Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

R.I.P Dr. Benitez. The most kind, caring, compassionate doctor I have ever known. He treated my husband with his expertise and set a treatment plan following him every step of the way. During several emergencies he let him come in, no appointment needed. God bless you Dr. Omar and everything you have done for us. We were so lucky to have known you.

In 2016 Dr Benitez performed a TURP (according to the official surgical notes) on my husband. The surgery was supposed to be a urethrotomy. He performed the wrong surgery! In the surgical notes he lied & stated that my husband had a history of neuromuscular bladder problems. Not true! My husband has been incontinent for 3 yrs & has a suprapubic catheter. He can no longer play tennis or golf. Dr Benitez then left FL for 2 yr. When he returned, it was too late to file a malpractice claim. BEWARE

Dr. Benitez assumed care of my bladder cancer when the diagnosing doctor moved out the area. We immediately established a friendly rapport, and he took me through a course of treatment that ended up with my bladder being cancer-free. Throughout the course he was always positive and encouraging. His staff of nurses, medical assistants and receptionists are all excellent too. I would (and did) recommend him to anyone needing a good urologist.

DR. B is the best doctor I’ve even been seen by. He listens very well, and therefore understands your situation thoroughly. He is very talented, and professional, but even so, he is very kind. I think it must be hard to be so attentive to so many patients all day long. He doesn’t really show it though. My heath has improved greatly in his care. I’m very appreciative of his work. We’ve all had doctors who didn’t really care about us. That’s why I’m so glad to have him as my doctor.
