What an amazing team!
Dr. Benigar and staff have been so amazing to me during my time and treatment with Salience. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Special thanks to Courtney, Lindsay, Ashley and the receptionist Miss Anne for treating me like I’m more than just a patient! Who rocks? You do!

I've been with Dr. Benigar for 10 years, he has the best bedside manner and really digs deep to understand what is going on. I've followed him from one practice to another that's how much I've trusted him. However, about a month ago I was informed that he is no longer accepting patients because he took an administrative roll at Salience Health. Great guy, great psychiatrist.

I had a telehealth appt with Dr. Benigar last month. The whole process was not as nerve-racking as I thought it’d be. I felt at ease with the social worker during the intake part of the session, & the same with Dr. Benigar. I’d recommend him to friends/family.

I love this facility and my doctor Robert Benigar. They run so efficiently and they're always on top of everything here. If you have to have blood work such as lithium levels you don't have to go somewhere else. The facility is very neat and clean. Everyone is friendly. There's more than one way to get real time help during business hours and after hours they even take good care of you. Dr Benigar is amazing but I'm biased. I've been with him 11 years now ... he's absolutely incredible. I have a difficult case but Dr B always keeps me going nicely... he helps me through everything I need med wise. He works with me. I can't suggest enough such a good doctor I just can't even express it. I definitely suggest this place and doctor.
