I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 after my ultrasound results were sent to Dr. Benitez at Beaumont Hospital. She called me to set up an appt. I asked why, that’s when she said because you have breast cancer. That’s how I found out! I did meet her to get an opinion on treatment plans, but she wouldn’t let me take notes (actually took my pen and pad I had brought out of my hands) and gave me two options but refused to recommend one over the other. Thank God I left and got another opinion

I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer a little over a year ago. It came as a complete shock I was paralyzed with fear hearing the diagnosis. My internist recommended seeing Dr. Benitez. I feel so lucky to have her as my doctor. She is very thorough. She explained each step of the process and was always accessible for any questions I had. She put the best team together for me in Dr. Dilworth and Dr. Margolis. I highly recommend her. She is the best.

If there were negative stars, I would give her a negative 10. She has no concern for her patients. If you have a complication, she will not talk to you and she has NO TRAINED staff available to speak to you. Because of her incompetence, I am now facing additional surgery. Do NOT put your life/health in her hands.....

Flawless. Warm. Caring. No ego. Took time to listen to explain to answer all my questions to make sure I was emotionally intact. Came highly recommended for her medical expertise. Instilled trust. Had same experience 6 yrs ago when brought family member to her. Office staff is superb

Had complications from surgery and called her office after hours, nothing but a busy signal. No way to reach her on a Friday night or all weekend long. She did not return call during office hours and had receptionist call me to tell me she'd talk to me at post op visit. Post op visit is 3 weeks after surgery. I have found her to be cold, clueless and arrogant. Run in the other direction.....

Dr Benitez is an excellent doctor. She answers all you questions, she is very thorough and has a wonderful bedside manner. I have recommended her to my friends and family and will continue to do so. I thank God for the gifts he has given her in the medical field. She has operated on me twice.

I was given a couple names from obgyn, and then more names from people who worked at WBH-Royal Oak MI. Dr. Benitez was always raved about, even from someone working over 100 miles away. I had some suggest I get a second opinion but I new I didn't have to.
