as my three children. He is the most supportive, patient and caring doctor I've ever seen! He takes the time to sit and talk with you and never seems to be in any kind of hurry. He has been treating me for PPD the last few months and has been so helpful and understanding through everything!! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor :)

Elise Mcnair in Richland, WA – Apr 23, 2017
Dr. Benedict takes time to query, listen and explain any patient issues or concerns. I've never felt rushed or that he was concerned about anything other than our doctor/patient exchange. He's very easy to talk to and is excellent at putting treatment alternatives out for consideration and urgency (or lack of same) into perspective.
